Acid reflux : If your chest is hurting from acid reflux, you need to avoid foods that seem to make it worse. Typical offenders are tomatoes, onions, citrus, Mint, chocolate, alcohol, and tobacco. However , you will know what is the worst for yourself. Take over-the-counter antacids, but if this does not help after a few weeks, see your gastroenterologist. Good luck.
