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

It could be a muscular pain or pain associated with acid reflux. You can take analgesics, like Diclofenac and antacids, like Pantoprazole for symptomatic relief. Avoid spicy food. If the pain persists, better to consult a physician and get evaluated.

Wishing you good health.

Thanks.
