Thank you for your questions. First and foremost, we truly understand your concerns regarding your symptoms and other health problems you might be facing.

To answer your question, burning sensation on your stomach can be due to

  • Gastroesophageal reflux (GERD)
  • Gastritis
  • Heart attack
  • Muscle pain
  • Costochondirits

If your problem is due to GERD, my advice apart from taking medication would

  • Avoid food that you noticed would trigger the symptoms
  • Eat in smaller amount but frequent
  • Do not lie down right after meal
  • Lifestyle modification - stop smoking, maintain ideal weight

However, if the symptoms persist despite that on top of taking medication, I would suggest you to visit the doctor again.

This is just a general answer to your question. To know in details we greatly suggest that you refer this to your nearest medical doctor.

We assure you that our conversations are kept in confidentiality unless additional consultation needed with other medical parties. Thank you.
