Chest Pains after taking vitamins

I have very uncomfortable chest pain right after taking my daily vitamins that last for a half an hour or longer. Is this normal? If not what should I do?

Are you drinking enough water when you take the vitamins?

I have a feeling that the pills might be getting stuck somehwere in the esophageal tract...try drinking at least 12 oz. of water and see if the chest pain still exists.

You might also try to take your multivitamin in liquid form! It's delivered quickly to the system...
