Thank you for visiting health24.com.
Considering that your problem is chronic, you will have to consult a gastroenterologist, to have a gastroscopy and a barium meal done. This will exclude pathology of the upper gastrological system.
It is important that you have this done as soon as possible, as chronic irritation can cause severe problems, especially in the oesophagus.
