Why is burning always in same location ? When do i consider endocopy?

The location is not constant & can vary.

If you feel worsening of your symptoms, you can think of endoscopy.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
