Brief Answer:
HAs Zantac improved your symptoms?

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about this heartburn and upper back burning pain that you have reported. This is suggestive of a possible acid problem. Zantac would normally be of great help here. If this fails to address your symptoms, try omeprazole which is certainly more efficacious at addressing this problem. If both fail, then consider seeing a gastroenterologist for an endoscopy exam. For now, there is no immediate red flag and therefore no major reason to be worried. Patiently go through the above treatment suggestions.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be. Above all, thanks for using our services.
