Last night I was eating and my chest starting hurting and I started coughing and belching really badly. Could it be due to acid reflux?
Thanks for your question. All of the symptoms you described are common symptoms of GERD. You should talk to your doctor to find out if this is actually the case.
There are several lifestyle or dietary changes one can make to help prevent GERD symptoms. You can read a good list of them here.
