Stinging and stuck up sensation in chest, discomfort, burp. What is it?

2 days ago I noticed that I had a feeling in my chest between my breasts as if I had to burp but the burp was stuck. Almost like I have a pills stuck feeling. I have been having discomfort from this and I am burping more often than usual. It does nit hurt to swallow fluids or food. I just always feel pressure like I have to burp or something is stuck?

General Surgeon 's  Response

Thank you for the query.

Such symptoms can appear due to acid reflux disease, stomach inflammation or peptic ulcers. However it can be also a first symptom of esophageal cancer. That is why, its important to do not ignore such symptoms and have this condition ruled out.
That is why I suggest you to visit your doctor and have gastroscopy done. During this test Helicobacter Pylori infection will be checked which can also trigger such symptoms.

In a meanwhile please avoid coffee, fatty foods, fried foods, fruit juices, alcohol.

Hope this will help.
