I am experiencing a burning feeling in my chest

Im 15, im experiencing a burning feeling in my chest , sometimes it leads to the bottom of my throat , read this? it leads to alot of saliva being produced in my mouth, and it just really burns, its been going on for a while, should i be worried? I often chew gum, mainly juicy fruit, and for some odd reason is breaks apart in my mouth. Does this have anything to do with my heart burn or acid reflux? Because its happened with my friends too, i know that this is a wee bit off my topic question, but if chewing gum is making me feel like shit to say the least, i would like to know

Sounds Like you are having some heart-burn. It is a typical problem these days. If it continues to be bothersome to you I would suggest you mention this to your Mom and ask her to take you to see your doctor. You just might need to modify what you eat and drink and see if that helps you any. Good luck.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Good Day
You seem to be having oesophago-gastritis. This is causing a symptom called Water brash where mouth gets filled with saliva. STOP SMOKING AND DRINKING ALCOHOL. Avoid fruit juices for a while. Avoid spicy food and hot food. Consume milk, lassi and other cool food for now. You need an endoscopy to rule put any ulcer in the stomach dear. Show yourself to the Doctor. For now you may take Cap.Omeprazole 20mg in the morning half an hour before breakfast and half an hour before dinner.
