    Acid reflux would be a burning sensation, gas would be a pain but both could be relieved temporarily with an anti gas & acid reducer. The pain could also be something concerning your heart so best to go see your MD soon. I know your heart is a little higher but pain is in different area on different people.

    It sounds like gas to me (I get similar pains). Try some yogurt for prevention and see if it improves. Warm baths can help gas pass. Acid reflux is a possibility (see for full symptoms to see if it fits.)

    Reflux can present in a number of ways. Learn how to cure your heartburn

    The most common symptoms include burning in your chest or regurgitation of food or saliva. Other symptoms include a feeling of something in your throat (called globus), chronic cough, throat clearing, indigestion or an upset stomach, or chest pain that feels like a heart attack.

    Pinched muscles in the back often send pains around the body on the nerves to become pains in the rib, chest or heart areas. They can also press against the nerves for your stomach which would make you gassy. to get rid of these problems you have to free up your back muscles and here's how to do that:


    (do from a sitting position)

    Place your left hand on your left leg next to your body. Place your right hand over your left shoulder, fingers over the back and the palm in the front and firmly pull down on them and hold. After 30 seconds slowly lower your body forward and to the outside of your left leg, keeping your left arm fairly straight as you do. When you reach your lap remain there for another 10 seconds, release the pressure but rest there for another 30 seconds. Then reverse your hand positions and do your right side.

    For best results relax your body first by taking a deep breath and exhaling then remain this relaxed.
