... "discomfort" in the upper chest as if the capsule had exploded
Sometimes, if a pill is not taken with enough water to get it all the way down, it will begin to "melt" or dissolve in the lower esophagus and can cause burning or pain in the chest area as the medication irritates the esophageal lining. Be sure to drink a full glass of water (or more) to be sure that your pill goes all the way down into the stomach. If a pill feels "stuck", sometimes it helps to eat a piece of bread to get it all the way down.
