Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Your symptoms seem to be indicative of Acid Peptic Disease. This is a problem caused due to increased acidity in the stomach, associated with gastric or duodenal ulcers, and often acid reflux also. Since over-the-counter antacids don't seem to be giving you relief, I would advise you to consult a doctor for a proper evaluation and further treatment. Effective treatment options are available and if taken promptly can relieve your symptoms and suffering.

I would also advise you to have regular meals, avoid oily and spicy foods and drink plenty of water. Regular physical exercise can also promote better digestion and decrease your symptoms.

Best wishes,
Dr. Sheeba Stephen

You should neither panic nor take chest pain too lightly. Slight chest pain may be the result of gas formation or some other minor ailment.The best thing to do to treat the condition is to have a medical test to identify the cause of the chest pain. After the test indicates the cause of chest pain direct treatment of the condition can be started. This will also reduce the recurrence of chest pain. Treatment can be determined only after determining what caused the chest pain. This is possible only when the patient is taken to the hospital or a doctor as early as possible.
1. Boil a few pods of garlic in milk and drink the concoction with the garlic pods daily to prevent chest pain.
2. Make a juice of Tulsi leaves and take a spoon of this juice with honey on empty stomach every day.
3. Dates should be pounded along with the seeds and consumed on a daily basis.
4. Eat fruits like Watermelon, Banana and Cucumber 3 to 4 times in a day.
