Thanks for posting your query.

I am Dr. Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your query.

Increased flatulence could be due to infection, malabsorption or due to certain food items you eat.

For relief -
1. Avoid sugar and milk products
2. You can take digestive supplements

Chest pain and chest burning could be due to acid reflux disease.
For relief you may take antacid medications.

I hope that answers your question.
