In brief: Heartburn

Heartburn most likely, but be very careful, this could also be more serious! always be careful of "chest" pain.
If you're over 40 and usually eating heavy foods and drinking lots of alcohol (more than 2 shots worth a day) you better get your heart checked! but heartburn when bad can be very serious too. It can lead to ulcers or other serious stomach problems.

In brief: Reflux

It's probably reflux disease or gerd.
But get your heart checked out to make sure it's not something more serious.
