Yes that would be me. Except my heavy chest is just chest pain and I have little to no heartburn. I have Ectopic Arrythmia's. I was on Atenlol. And I also have been diagnosed after an upper GI test with GERD. Have you had any tests to confirm if you have GERD? I think that would be very important. It is also important with your symptoms that you visit with a cardiologist and rule out Heart disease. I have done this and now when I have chest pain and arrythmia's I have peace of mind that my heart is OK it is just the GERD acting up. You would be foolish not to go both to a Cardiologist as well as a GI specialist. You need to know for your health as well as your peace of mind.
