Burning Senaation above rib cage

For the last 3/4 weeks I have been experiencing a burning come acidic sensation above my rib cage, centrally in my upper chestI Seems to be when I drink water but  not solely then.  I also experience a tightening of the upper chest intermittently although this has been for a longer period of time than the burning feeling.

  Hi and welcome to the GERD forum.

You will want to see a GI Dr and review your diet and lifestyle with them to see what changes you could make to help with this issue.

If it is in fact reflux your Dr should suggest you avoid alcohol as it is a trigger, as is caffeine and carbonated bevs. Then look to foods....and even if you are stressed as that too is a trigger.
