Sorry to hear about this

Does it happens only on eating food?

I am 33 years old
I sometimes have silent reflux and was having lansoprazole 3 weeks ago and then I stopped it when I felt better.
I had quite abit of hot food yesterday when I went out for a meal. I was having my lunch earlier when it kept hurting. It’s fine when I am not eating but sometimes feels warm. No other conditions

Thanks for the details

This is most likely gastritis (inflammation of stomach)

You should continue to take Lansoprazole

Also you should have a test for H.Pylori as this is a bug which can be associated with such symptoms

You can add Gaviscon to Lansoprazole for pain relief as well
