Hi, thank you for reaching out to us.

We understand your concern regarding the heartburn. However, this is our general impression on why you have such symptoms.

Regarding your statement, the reason why do you feel heartburn especially when you eat spicy food is because spicy food can trigger acid reflux into the esophagus which cause you to have heartburn.

Other causes why you can feel heartburn is due to:

  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
  • Inflammation of your chest bone (costochondritis)
  • Heart attack

Don’t wait until you get the symptom. Take care of your heart starting NOW.

Chest pain can be a symptom of heart disease. Get a cardiologist to weigh in on your symptoms today

If you have any more doubts, you can contact us at (DoctorOnCall) to have clearer explanation by our doctors. Thank you.
