Hi, am asking for my dad (late 50s man). He experience an uncomfortable feeling (he describes it as got air) and had been experiencing this for 5 weeks. He says he burps a lot and feels gassy. He also ‘feel’ hungry when he is experiencing the uncomfort. Its in the area around his chest to his stomach area.

Is there something that he should be concerned about?
