This same feeling can happen when you have what is called gastric reflux. There are some good over the counter remedies that just changed from prescription only. One is called Prilosec. You might want to try that and see if it helps.

If you have any concern that this is cardiac related, you really need to seek medical treatment sooner than later.

Your doctor can help you with the reflux as well.
