Unsure: Left sided chest pain can have several causes, some very serious. With burping, uncontrolled acid reflux is high on the list. What did your Barium swallow show? If the omeprazole hasn't helped, you are due for endoscopy. Also, make sure H pylori is ruled out and you avoid nsaids. Other possibilities are heart/heart lining problems, lung inflammation, chest wall musc/connective tis pain etc ...Read more

Can G. E reflux cause pain in chest on left side? I have chest pain on left side while making movement & whatever I eat or drink burps start.wht it is?

On the other hand, burping with meals means you're swallowing air ("aerophagia") which can be a symptom of irritation in your GI tract or just of stress. So, you have more than one issue going on, sir. ...Read more

Not likely heart: Most common causes of chest pain in your age bracket are gastroesphageal reflux or musculoskeletal pain. Belching common symptom of gerd. Can cause change in appetite or difficulty swallowing? Further workup of pain can include upper gastrointestinal series, endoscopy of esophagus and stomach, etc. Most time GERD helped with proper medications. Heart can cause pain, but in your case ruled out. ...Read more

8 months of symptoms: It's time to see your doctor if you've had these symptoms that long! While I could speculate on some of your symptoms, a more complete history and definitely a physical exam are needed.
The sour tasted, burning in chest/stomach, and nausea (feeling sick) could be many things (i.e. reflux, hiatal hernia etc) and your doctor can help figure it out. Good luck! ...Read more
