Re: why is it hard to burp sometimes then you get a sensation in my chest

I have this too. I get this more often when i am driving home from work. I suspect sitting in my car compresses my stomach upwards into my chest. I feel this gas pressure build up and my normal efforts to burp is completely immobilized, as if i no longer have control of the mechanisms to allow me to burp. As the pressure builds, i experience a painful feeling in and around my left side near my sternum. I try to pin point where it comes from but it happens so fast. Sometimes it is much more severe and i feel like i am experiencing a heart attack. But the pain last for less then a second and only occurs once for each event. Within seconds i can start to burp, relieving the pressure and any residual pain. I have look up esophageal spasm and i suspect that is what it is. My other theory is a hiatal hernia.
