Our expert says:
Richard, I can’t say for sure without being able to examine you first, but it sounds like it might be due to gastro-oesophageal reflux (acid moving up into the oesophagus). Next time it happens you can take Zantac® effervescent and if it does the same, it is probably acid related. If you’re interested in something I wrote on the “other than heart” causes of chest pain you’re welcome to mail me at CyberDoc@mweb.co.za. Good luck
