Acid Reflux

Hey guys. I'm wondering if this is Acid reflux, anxiety, or heart issues. I've been having this burning/ shortness of breath for about a little over a week. I don't remember if I felt this before but my primary care physician doesn't want to give me a referral to a cardiologist. Anybody up here had or has heart issues?

I have acid reflux and tachycardia (fast heart rate) AND anxiety. It's hard to tell them all apart. Take a chewable tablet for the reflux and see if it helps. Then if that doesn't work, I meditate or play a game and I also go to therapy. If you are young they won't send you straight to a cardiologist because it's unlikely it's your heart. But since I have the tachycardia I see one and he always says it's my reflux.

Acid reflux and heart burn have no links to your heart. Anxiety and stress however can cause all of the symptoms you have mentioned. Best to see your doctor though but accept his diagnosis and move on. 😃

Your having acid reflux . I’m having the exact same thing it’s horrible and feels exactly like a heart attack . Take Pepcid ac or something to help with the acid reflux . Avoid spicy and fatty foods and eat small meals during the day . I noticed when I over eat in one setting my breathing gets worse . Take care !
