Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
That is likely due to the mild inflammation of the lower esophagus.
That will cause discomfort as you described.
You can try Maalox liquid 30 ml 3 times daily.
Also Omeprazole 20 mg twice daily for 2 weeks should take of the problem well.
Thank you for sharing your concerns with us today. If you have any additional questions or need further clarifications, please do not hesitate to ask. I am here to answer them. I wish you good health. Regards, ***** *****
