My chest has been bothering me for a few days. It feels like pressure on my sternum. Thought it was indigestion but antacids & burping haven't helped. ?

In brief: Need cardiac eval.

Although these symptoms are most often due to indigestion, a cardiac source should always be ruled out.
Evaluation and treatment by a gastroenterologist should only be performed after a cardiac evaluation is normal.
