A 34-year-old female asked:

I've been having chest pain that feels like a gas bubble, travels to upper back- worse when taking a deep breath or swallowing also with movement?

Pain: Sounds like you actually do have gas pains. If you can't stop air swallowing, you can try taking simethicone(Gas-X) four times a day and see if it helps.
