burning chest pain while falling asleep

hey guys,

im a 28 year old male who has trouble falling asleep. this, i believe, is directly related to being a recovering alcoholic who self medicated with booze to sleep at night.

Im clean now, but I have a terrible time falling asleep at night. right when i am about to fall asleep, i get an awful pain in my chest and I wake up yelping. I've been to the dr., who has informed me she thinks it's GERD, and told me to take Prilosec on a daily basis in order to control my gas. It didnt really work. She also told me that I may have some anxiety disorder that keeps me from sleeping comfortably at night and offered to prescribe an SSRI.

I work out on pretty much a daily basis, hour of cardio, hour of lifting about 4 hours before bedtime. At first this helped me sleep, but even that isnt assisting anymore.

I've done so much research online, its crazy. I cant seem to find any info pertaining to my symptoms. I hope its not life-threatening. Its gotten to the point where I am so uncomfortable that I feel like drinking again just to sleep. Anyone have any advice?
