Heartburn, anxiety, or worst?

I was sitting in my night class today and I suddenly started getting these pains in the center of my chest. They would come in 2 second waves about every minute or so. They seem to have stopped but there is a bit of tightness in my chest, and Im burping a lot.

So am I worrying about nothing? Or should I maybe see someone?

Oh also, the pains started to come back some when I was eating dinner after class. They seem to have calm down a bit thought besides the tightness.

Re: Heartburn, anxiety, or worst?

e11a,

Go out and buy some OTC Zantac and take 150 mg every day for a week or so...even cheaper, chew 4 Tums. If it's heartburn, the pain will go away. It sounds like heartburn/GERD to me.
If it does go away, maybe daily Prilosec is the answer (also OTC) but Zantac is faster and thus works better as a test!
