I'm Dr Chaithanya, experienced General Physician attending you today.
Based on the symptoms you provided, I want you to get these two tests done immediately.
1. Endoscopy to rule out any abnormality in esophagus
2. Chest x-ray to rule out any untoward happening to the lungs as you are a smoker
This kind of sensation is not to be ignored; please meet a surgeon or gastroenterologist or your physician who can advise you the following tests.
Based on the test reports, the treatment can be further advised.
Please feel free to ask if any further questions. If done for now, please leave a positive rating
