Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX

I have gone through your medical history carefully and understood your concerns.

You are reporting to have had an acid reflux attack 3 days ago and you are still having discomfort when swallowing foods and between shoulder blades.

At this point, if I was your caring doctor would advise to run:
- upper endoscopy
- abdominal ultrasound
for further evaluations.

I also think you should be take PPIs apart antacids and diet changes.

Hope it was of help! Any other query, I'll welcome!
