Been diagnosed with gerd nothing helps

I think i was diagnosed with gerd and gastritis no one will give me a definate answer. but nothing helps and no one is really giving  me info. I have horrible burping with chest pain and all sorts of indigestion. I also have a rapid heart beat when i wake up in the am. The dr says my heart is perfectly normal and it is prolly caused by my stomach being inflamed. Any ideas what the cause could be.

Have an EKG done for the evaluation of  rapid heart rate. PPI along with lifestyle modifications would be helpful for relief of symptoms from GERD.
Lifestyle modifications -
1. Head elevation while sleeping
2. Small frequent meals
3. Going to bed 2- 3 hours after food
4. Avoiding bed time snacks
5. Avoiding smoking and alcohol
6. Avoiding tight fitting clothes
7. Avoiding cola, citrus drinks, carbonated drinks, tea, coffee, spicy food
8. Weight reduction
