Brief answer....your symptoms could be related to gastrointestinal disorder. Detailed answer... Hello, Thanks for the query. Although there are various causes for upper chest discomfort like cardiac disorder,chest muscles disorder or gastrointestinal disorders but since your cardiac causes have been ruled out,the most likely cause in you seem to be due to some gastrointestinal disorder. This suspicion also gets strengthened by the fact that you are constantly having symptoms of burping. There can be various causes of gastrointestinal disorder like .. Gastro esophageal reflux disorder Hiatus hernias Gall bladder diseases You need to consult a gastroenterologist for proper investigations and diagnosis. Investigations required would be ultra sound abdomen,CT abdomen and a GASTROSCOPY etc. A proper treatment can be instituted only after a proper diagnosis. I hope it helps,however you may revert to me for any further query. Best of luck Thanks
