    I have suffered this for long time and i feel that drinking lot of water will worsen your condition for sure. You should take something that can absorb extra amount of acid that is produced in you stomach and has alkaline affect, like Cottage cheese.
    Dont go for anything that is sour in taste.It would make you pay if you have frequest chest burns or reflux.Even sour apple would be harmful.

    3 things you must do if you suffer from hyper acidity regularly :
    1. Dont eat half cooked/ bland food.
    2. Dont smoke
    3. Sleep in time
