Gerd is very painful and for me mimics what I feel to be a heart attack. Are you on any medication? If not I would seriously suggest you see your doc.

Re: chest pain ..gerd...reflux heart pain

You need a good gastroenterologist to sort out your reflux problems. It can take a while to find the right medication. It's all a bit of a vicious circle really- you are stressing about the pain/discomfort of what sounds like uncontrolled GERD symptoms, & the stress itself is almost certainly making your symptoms worse.

I have found there are two things that have helped me a lot with GERD symptoms at night. I don't eat or drink anything during the evening. I have dinner & that's it! The other thing is I find it very helpful to lie on my left side in bed- eases things a lot!

If your symptoms continue then perhaps you should have your heart thoroughly checked out- for your peace of mind. Best of luck & do let us know how you go!

I would ask your dr. about medicine for GERD!!! It is wonderful and makes such a difference in such a short time. Also now alot of them are available otc, so you don't need a dr to give it a test drive!!! Feel better soon!
