In some cases esophagus
may become sensitive to certain food products. Due to that it develops spasm and pain in presence of these product. Esophagus spasm may cause pain over sternum
and may radiate to nearby area like jaw. Acid reflux
may also lead to to similar symptoms.
So, it is better to avoid these food items in his case for some duration. You can take some analgesics with antacids (Pentoprazole) for pain. Evaluation for acidity may also needed in his case.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Wish you Good Health.
