For the past month and a half I have felt a burning sensation in my chest right between my breasts. It used to come and go, but has become more regular and normally it is fairly easy to ignorable, but lately it has become worse. Could it possibly be GERD? Should I get this checked out?
The answer is yes, you need to get this checked out as any discomfort in the chest should be investigated. In the meantime, before you are seen, do a trial of over the counter Prilosec daily, which addresses esophageal reflux symptoms, and if you have a response (or lack of response) to that, it is helpful diagnostic information.
