In brief: See below.
Possible tests are endoscopy and biopsy.
Some chest pain may warrant an EKG (cardiogram) to rule out heart disease. Possible labwork, looking for the cause or consequences can include a blood count, electrolyte levels, pancreatic enzymes. A test for H. Pylori, should be considered, since this bacteria can cause symptoms and can be treated.
