| | Heart problems or GERD?
Hi, I'm 16 years old and a male. I am about 100 pounds overweight, but have a large body frame. I have GERD, that has gone untreated for about 3 years. So I'm wondering, is it my weight causing my problems or my GERD? Am I in a dangerous position to have these heart issues or are they not really heart issues.
Let me say what happens, sometimes when I try to sleep, I feel like I'm slipping into unconsciousness, and it feels like my heart skips or stops and then starts again. Totally crazy I know, but it's keeping me awake and scared and I don't know what to do.
I've started eating healthier and exercising, but I'm worried it's too late.
I'm really scared guys, any help would be appreciated!
