Does this sound like GERD?
I originally attributed these symptoms to a lower back strain, but now I wondering if this has something to do with GERD.
I have been having the following symptoms off and on:
1. Aches and pains in the upper chest
3. Tightness in the chest--almost asthmatic, but not bad enough for that
4. A feeling like a cold is coming on, but it never arrives.
A few weeks ago, I drank a big glass of Metamucil. 10 minutes later it felt like I was having a heart attack--a burning pain in the upper chest. Then it happened again tonight. Big glass of Metamucil followed by chest pain. I drank some milk and walked around, a symptoms gradually subsided.
Does this sound like GERD? I am 39.
