Health.com: 9 Serious Conditions That Mimic Heartburn

Stomach Ulcer

Ulcers can cause a gnawing, burning sensation, usually felt in the upper abdomen. The pain can find its way up to the chest, Dr. Madanick says.

Acid-suppressing medications may relieve ulcer pain. But ulcers are usually caused byHelicobacter pylori, a type of bacteria that inflames the stomach lining, so you will need to take antibiotics to clear the infection.

Certain anti-inflammatory drugs (such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen), and osteoporosis drugs called bisphosphonates, can also cause stomach ulcers.
