Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

This is likely related to acidity and gastroesophageal reflux disease. Also, just see if this pressure feeling worsens on applying pressure over the area, if yes then it may indicate associated musculoskeletal cause. So, it does not appear a worrisome issue. You should have a healthy lifestyle like avoiding fatty oily spicy food. Avoid heavy meals, inspite have multiple small meals. Do not immediately sit or rest after meals, but have a walk for 10 to 15 minutes.

Avoid smoking and alcohol if any. Also, the sleep pattern should be normal as much as possible. You should get prescribed antacid probiotics combination like Cyra D or Pan DSR before breakfast for seven days.
