    My doctor says my heartwaves are "beautiful", but there are times that it feels like my heart is skipping out of my chest. She says I have gerd. Is this irregular "spasm" something to do with that?

    I just recently went to the ER for chest pains that turned out to be GERD. If your heart has been checked, it is likely caused by reflux. BUT, you should follow your "gut" when it comes to your health. If you're really not satisfied with your doctor's advice, there is nothing wrong with getting a second opinion.

    Also, do a web search for GERD and heart topics. This helped me a lot.
