Thanks for your query.
From the brief information provided, I feel that you are suffering from Gastro-esophageal-reflux-disease (GERD
) which is characterized by stomach acidity, reflux of stomach acid into the food pipe, causing burning pain in center + particularly left side of chest.
You need to undergo Endoscopy
to directly visualize the stomach and early part of intestine for evidence of excessive production of acid or presence of ulcers.
A 2-weeks' course of Pro-kinetic drug, such as, domperidone
PLUS anti-H.pylori therapy; followed by, with effect from Day 15, a daily capsule of anti-acid drug regularly for 3-4 months, will cure the problems.
Consult your doctor and apprise him of my opinion. I am certain that he agree with me, order required tests, and- based on the reports- will prescribe suitable treatment as advised.
