Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. The first possibility that is to be ruled out is a cardiac cause like angina or myocardial infarction.
Get an EKG and ECHO along with the cardiac enzymes like Trop T or CK-MB done from a physician to rule it out and these should be done urgently. Once cardiac status is clear, we can think of other possibilities also.
Hiatus hernia can produce a reflux of the acid into the food pipe resulting in the burning pain. As he has got COPD, thereâs always a possibility of an infection in the lung along with associated pleuritis resulting in the pain.
Please consult a physician for the same. I sincerely hope this helps. Take care.
