It could be either, but likely  GERD which is often characterized by intermittent flare-ups and a variety of symptoms.  GERD has little to do with hyperacidity; it's all about refluxing stomach acid onto the esophagus which isn't designed to handle it.  Vinegar is very acidic and will aggravate it.   Diet and posture are important.  Read up on how to control with diet, although many people need on-going treatment with PPi's like Nexium or Prilosec (omeprazole).  It not a bad idea to get an endoscope so that you can make sure there is nothing else going on that needs attention.  You will be reassured if there's nothing else and catch it early if there is something more serious.  Endoscopes are easy. Find a good gastroenterologist who routinely does endoscopes.
