Your symptoms are suggestive of gastritis due to hyperacidity. You may require antacids to control the situation. These following steps may help control the gastritis: - Don't skip meals, you may not feel like eating but in such conditions you should have the reduced amount in frequent intervals(i.e. 3 square meals broken down to 5 or 6 as you can tolerate) and slowly increase as you get better. - Reduce/ Avoid spicy,fried, fatty, junk and oily food - Avoid/ Limit drinking coffee, tea and carbonated drinks to once a day - Exercise regularly and maintain a healthy weight as per your BMI(30-45mins of carido exercises per day) - Increase daily intake of water to 3 liters - Avoid/Stop smoking and drinking if you have the habit. - Reduce stress through methods such as yoga/meditation/tai-chi. - Avoid painkillers as it will increase your gastric problems at this moment.

Probably gastritis.. Having a pain, heaviness or discomfort in your chest can be scary. It does not always mean that you are having a heart attack. There can be many other causes, including Other heart problems, such as angina Panic attacks Digestive problems, such as heartburn or esophagus disorders Sore muscles Lung diseases, such as pneumonia, pleurisy, or pulmonary embolism Costochondritis - an inflammation of joints in your chest Some of these problems can be serious. Get immediate medical care if you have chest pain that does not go away, crushing pain or pressure in the chest, or chest pain along with nausea, sweating, dizziness or shortness of breath. Treatment depends on the cause of the pain. To rule out cardiac issues. Get a ECG and 2D echocardiography done. If they are normal then get a TMT / stress echo done.. If they are also normal then you have nothing to worry from heart side Meanwhile take Tab. Flexon Mr twice a day for 5 days Cap.
