Hello,

Thank you for posting a query.

Firstly, the symptom you described, may occur in a variety of diseases, ranging from acidity, costochondritis, mastalgia to coronary disease. But, being a female, there is lower chance of to be a cardiac problem.

So, most probably, it is due to hyperacidity. But, you have to visit a general physician for clinical examination to rule out any other possibilities.

For present situation, take pantoprazole group of drug in empty stomach daily. Avoid long duration fasting. Try to take light food every 2 hours.

Lastly, consult with a general physician first for clinical examination and for further management.

Hope this information is suffices. Let me know, if you have any more question.

Regards.

Hello,

Thank you for writing back.

Firstly, i have already told you to visit a doctor for physical examination to rule out any other possibilities.

In the mean time you can take this Pan 40. But, after consulting the doctor in person, you should take follow the prescription.

Here, I cannot give you prescription. It is impractical.

Regards.
