for the last few days i've been experiencing this burning in the center of my chest when I eat or drink. It lingers for a bit and then goes away. Sometimes during the course of the day it comes and goes but felt mostly when eating.

I have tried antacids but am going to start taking pepcid for more relief. Tums only works right away then it comes back. It is the worst in the morning when i wake up and if pepcid doesnt help the doctor i go

Hi there and welcome! You may very well be experiencing acid reflux or heartburn. Have you tried antiacids to see if they have any effect?
