Tight chest and sharp pain

I have this tight pain in my chest that comes only when I swallow and when I' m about to burp/ release some air. This is very painful. Should I be worried about this

Dear Gugu

Thank you for visiting health24.com.

I suggest that you consult a gastroenterologist to have a gastroscopy done, to exclude a possible gastric ulcer. In the interim, I recommend that you use Gaviscon Advanced, thrice daily before meals.

Kind regards
