You will have to consult your doctor, as it is possible that you might have gastric reflux disease or a gastric ulcer. Your doctor will also have to consider a cardiovascular reason for your symptoms and will have to perform tests to exclude heart pathology. A benign condition, like costo-chondritis (inflammation between the ribcage and the sternum) can also be a cause for your symptoms.
