He usually stops what he is doing takes a drink of water or as in the case of the last two episodes some ant acid tablets(Over the counter-Rennie) and Paracetamol 1g with no effect. On further questioning he indicates that the pain does not radiate. He doesn`t have any pain in his stomach or symptoms of heartburn.
