What is the cause of chest and back pain after a heavy meal ?

I m 18, and a few days ago, I ate a lot more than usually in one day, maybe I didn t digest properly. Since then, I ve been having stomach pain (like the middle region of my torso ) and in my chest and back. It still hasn t subsided, and I ll go see the doctor if it doesn t by tomorrow, but does this sound like acid reflux? What can I do to help it?

Welcome to HCM.
What about your bowel movement ? Is it regular?
Drink plenty of water, avoid all spicy food. Eat fruits and drink milk if possible.
If the pain is not relieved after having good bowel movement, then it is necessary that you should consult a doctor. If necessary the doctor will advise you to get an ultrasound scan done along with other investigations.
Wish you all the best.
