Re: chest pain and pain when swallowing
Do you think it could be heart burn or dyspepsia? In heartburn there is a burning sensation in the chest- often just behind the breastbone . The pain often rises in the chest and may radiate to the neck, throat or angle of the jaw.
Heartburn is usually associated with regurgitation of gastric acid (gastric reflux) which is the major symptom of GERD. the chest pain caused by GERD has a distinct 'burning' sensation, occurs after eating or at night, and worsens when a person lies down or bends over. heartburn or chest pain after eating or drinking and combined with difficulty swalowing may indicate esophagal spasms.
This is just a suggestion about what you might possibly be experiencing. If in fact it is something like this, you may need to take medicine. Good luck
