Sorry to bother you all but I’m in a right state of panic I’ve had anxiety for a few days now and last night I went to Tesco and I got the biggest sharp burning pain in my chest it went into my throat , jaw and in between my shoulder blades I’m scared out of my wits it’s a heart attack I’m getting the pain now right side and down my arm. Just waiting for a call back from the drs surgery I’m wondering if acid reflux or heartburn does this or am I having a heart attack I’m so frightened someone help me xx

Hi, I'm an EMT, and you're going to be okay!

Do you have a history of heart problems?

Try and take a few deep breaths and have a glass of water, I promise you won't feel like this forever.

My chest hurts during panic attacks or crises. Heartburn can feel like chest pain. Is there anyone with you?

Edit: What you're feeling is real and valid. Don't think my response substitutes medical care, which you deserve. You're not a burden.

That is what my intense acid reflux flares feel like. I have found breathing exercises very helpful. It feels so overwhelming in the moment. I hope you found some comfort today.

Hope so hun I’ve had another bout of pain but just took some paracetamol so hopefully should settle down xx

Even though it’s most likely anxiety related it’s always a good idea to talk to your doctor. I hope they call you back. That’s a pain.

Well I didn’t get my call back today I was on a emergency call as well it’s terrible service xx

in reply to Natsteveo

I have the same issue with my doctor. It’s ridiculous. I hope you feel better soon girl.

Heartburn is a sign of our bodies being too acidic so having alkaline foods will help, I have half a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda in water every morning

Black stools are not usually serious , I hope your anxiety has settled down Nat

in reply to Natsteveo

That could be to do with your iron levels which a simple blood test can sort out.

Protonix is a great med for GERD, which it sounds like what you have.

HEY N,there is something called ANGINA which mimics a heart attack/i have had it around 10 times/i would just wait it out and not call ems services here in the U.S.////im also sufffering with an acid reflux type reaction to beer and soda pop/i may suggest you find a gastroenterologist for your stomach and other issues like i have/i hope this may be of some help///////////////
