Red face Heart Pains After Eating

Hi, Im 18 years old and only recently I've been having these heart pains, if thats what they even are. About 5 months ago, I was eating pretty badly (greasy foods) and i noticed my chest starting to hurt, and it was usually relieved by burping. I went to my doctor and she said a change of diet and lifestlye would fix the problem, i guess she thought it was acid reflux? Well now its back and i'm very worried, I have an appointement, but not for 3 weeks. Its a weird pain in the left side of my chest, it hurts all the time, and i usually get a lot of gas (burping). I have once again tried changing my eating habbits but it hasnt gotten any better. Please help...I'm really concerned.

Sounds like your doctor was right. You probably have bad indigestion or GURD as they call it. If burping is relieving the pain, then it is most probably not heart related.

Your stomach can do a lot of stuff that makes your chest hurt, especially if it's kicking up acid into your esophagus. A lot of anxiety is caused by people mistaking so called 'heart burn' for heart problems.

Stay calm until your next appointment and ask a lot of questions. Make sure you're satisfied with the answers.
