    Teresa, do you have a GI?  If not, get a referral and ask for an endoscopy.  It does sound like reflux, so your best option right now is to go on a reflux diet until this is done.  So any food that triggers the reflux needs to be removed for now.  If you are like me which foods do not trigger my reflux (but I have reflux), then just do a  google for reflux foods but you need to have an endoscopy to find out more about your reflux. Are you taking any medication for reflux like PPI's or H2 Blockers?
