For last month felt like something stuck in throat every once in a while also burped up throw up I thought never made a big deal of it. Sunday out of blue had pain in chest got real dizzy and had tingling in arms and legs . Thought I was having heart attack. Went to er EKG norm bp a little high they found nothing wrong withme. Doing research I must have gerd. Started taking Prilosec and already feel better. I have no family history of heart probs or acid reflux or gerd. I'm 35 and have always been healthy. This was a very scary moment for me but I'm sure I have gerd. Had the acid in mouth and felt lump in throat not very often so I blew it off. I don't want to ever feel that again with the cest pains and dizziness. Anyone else felt this stuff

Welcome to Healing Well.

Reflux can irritate the vagus nerve. This nerve branches out and has to do with digestion, heart, and other areas of the body.

Take care,

Welcome and I am sorry you had this scary experience.  From our own resources thread in this forum you may want to do a little reading:
Also I would suggest you make an appointment with a GI physician to obtain a positive dx as you may have experienced something else.
Keep on talking to us.
