    Sounds like acid reflux.. Try some antacids aee if they help. also look at what food you eat prior to it happening such as spicy foods / fruit/ chocolate . You may be able to find the trigger

    You are having epigastric pain. If the pain is traveling like down your arm u need to see your dr because it would be cardiac. You probably are having heartburn and reflux. If it just started u need to look at your diet if you started any new meds. You can chew gum that helps to keep the acid down. I would try Prilosec(omeprazole) OTC or some other PPI like Prevacid or nexium.

    If it is a minor issue the try Zantac or Pepcid take them an hour before meals.

    Look at your diet try eating small frequent meals like 5 per day do not have huge

    meals. Try to stick to a soft diet stay away from soda,choc,spicey food and sweets.

    If these do not help then I would go see your dr. If u started any new meds or ur on a weird diet I would talk to your dr about the new meds. Hope this helps

      Isn't DICA LSD. U have a weird dr recommending something so stupid and dangerous. Try chewing gum it helps acid reflux. Taking any medication or illegal drugs can cause reflux. U can also drink a little bit of baking soda and warm water. It immediately neutralizes acid.

      Yes the baking soda worked

      for the burning in my esophagus it is

      only temporary but it works

      fast if u can't stand the burning. Do not do a whole lot of baking soda just enough for a gulp or 2. Do not do it all the time because baking soda has

      salt in it. Have u tried gasex for your stomach or mylanta. Also chewing gum really works. It would help the

      burning in your chest. Get sugar free gum but u need to see a dr if it is that

      bad
