  3. In parallel, schedule a consultation narrow specialists: ENT, endocrinologist, neurologist to rule out other diseases with similar symptoms.
  4. It will not hurt to do an electrocardiogram — heartburn often hides the damage to the heart, and chest x-rays or the lungs with a burning retrosternal pain need to make a minimum the study of light.
