Just to summarize, you are stating that you have issues with fatigue, muscle aches, and heartburn and you are wondering what you can do to alleviate these symptoms? If that's correct, please tell me what you have already tried.

I take Zantac and gas x as needed. But I’m so tired all the time. I’ve been anemic in the past, but had it tested a couple months ago and it was ok.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 1 month ago

You mentioned that you aren't taking care of yourself as much as you need to. Unfortunately, these symptoms you are having are lifestyle symptoms, meaning that if you don't have enough exercise, enough sleep, eating well, etc, then you are at risk for them. I can certainly give you advice on what to take to help with the symptoms but adopting a healthier lifestyle of course is much harder since I don't know your circumstances.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
