Brief Answer:
Gastrc issues are more likely

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for query,
As you age is just 31 chances of it being cardiac are too low unless you are a chronic smoker or a tobacco abuser.

So if you are a nin smoker go for simple ecg.
In case you are smoker 2 d echo should be done.
if these tests are normal you are having acid peptic reflux disorder or gastritis.
It cause soft tissue injury and inflammation in gut wall and esophagus causing pain of nature you described.
Sternum and nearby arear are usually involved.
An endoscopy has to be done to ruke out the cause.
For time being would suggest you to take Omeprazole 40 mg once daily with a glass of chilled milk.
Take any over the counter antacid syrup along with it.
Follow up with reports!
Take care!

I am a chronic drinker with recent gastritis and am taking Ranitidine 150 to be able to continue drinking. I was diagnosed with gastritis a week ago and began the acid reducer 4 days ago with success. I just began having bloody stools this morning, what should I do about this? I cannot stop drinking as I have to socialize A LOT for my job and have anxiety issues as well as developed a reliance. I will take some days off this week, but I need to know if I'm in any danger if I continue drinking over the next two days.

I m 17 years old and I have been having stomach problems for a year and a half now. I go to a gastroenterologist now. I ve had blood work, xrays, and a biopsy done. I found out I have gastritis, a hiatal hernia and acid reflux. I started taking prevacid and staying away from acidic foods. I still got sick. I cut gluten out of my diet and it seemed to help (I was tested for celiac, and it was negative). I ve been gluten free for about 7 months now. I m still having diarhhea and occassional nausea. Is there anything else it could be besides gluten?
