Thank you for the input.

I am very sorry for your symptoms.

Your symptoms can be due to reflux disease.

You can take antacid 3-4 times 2 hours after food and at bedtime.

Over the counter medicine Gas- X can help in controlling gas.

Acid lowering agents like ranitidine or nexium can be tried in the morning.

In addition to medicines, you need to have some lifestyle modification like avoiding tea, chocolate, coffee, alcohol, tobacco which aggravate the condition.

Take bland non spicy, low fat diet.

Avoid late night food.

You can also have the head end of the bed raised by using extra pillow.

This will prevent night time reflux.

In some cases H. Pylori infection may precipitate it.

If the symptom continues, I would advise to take an examination by doctor again.

I hope this information will be helpful.

If you have any query, please feel free to ask.

I will. Sometimes, I wake up at night because I have a funny feeling in my stomach/chest (not sure where) and then I feel my stomach upset but I don't get any acid reflux. I sometimes feel that my heart bets hard (not faster or slower just hard). It that a symptom of acid reflux too?

There can be irregular heart rhythm, faster heart rate or tachycardia.
This can arise from anxiety, stress.
Heart issues can be there too.
An EKG or Holter can be taken.
