Possible.: Straining ("valsalva maneuver") can provoke reflux, as can tight clothing and overeating.

Gerd: This can be gastritis gerd or other GI issues recommend seeing your pcp or GI doctor to begin work up and get you on the proper medications. Alternatively this could even be something as simple as a muscle strain.
Dr. Victor Bonuel

It could be just: Stomach irritation/gastritis or intestinal spasms. Follow up with your dr for reassurance. Take care! http://www.Mayoclinic.Com/health/gastritis/ds00488.
