tammy,

The first 4 or 5 upper body symptoms can be linked directly to your cervical spine impinging on a nerve bundle (even the heart rate change when you bend a certain way.) Many of the mid-body complaints can be tied to the Reflux and gastic and esophageal inflammation.

But since they can also point to the heart area, I'd say have an ECG at your earliest convenience. I don't think there's a need for a run to the E/R though.
An aspirin a day even WITH the gastritis is probably STILL a good idea til you get to the doctor...maybe WITH Maalox?

I hope you are on a proton pump inhibitor (Nexium, Aciphex) or at least Zantac or Tagamet...no need to walk around with reflux burn!
