Stomach issue: Stomach is on upper left side of abdomen. If you eat too fast, or swallow a lot of air, or have a hiatal hernia or reflux any of those could cause a feeling of fullness in the left chest. Try eating more slowly, & possibly could take Pepcid (famotidine) 10 or 20 Mg prior to a meal to see if helps. If not or if worsens or you have nausea or vomiting or shortness of breath call Dr
