low dose aspirin is not a great idea as aspirin can upset the stomach and cause more stomach acid production.

ranitidine is a good idea.

avoiding spicy foods, alcohol, carbonated drinks, tomato sauces, fried foods, large meals, black pepper can help you eat healthier and have less stomach acid production.

you can also add on prilosec 20mg to further decrease stomach acid

I would stop the aspirin or take the aspirin after a meal only, never on an empty stomach.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
