Gas pressure in my chest

How do I know for sure that it is gas? My chest feels tight and the pain gets bad at night and a couple of times it hurts all the way through to my back.

Re: Gas pressure in my chest

Sounds like acid reflux to me--try not to eat to soon before bedtime. Watch what you eat, try to avoid real spicy foods or foods that contain alot of acid. There are alot of over the counter antacids. Pepcid AC comes to mind. Try this for a couple of weeks to see if it helps, if not than you should seek a professional medical opinion. I would start with your primary care doctor.

Hope this helps

Re: Gas pressure in my chest

Just got back from the Dr. and I have to go back next week for some test but she thinks it may be my gallbladder. At least it is not my heart!!
Thanks for the help.
