Dear,

I can understand your concern.

Well, such pain in right side of chest could be related with- acid reflux disease and gastritis.

This is causing burning pain in right side of chest.

Excess secretion of gastric acid is causing burning sensation.

Take Syp. Pepto-Bismol 2tsf thrice a day after meals. Take Zantac 150mg twice a day. Both of these are OTC drugs.

You need to make some dietary changes along with medications. Avoid chocolate fatty foods, coffee, and alcoholic beverages.Avoid beans, cabbage, and carbonated beverages.

If you are overweight,loose some weight.

You should avoid smoking.

You should always drink up to eight glasses of water a day.

You should remain away from stress and anxiety. Start practicing Yoga and meditation. Deep breathing exercises and relaxation techniques will be helpful.

You should avoid these-

beans, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, sprouts, onions and garlic .

Usually with these tips, in 1-2 weeks you will be free from symptoms.

Hope this helped
