GERD or Heart Problem?

Hi
I am 42, diabetic and statrted feeling "tightness in chest" while walking. It was feeling of "soar throat" and "burning in eosophagus upto throat". Also felt that heartbeat is fast. Being diabetic got worried and immediately saw a Dr. My ECG, heartbeat, pulse and BP was all normal. Dr diagosed that it was acid reflux, oesophagitis and put me on Omeprazole (2+0+2) and domperidone(1+1+1). Initially i also had problem in lying down. But now it got better but chest tihtness and that soar throat thing still happens after 300 to 400 steps of walk. Mentioned itto Dr but he says will get better and it was not a heart problem. But i dont feel satisfied despite the fact that Dr was a really highly qualified one. Any advice or suggestion? Eagerly waiting.

Re: GERD or Heart Problem?

Hi, I'm going through the same thing worrying that what I have is a heart issue being over weight this became my first concern when my chest started hurting my doctor also insist that it's not my heart but that doesn't take the fear away because when I was diagnosed with GERD I was already being treated for anemia I'm so scared that they are wrong it seems like everyday I get new different symptoms. so I hope this lets you know you are not alone. Just take one day at a time is all I can say hope you feel better.

Re: GERD or Heart Problem?

Thanks Sparkletee. Since how long you are experiencing this. Is GERD curable?

No,There is not a cure they say you have to just change your diet and lifestyle but that's taking a while to show some signs that its working. Good luck
