In brief: Esophagus

GERD causes heartburn and sour eructations but spasm of the esophagus is what causes upper midback discomfort as well as pain in the front of the chest.
Prilosec type medications relieve the acid reflux symptoms, but an esophageal spasm may be helped by drinking a glass of water. A gastroenterologist is best qualified to advise you about these symptoms.
