Detailed Answer:
Welcome to XXXXXXX

Sudden onset chest pain discomfort on left side, burping can occur due to following reasons.

- First possibility we can think of is indigestion itself. It is a common problem and it is characterized by sudden onset burning discomfort in epigastric region. It is associated with burping. Some times nausea is also seen.

- Other possibility is some cardiac problem. Angina can present with chest discomfort on left side and it can also present with burping. If problem persists then get your ECG done in order to rule out any cardiac problem. Get your BP checked as low BP can be a reason for these symptoms.

- Other possibility we can think of is anxiety attack. In non-specific anxiety sudden onset chest pain, palpitations etc are seen. Along with these other symptoms tremors, sweating etc symptoms are also seen. Relaxation exercises also help in such cases.

So I would advise you to consult a Physician if the symptoms are really bothersome. Most likely the symptoms are due to gastric problem. High acid secretion can result in burning epigastrium and chest pain. It can cause burping also. Medicines like ranitidine, omeprazole, pentoprazole help in improving such clinical symptoms. Other antacids containing aluminum hydroxide like digene help in quick symptomatic relief.

Hope this helps you, if you have more questions you can ask again.
