Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear madam, Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX Well looking into your query I will like to tell you that there is a possibilty that you may had acute gastritis but still in my opinion you should see your cardiologist to rule out any kind of cardiac involvement although the chances are less but at least an ECG examination is required . If it would have been gas problem only , muscles would not have been sore till this long . So, in my opinion you must see a doctor . Take care. Dr. Shruti
