Doctor

A:   Hi.
Thanks for your query.

Yes, certainly you should be concerned. Pain in the upper abdomen should be taken seriously, EKG for the heart to be done immediately.
If normal then go for upper GI Endoscopy.
Get started on PPI, Antacids, domperidone.
Keep away from stress and anxiety.
Soft bland diet.
No aerated drinks
No smoking and drinking alcohol.
Consult Gastroentrologist.

Hope this helps you. All the best.
