thanks for ur query
ur history suggest probably u have GASTRO-ESOPHAGEAL REFLUX DISEASE
for that u need proper evaluation
upper GI endoscopy and biopsy if suggested
24 hr ph study at lower end of esophagus
u should use pantoprazole 40 mg once daily before food along with lignocaine gel
it ll obviate ur symptoms
donot smoke, take bland diet, sleep with head end elevated
also need to have a chest x-ray to exclude lung causes
these problems may also be attributable to heart causes like ischemic heart disease
u need to have an ECG and STRESS test for that
i think by all these u ll get ur answer
thank u take care
