This question would best be answered by your medical doctor. I would suggest following a diet that contains low acid producing foods to decrease potential irritation. Here are some tips that I give to people with acid reflux:

Fix your diet. The things that are common and easy to remove are spicy foods, citrus foods, tomato-based foods, and fried foods.
Get rid of possible food allergens for a short period of time, like two weeks. Gluten and dairy are the most common ones.
Try to get rid of the triggers for a few weeks, like alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine, all of which trigger reflux. Not forever, but try it for a little while, and see if it’s causing your problem.
Change your lifestyle. For example, don’t eat three hours before bed. Give yourself a chance to digest your food.
Deal with stress before you eat. Try a very simple technique that I call “Take Five.” Take five breaths before each meal. Count in to the count of five, out to the count of five, and breathe deeply. You’ll notice a huge relaxation in your nervous system, and you’ll digest your food better.
