I suggest that you use Gaviscon Advanced three times daily prior to meals in combination with Hexamet 400mg, twice daily, as a temporary relieve for your symptoms. These drugs are available over the counter.

It is however, very important to consult your doctor for a barium meal and gastroscopy, as it is possible that you are suffering from a gastric ulcer.
