Brief Answer:


Detailed Answer:


But it seems that you are suffering from gastritis which can cause a pain in the form of waves due to gastric wall contraction.

However, pain due to gastritis should be relived by Omeprazol tablets once daily and ranitidine tablets before every meal.

You should also stick to soft, non spicy and non fried meals in the time being.

If the pain did not improve or gets referred to another sites or you.

Experience difficulty breathing then you should seek medical care to perform an ecg and an echocardiogram to exclude cardiac causes.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
