Brief Answer: Urgent ECG and endoscopy Detailed Answer: Hi. Thanks for posting your query on HealthcareMagic. I need to know more details about your condition to be better able to help you. How long is the problem? Is it acute meaning from just now or for many days? If the problem is for a few days or more without sweating, breathless or radiation of pain to left upper limb (arm), the problem is due to a condition called eosophagitis. The treatment to start would be to give her antacid liquid ( happicid / mucain gel) 3 teaspoonfull every 3 hours, Tablet ranitidine 150 mg twice daily/ pantoprazole 40 mg once daily. Cold liquids orally. This is all to start on an immediate basis. You should consult a Gastro-enterologist as soon as possible and go for an endoscopy and further management as per his guidance. Also needed is an earliest possible ECG to rule out cardiac problem. This is mandatory. I hope this answer satisfies your query. Dr Chandrakant
