Make diet changes: You may have gastric reflux disease, esophagitis, gastritis or gastric ulcer, gallbladder disease or another condition. Eating too close to bedtime? Eating very large meals? Eating gas-producing or reflux-producing foods? Correcting these issues would be a good place to start. SE your clinician for exam of symptoms persist or get worse. ...Read more

Causes of deep burning sensation in right side of chest and right upper back/middle back? On and off, don't last long. Don't think it's heartburn

Causes of deep burning sensation in right side of chest and right upper back/middle back? On and off, don't last long. Don't think it's heartburn

Needs to be watched: In your age group, the most common causes are musculoskeletal problems that usually self-resolve. Esophageal spasm can cause deep middle pain. Acid reflux is also a possibility despite taking tums (calcium carbonate). Young women who are smokers and are taking oral contraceptive pills are at risk for lung blood clot that can cause chest pain. Heart issues need always to be ruled out but are unlikely at your age. ...Read more

Pain: Upper chest and back pain intermittently recurring after eating suggests gastronesophageal reflux. Gastritis or stomach ulcer are considerations. This could be triggered by long term use of NSAID (ibuprofen). Other more serious conditions may present this way. It would be wise to see a physician to have a proper history and perform an examination to determine what testing might be necessary. ...Read more

Cervical spine: Burning that travels can be due to nerve irritation, spine irritation, and brain irritation such as migraine or seizure. New onset burning should be evaluated by a doctor. The pinky is innervated in the ulnar nerve territory, coming from c8 of the cervical spine, and traveling up to the left thalamus and then left parietal cortex. ...Read more
