Hello Good Evening,

According to your symptoms you might be suffered from Gastric or duodenal ulcers which cause pain/burning sensation and nausea and even vomiting.

After having spicy food your symptoms rise, because there is physiological more release of acid for the digestion of food.

For the confirmation of your diagnosis you should go through UGI Endoscopy.

After that you should be prescribed PPI, Domperidone, Antacids and Sucralfate as per guidance of your GP.

Following steps should follows to lessen your symptoms:

-Walk after eating a meal.

Hi ! What is your dietary habit ? Do you eat frequently from outside like fast spicy food ? If so, possibly you are having acid reflux disease, and at times esophageal spasm due to irritation caused by the acid. You have to modify your dietary habits to more of home made roughage with fresh fruits and enough of liquids, and avoid spicy foods which may precipitate the esophageal spasm causing pain in your chest. If it troubles you lot even after this, you have to consult your family physician who may advise you for some prokinetic drug along with a proton pump inhibitor, and may suggest you to go for an endoscopic examination and an ECG if need be. Take care.
