Thank you

may I know your age and please elaborate more your chest pain.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I am 26 years old.
So my chest pain started as a pressure and also some times a feeling of burning.

Do you feel acidity ? any previous lungs/heart disease?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I had only pneumonia about 5-6 years ago. Yes I would say acidity but more on my throat.

I stayed home for a week and I went back to work where all the doors were opened and it started again. Tuesday a cough started but it's mild and only few times during the day. I cough a bit more at nights.

Thank you for your reply. If chest pain is burning in nature, then most probbaly it is because of GERD (acid reflux). I would recommend you to try Gaviscon

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
what about the pressure that I feel? What can cause Gerd?

and observe if you develop any breathing problem, fever or severity in cough, in that case you would need doctor examination.
