Allopurinol and mild heartburn

I’ve been suffering from gout for about six years. I started Allopurinol a month and a half ago and have had two very painful attacks in that time (I’m in the middle of one now.) and a short mild one.

A few days ago I started to feel a slight sense of heartburn in the middle of my chest and a weird feeling in my throat – like it’s slightly constricted or there is something in the back of it. This is accompanied by frequent minor belching.

It’s been constant for three days now, more uncomfortable when I eat, and it doesn’t seem to be going away.

Has anyone else had this happen?

If so does it go away?
