A 25-year-old male asked:
Disclaimer

I believe had esophogitis pain in the middle of my chest. Every so often like when getting up out of my chair I'll feel it more like a sudden pressure. Don't want to go to ER. Dr Google says longer than 3 minutes go to ER. Does it mean constant 3 min?

See doctor: At your age and based on your history, anxiety may be the issue. However it is best for you to consult your doctor. If you have risk factors for heart disease (diabetes, strong family history, high lipid, hypertension etc) , then an ER visit would be prudent.

Probably yes: but why suffer? Try anti acids, acid blockers or PPI (proton pump inhibitors) all of them over the counter in USA
