Acid Reflux or Heart Attack?
It was horriable, took a bite of a cheese stick, serving pizza to my family, got an intense burning from my throat to the middle of my chest. My jaws were hurting both sides, my ears were burning, had discomfort in my chest & felt sick to my stomach, Lost my appetite. Layed down, took my tenormin (for heart flutters), a rolaid & 1/2 zanax. Felt better w/ in a half hour or so, but my jaws & ears were still in distress. Went to the Drs. the next day, felt whiped out, missed work & still had discomfort in my chest like I couldn’t relax my chest, like a little burning. Dr. thinks it was an Acid Reflux attack. I didn’t let him take an EKG. Didn’t want to know those results. Has this happend to anyone before? Dr. gave me Prevacid & helps a lot! Also, felt a pinching in right had between my thumb & first finger.

I think it’s nothing to worry about and wouldn’t second guess your physician’s explanation of GERD. Also think you are a hypochondriac; in that, the majority of your questions and answers here are concerning your health problems. Maybe you need an increase in your alprazolam to help relieve your health-related anxieties.

i think it is gastric acid reflux . but it is better to have a ECG taken to make sure u dun have heart attack better to find out early rather then letting the problem get serious

take care and get well soon

there is no link between what happens in the esophagus region and the heart and the intense burning sensation can only occur in the food pipe or the stomach area so don’t you worry . but get a echo cardiograph done for your heart in case that problem may be there too
