Question; is this true acid reflux or just occasional heartburn?

I have had what I call acid reflux attacks maybe 5x in my adult life.  I am 42 year old woman. 
I had one attack in Feb at night after eating at a Benihana restaurant. had lots of sauces.  Anyway that attack was pretty uncomfortable.  feld like I had pressure in my throat, almost like I felt the presence of the acid.  no regurgitation.  The following day was much better and bu the next day symptoms were gone.
Well I had another attack this Monday night.  Ate a lean cuisine asian dish and then had 1/2 bag of Smart Puffs, then went right to bed.  I know this is not very smart btw.  2 hrs later I woke up out of a sound sleep with the same symptoms that I had last time, maybe slightly worse.  The next day was better but I still had symptoms and was very uncomfortable.  Had pain in my chest when I ate and even when I took deep breaths.  not terrible pain but like a soreness.  Now today, I am almost better.  still have slightly but much much better
I know I should go to the Dr but before I do, does anyone have any ideas as to what is going on with me??

Sounds like heartburn to me, but still get checked out by doctor to be safe.

Thank You so much.  I assume then for an "acid reflux diagnosis" these attacks would have to be more consistent.
