Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board


Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index


[QUOTE=justsomeguy2004;2806048]I'm sure this question comes up a lot, but I gotta ask anyway. I'm a 21 year old male who everyday suffers from chest pain. (I plan to go to the doctor this week). About a year or 2 ago I was very scared that it was a heart problem, so the doctor had done an echocardiogram on me, and some other test involving suction cups on my torso. Appparently they said that all was well. Even so, I can't help but feel something is wrong. When I go to the doctor I'll ask for a test confirming it's Acid Reflux, or not, but for now I believe it is, the symtoms are there anyway. I find it odd though that everytime I eat a big meal, my heart seems to beat a lot faster very soon after, and without putting my hand to my chest, I can feel my own heartbeat, its rather scary. The chest pain isn't only in the middle though, but anywhere between both armpits, and it's not usually a dull burning pain, but a sharp piercing pain, like something is pinching me from the inside. Is that normal for Acid Reflux or not? Even considering that, my heart is healthy enough apparently to allow me to run 1-2 miles every night, so I don't kno what to think. It's on my mind every day for hours, and it's stressing me out a lot! I'm in a constant state of fear that I'll have a heart attack at any time.[/QUOTE]

Im 18, I have reflux and I get sharp pains in my chest, usually the left side. Sometimes it feels like heart pain, it can be anywhere. But most of the time its like right where my heart is. When I eat a big meal my heart races too and I get alot of palpitations. I really dont think its your heart, its reflux. Ever since my reflux started is when I got these symptoms. I hope you I made you feel a little better. Take care. Kelli
