Patient: My mom is 70yo. And for last month she has a burning pain in her upper spine more on left side and around the whole chest. She feels like her whole thoracic area , throat, mouth are on fire and even when she breath she feels that she exhale fire like a dragon. Pain killers barely help. She went to ER twice and possible tests for cardiac and GI were done. Everything shows negative. But she still in discomfort and pain. What else u think it can be. Please help my mommy.
