Brief Answer:
Get ECG test

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Considering your age I suggest you get an ECG test done to rule out heart attck. Because heart attack symptoms also mimick gastritis symptoms.

It would be preventive and life saving to get an ECG from nearest hospital.

Let me know if you need anymore help.

Hi,

Definitely yes. Pain pills cause such gastritis episodes.

Always take an antacid before taking pain pills.
