Brief Answer:
gastric reflux probably

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome in HCM

I can understand your concern

According to the history you have already excluded heart and lungs problems as the cause of the pain.

It seems to me that it might be a gastric reflux which means the secretions of the stomach goes back in the esophag .It is often especially in younger patients.

It can be evaluated by fibrogastroscopy examination. Probably your doctor will give you treatment with antiacids medications (like Esomeprazol orally twice for one month).

Please discuss with your doctor for the above

Regards and feel free to ask me again

Brief Answer:
continue discussion

Detailed Answer:
Hi again

Yes it i nearly normal that in obese during or after an effort to have nasal congestion.

Obesity is another cause for reflux which aggravates the situation even under the treatment .

So try to lose some weight and do the correct treatment and you will feel better for sure.
