Hi, I'm still waiting for the call. Can you please let me know when the doc would call. Thanks

I tried to call twice but not going through --getting error message unfortunately.

Based on your symptoms, this can still be severe acid reflux.

You can try another tablet of pantoprazole for relief.

Please drink plenty of fluids and eat bland diet only like rice, soup, toast.

The burning is concentrated on the left of my chest since 5 pm today. So a bit concerned.

I also took an Eno now. Did not relieve the burning even a bit.

Without shortness of breath or exertional symptoms, heart disease unlikely at your age.

You should go to the hospital in that case
