Basically the pain I’m getting is a really intense burning pain like as if it’s acid . My throat my stomach and every think connecting to it feels burning . The signs looks towards two things I think which could be (gerd) or something with anet... ! Something .

Thanks a lot for your input. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want. This is due to acid reflux. Taking Ibuprofen causes irritation of the stomach and causes this burning sensation. I would suggest you to start with over the counter available capsule Omeprazole 20 mg twice daily for 2 weeks and hopefully, you are going to be alright. Avoid tea, coffee, alcohol, and spicy foods. Don't worry, I reassure you that there is nothing serious and you are going to be alright. I wish you good luck and that you get well soon. My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done. You can come back here to ask anything even after you have rated the answer. I will be glad to help you always. A 5-star rating is requested and will be appreciated. Regards

Okay so would this sitiuation wake me up at night and not let me sleep ? . And also in the last few days I had a numb spot in my left foot just before my toes , the 2 next to the big toe , Is this part of it ?
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
My stomach feels a lot burnish to day . And first time last night i brought up burning stuff to the back of my throat ?.
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Hello , Dr hasan you there ?

The numb spot is not related to your chest feeling. The numb toe is likely to be due to nerve compression.

You should take syrup Gaviscon 2 tablespoons thrice daily for 3 days and Omeprazole 20 mg twice daily for 2 weeks and you will see a lot of improvement.
