GERD a Possibility: GERD (Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease) could be causing your symptoms. This is when acid in the stomach goes up into the esophagus and causes pain. It's also possible you have a hiatal hernia, which can cause similar symptoms. I recommend you see your family doctor when possible.
