Dyspepsia: The symptom you are having is likely dyspepsia. It may be ulcer related or due to esophagitis or gastritis or may be non ulcer dyspepsia. Please see a physician. Also advise not to stay off foods for non medical reasons for long periods of time.

I've had a fluttering or rushing feeling or right side below rib lately. Today, I have burning or a cramping feeling in sternum. Gallbladder problem?

I've had a fluttering or rushing feeling or right side below rib lately. Today, I have burning or a cramping feeling in sternum. Gallbladder problem?

Gallbladder pain: Typical pain form the gallbladder occurs in the abdomen below the right ribs in the front and sometimes below the breast bone. It radiates to the back. Worse about 30-60' after eating, especially with fatty foods. Crampy in nature, variable severity. See your primary care provider of a more complete evaluation. Not everyone is typical. Hope this helps!

Consider this...: If you're indicating your epigastrium (just below the ribs in the midline), then you may have peptic disease (e.g. ulcer, gerd, reflux) or contractions or delayed emptying of the gut in that location (stomach, mid-colon). Less likely (& appropriate to symptom duration, intensity, timing, risks) your gallbladder or pancreas may be sick. Best to get checked.

Pain: It sounds like pain all over. Unfortunately, this is not enough to direct you to a diagnosis. Either you will need to provide more data about your condition or you will need to see a local doc for that.

Reflux: Often prilosec has to be taken twice a day to control reflux symptoms. Alcohol,caffeine and nicotine may override the medication. Also, oily and greasy foods can produce reflux. Nexium or protonix may be more effective for this flare up. A gastroenterologist is best qualified to evaluate and treat you if your symptoms aren't controlled or the cause or diagnosis is in question.

Reflux: Could be acid reflux. Try to avoid eating anything (or drinking any protein shakes) 2 hours before bedtime. See if that helps, if not then see your doctor for further evaluation.

Having burning feeling in chest and can't keep down food and water for three days. Thoughts?

Having burning feeling in chest and can't keep down food and water for three days. Thoughts?

SERIOUS: Get seen! when you say: 'can't keep down water' , this will lead to dehydration, so this is a serious situation. You may have an esophageal (food pipe) obstruction due to stricture (scar) or tumor. The chest burning suggests esophagitits (esophageal inflammation) which can be caused by acid reflux or yeast infection (candida). You may need scope (egd) & acid blocker (ppi) hope you get well soon!

Hello IV been having a burning feeling on the left side of my chest when i cough and it feels like a pulling pain as well just asking lower addom ?

Burning chest pain: Chest pain can be a symptom from the lungs like pneumonia or asthma or from the esophagus like from acid reflux. It's also possible to be related to a heart condition. Sometimes abdominal pain can be "referred" pain from the lower lobes of the lungs. Chest x-ray could be a useful tool for evaluation. Good idea to see your doctor.

Can lupus make you have a burning sensation feeling in chest?

See details: If you are talking about heartburn, it is much more likely due to medications than to the underlying disease.

Hi its to my wife she is suffering from chest burning and had pain in neck and not feeling wel since four days why its so?

Hi its to my wife she is suffering from chest burning and had pain in neck and not feeling wel since four days why its so?

Get checked: She needs to get checked to see if this is a heart problem or esophagitis. If the neck pain is in front, it's likely part of the same problem as the chest pain. If neck pain is in the back, it may be an unrelated problem. If the pain is just on one side or the other, it could be she is developing shingles.

Why is it that sometimes when I have gavicson it gives me a burning feeling in my chest?

Acid = Burning: I doubt the gaviscon is causing the burning. Reflux of acid is most likely leading to irritation and inflamed esophageal tissue. If you want to try another antacid it may be time to experiment with the other products out there. If you have pain while on antacids you need to see a gastroenterologist urgently.

GERD: Gastroesophageal irritation due to acid coming up your esophagus. This may also cause swallowing difficulties. May want to see your doc.

Burning chest: This may represent reflux from your stomach. However since you are a smoker, you warrant an exam and CXR. If all is OK your doctor may put you on a pill for stomach acid. All the best.
