Question: Hi

Yesterday I had a server chest pain for close to 30 min and it disappeared. I'm bit worried on this. I eat Food most of the time outside due to which i face a lot of Gastric Problems also.

Brief Answer:
Mostly GERD

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for the query.

As you state, that you had severe chest pain for 30mins and later it relieved on itself. You have lots of gastric problems and you usually have hotel food suggests that the pain might be due to GERD. It's Gastroesophageal reflux disease and the pain could be due to oesophageal spasm.

It so happens that the lower end of oesophagus(food pipe) which is attached to the stomach, contracts itself to avoid any reflux of gastric juice from the stomach.

As you are in your 20s, a cardiac problem would be difficult but it would be better to just rule out any cardiac ailments. For this you need to get an ECG and if required further investigations.

Follow these instructions which will help you in improving your gastric conditions:
1. Consume plenty of water and fruit juices. A min of 2 - 3 ltrs/day.
2. You can consume a glass of water an hour before and after every meal. This will make sure that you are getting adequate amount of water.
3. Have meals at regular intervals.
4. Avoid spicy and oily food. As much as possible try to have home food.
5. Take Tab Gelusil three times a day, half an hour before food and as when you sense heartburns.
6. Antacids like Pantoprazole 40mg, once a day might be required.
7. Considering yours to be a sedentary lifestyle, have a water bottle on your desk and keep sipping water now and then or whenever you have heartburns.
8. Follow regular physical exercises and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Hope this answers your query. If any further questions, will be happy to help you.

Hello Doctor, It has been now 1 month started, that sometimes I get motion after 2-3 days and that too not proper motion. I need to put a lot of stress and effort to dispose the stools . After that, I get my body tired and sweat sometimes. In addition too, I also have this acidity problem too for past 5 years. If I have certain foods, I would have this acidity problem. My stomach would be increasing and some times when that acidity goes out through mouth, I feel much relief.So started having Gelusil tablets , which helped me in getting reduced the acidity problem. But even though when acidity goes through mouth, I have a burning sesnsation felt in middle of chest and would have dramatic pain at that point of time. Can you help me in providing a solution or what needs to be done for these 2 problems. Thanks, Sajih R
