Hi Dr. Feinberg, you are always so helpful to me. I have a burning sensation about where my breast bone is and it carries upwards to my throat. Do you think this could be pneumonia? Occasionally I also feel this this in my mid back, and my upper abdominin. Thanks for your help, you're the greatest.
Response from Dr. Feinberg
Thank you. It sounds like you may have reflux esophagitis (too much stomach acid) or esphagitis from some other cause, such as candida or herpes. I suggest you see your doctor for an evaluation. Good luck!
