What may cause belching and burning behind breast bone?

What may cause belching and burning behind breast bone?

Reflux: These symptoms are most likely due to gastro-esophageal reflux, or gerd/heart burn. I would discuss your symptoms with your provider.

Bone (Definition)

Bone is a living growing tissue made mostly of collagen (protein that provides soft framework) & the mineral calcium phosphate that adds strength & hardens the framework. Two types of bone are found in the body; cortical (dense compact outer layer) & trabecular (makes up inner layer, ...Read more

HiI have pain under my left breast bone which I would descibe as a burning sensation. I also feel I have to burp a lot and feel nauseous at times.

Maybe stomach reflux: This might be stomach acid reflux into the esophagus creating the pain. See a MD as at 32 it is unlikely that it is cardiac related unless you had a problem from birth. (congenital)

Diet: Start with eliminating caffeine and any alcohol/tobacco/drug use. If symptoms continue, try eliminating fried/greasy food, fatty meats, acidic fruits. Antacids can be helpful but if symptoms persist, see your doctor.

I have pain below breast bone along with nausea belching and gas after eating but not just greasy fatty foods. Doc says ibs. Thinking gallblader issues?

Gallbladder Pain: Is the pain on the right side below your ribs? If so, your symptoms may be caused by your gallbladder. You should visit your doctor for a detailed history and physical exam and consideration of an abdominal ultrasound to look for gallstones.

My stomach swells bad, I have bad nausea and acid reflux with a bad taste in my mouth, belching, gas and pain in upper right under rib &breast bone.

Gallbladder: Bloating, nausea, and right upper quadrant pain are all suggestive of gallbladder disease. An ultrasound of the gallbladder and/or a HIDA scan will show if you have this. See your PCP for the testing. You should also be tested for H. pylori, the cause of most ulcers. You may need referral to a gastroenterologist or general surgeon.

Yes: Tenderizer rib cage breastbone can be costochondritis and inflammation. Any chest pain should be evaluated in person by physician more than 30 minutes or severe requires immediate medical attention

I've been having sharp and burning pain right under my left breast in breast bone. Heart or something else?

Sharp pain: Sharp pain is very unlikely the heart. It is usually the ribs, or small costochondral joints. Sometimes the lungs mag cause such pain or the pain may be referred from the gut. The breast muscles also should be considered.

Suddenly woken from my sleep with nausea and pressure just below the breast bone and felt like I was burning up. No fever?

Suddenly woken from my sleep with nausea and pressure just below the breast bone and felt like I was burning up. No fever?

This is worrisome: If by "burning up" you mean heartburn, then it's probably just reflux esophagitis/ GERD and you can see checklists for managing that. However, no chest pain should be taken lightly especially if you have risk factors for heart disease or family history of early heart disease. If it keeps up and doesn't respond to head elevation and antacids, you should get a medical evaluation.

Heart disease: The symptom may or may not be heart burn. You need to see a doctor for history/physical and any other evaluation needed to determine what you are feeling.

I have been told I am anemic (hgb 10)and am on iron. I have a burning pain under my breast bone above my belly button. Could the iron be causing this?

I have been told I am anemic (hgb 10)and am on iron. I have a burning pain under my breast bone above my belly button. Could the iron be causing this?

Very unlikely: You need to see your provider to evaluate this (new?) pain symptom. It will be very unlikely to be related in any way to either the anemia or the iron supplement. But do find out and ask about the possible effects of any treatment. It will improve your response and relieve your worries. Best wishes.

Getting over cold, this AM I had burning/pain center of stomach (no gallB & gastric bypass) now I have dull/sharp pain on right side below breast bone?

Getting over cold, this AM I had burning/pain center of stomach (no gallB & gastric bypass) now I have dull/sharp pain on right side below breast bone?

Right sided pain: Pain in that area of the abdomen can occur with gall bladder or pancreatic disorders, gastritis or peptic ulcer. Liver origin would be unlikely. Consult a physician if symptom persists, recurs, or if associated abdominal tenderness, nausea, vomiting or bowel irregularities occur.

Gnawing/burning feeling below breast bone after eat a light meal. No fever, lack of appetite, decrease urination. I'm always eating peppermint altoids?

Gnawing/burning feeling below breast bone after eat a light meal. No fever, lack of appetite, decrease urination. I'm always eating peppermint altoids?

Gastritis: Sounds like you have gastritis - an inflammation of the lining of the stomach caused my stomach acid. The decreased urination is probably due to you eating and drinking less because of the pain. See your primary care doctor or a gastroenterologist for additional work up. Ps - the peppermint altoids aren't helping you.

I get burning sensation in the middle of the breast bone area under the rib cage when I drink or eat certain things. Heart burn or stomach ulcer?

I get burning sensation in the middle of the breast bone area under the rib cage when I drink or eat certain things. Heart burn or stomach ulcer?

Several things: This should be evaluated by your primary doctor (and possibly gastroenterologist). This could be ulcer, viral infection, fungal infection, bacterial infection, or allergic inflammation. Your doctor may just start you on medications or may decide you need to have an endoscopy (where a camera is placed into your mouth and down into your stomach).
