Can food intolerance cause pain underneath breastbone?

I sometimes experience a tight knot-like sensation in the stomach area, in the gap just underneath the breastbone, which often results in me having slow, uncomfortable breathing, and feels like slow suffocation. Is it likely to be food intolerance as it often happens after eating cheese or chips, which I now try to eat in moderation.Your opinion would be appreciated.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Yes, it could be most probably due to acidity. You need to avoid those foods that exacerbate the symptoms and hot, spicy foods. Eat meals regularly every day, drink plenty of water, take medication for acidity if necessary.

If you have further queries, I'm happy to help you.
