This is Dr. David

your stomach could be producing too much stomach acid which can eat away at your stomach and cause stomach inflammation, also known as gastritis when your stomach is empty.

you might benefit from over the counter stomach acid reducing agents like zantac or tagamet or maalox or mylanta to help reduce your stomcah acid.

you also need to avoid alcohol, spicy foods, oily foods, sodas, fried foods, tomato sauce which can further cause more stomach acid production.

you should see your doctor about this as well

have you tried any over the counter stomach acid reducers?
