Brief Answer:
Possibility of gastritis is more.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Solar plexus area is stomach area.
And pain in that area is mostly due to gastritis.
Your pain is also associated with swallowing food. So possibility of gastritis is more.
So take combination of pantoprazole and levosulperide on empty stomach.
Avoid hot and spicy food. Avoid junk food. Avoid large meals, instead take frequent small meals.
Go for walking after meals.
Don't worry, you will be alright with all these.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
