I am not sure what is going on, if eat certain kinds of beans, bananas or minstastroni(sp) soup I get upper chest pains. The only thing I can think of is these all contain fibre.

Can anybody think what this may be? It could be indisgestion I suppose but why don't I get it if I eat burger and chips for example?

Upper chest = where your stomach is.
People often think it's heart things when it's really just your tummy. Can't really give you any more info than it's a stomach thing rather than anything to do with your heart/lungs/chest etc

I think I know why

Sorry, totally not helpful at all.

Erm... try an antacid? If that doesn't work, then go to the doctor's, or perhaps try a pharmacist first

Sometimes when I eat something (haven't really noticed any specific foods that cause it) I get this feeling of tightness in my upper chest..like pressure I guess. It kind of feels like I can't breathe although I can. It lasts for about 30seconds or so I guess. The only cause that I can come up is eating too fast but I'm not sure. Anyway, I don't know if that's what you're experiencing or not..but it sounds somewhat similiar at least and an explanation would be nice.

I thought this was a joke thread after I saw: "eating fire sources" in the title.

I'd visit you doctor if I were you. It's possible that because these foods are quite soft and easy to swallow, you're not chewing them enough before swallowing them and you're getting indigestion as a result. You could always try an antacid (as Talya suggested) like Rennies or Gaviscon which are available over the counter.

If it goes away as a result, it might still be an idea to mention it to your doctor, just to see if they have any suggestions for you. They also might be able to give you a prescription to an antacid, which'll probably work out cheaper than over the counter medication.

Good luck! I hope you feel better.
