Recommend : Recommend that you see you physician for a clinical examination. There are several things that could be causing these symptoms that need to be ruled out or in. You may be suffering from stomach ulcers, gastric reflux, hiatal hernia, or nut cracker esophagus to name a few. Once that is done the appropriate treatment can be recommended.
