is this a symptom of gerd

i have recently started to get a heavy feeling on my chest, as tho someone is sitting on me. it dosn't last long but i wondered if it was a symptom of gerd.
i also get a lot of pain in my upper chest that can move into my shoulders. my right side is usually worse then my left.
i have had my heart checked and that was fine.

does anyone else with gerd get these symptoms.

many thanks

Re: is this a symptom of gerd

many things are associated with chest pain/burning. it's usually hard to tell, but that's part of GERD symptons.
