rain10 posted:
I have diagnosied with GERD. I get sharp pain in my chest and I don't know if it's my GERD acting up. I some time have gone to the er because it gets bad and then the doctors tell me to go to my GI doctor and they tell me it's not nothing. I also have aortic dissection and don't know if bothering me. Sometime the middle of my back get sharp pain which goes to the middle of my chest.

I also have Gerds along with Barrett's and to top it off a small hiatal hernia lucky me anyways my doctor told me that Gerds can produce pain which feel like its in the chest but in act is in your esophagus. Then proceeds to tell me that your esophagus run right behind your heart which is why it's called heartburn and pain from Gerds can mimic some signs of heart pain the only way to know is to get a full checkup on your heart IE stress test ,EKG, Echocardiogram which let me tell you even after having all those does not ease your mind that it is not your heart Gaviscon can help somedays Good luck your not only
