Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am 17 years old and I usually suffer from chest pain, and burping after eating something or drinking. I do not know what is this, sometimes shortness of breath occurs for a short period of time. I am a little worried about this. When I searched this on google there were things like GERD, acid reflux, heart attack, and all. Can you please help me out with this problem?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I see you are worried about your chest pain. Do not worry, your symptoms particularly relating to food connects your chest pain to a gastric related problem. And it fits into GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) in which there will be acid reflux, which in turn causes pain due to intolerance of food pipe to the acid.

Probable diagnosis


Treatment plan

Tablet Pantoprazole + Levosulpiride 1 tablet twice daily half an hour before food for two weeks, syrup Sucralfate + Oxetacaine 10 ml one hour before food three times a day for two weeks.

Preventive measures

Avoid spicy food. Avoid heavy meals. Do not lie down immediately after taking food.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
