Pain in right lung while swallowing food, liquid. Treated for chest infection before. Remedy?

Hi I am getting a pain (not severe) when I swallow liquid and food. It feels like it is inside my right lung front to back. My breathing is fine and not really an issue between eating and drinking. I had a severe chest infection back in late December (2-3 weeks in total) with lots of coughing but that went and then this started around 2 weeks ago?

I dont know your age , but pain on right side of the shest while having food and liquid indicates gastritis with oesophagitis , meaning your last infection made you take alot of medicine making you prone to stomach and food pipe problem

I would recommend that omeprazole , or OTC like sucralfate will help you resolve your symptoms , taking these medicines empty stoamch before food , avoid spicy food and soda during treatment , f not resolved review of gastroenterologist will be required

Hope this helps
