I'm a 27 year old female, I have read up a lot on gerd and esophagitis, I haven't found much on if it can cause chest pain and symptom's of a heart problem? I have dizziness, and have almost fainted. The doctors seem to think my heart is fine, I have had many ekgs, all normal had a ct chest scan, was normal. it sometimes gets worse when I walk around ( especially in the heat). I had a heart monitor put on me last week, don't know that results yet, but I'm sure they'll tell me its normal. Any experience's or ideas of what might cause this? sad I feel like the doctors just understand how much it has affected my day to day life, its very scary. thank you in advance for your response.

cmarie, yes gerd can mimic heart problems. Good to see so far the heart is checking out ok. Have you seen a gi dr for the gerd? I would say get back in to your dr & let him/her know what is going on, makes me think the gerd is not under good control.

Take care.
