Ur symptoms are suggesting an acid peptic disease so u can take antacids after food, other medications for Gerd .
But since ur pain is in chest region so I will definitely suggest you to go for Ekg at the time of pain.
Along with dis u should also improve ur diet and reduce oily /spice content. And increase fiber content.
Hope my advice will help you.
