Chest pain can be caused due to various causes. Some conditions that can cause chest pain include:
Coronary heart disease GERD / acid reflux disease Pulmonary infection Chronic anemia Rheumatic heart disease Gallstones Heart valve disorders From the situation you are experiencing, one of the causes that may cause chest pain is acid reflux disease. Acid reflux or GERD is a condition where there is an increase in stomach acid into the throat. GERD often occurs in people who are overweight, have a history of alcohol consumption, and lie down frequently after eating. GERD can cause symptoms such as chest pain, heartburn, tightness, heartburn, nausea. But gastric acid disease CANNOT BE DETECTED FROM REFLECTION MASSAGE.
But the chest pain you experience can also be caused by coronary heart disease where there is disruption in blood flow to the heart muscle.
