I have had an on going problem for a few years now. Ive had 3 different stress tests. The last as recent as a weeks ago with what i call a "heart scan". Nothing was found. Ive had a Cardiac Cath which was clear and had 2 EGDs done. The last one showed a slight hiatal hernia. My worry is i get pain in my left jaw and want to know if anyone else has this or if it can be related to GERD. I take protonix twice a day and Tranxene for anxiety. Also Ive had my gall bladder removed almost 3 years ago. HELP PLEASE!!!

Hi vikfan,
Welcome to Healing Well! Sorry to hear you're struggling.  I can remember times when I had a bad reflux episode and I'd feel it in my jaw.  I think it's pretty common with a full-blown reflux response.  I expect that it varies from person to person, but it's definitely something I've experienced. 
It's a good thing that you've followed up with heart workups, as you don't want to assume anything. I have definitely had reflux feel just like the symptoms described in heart attack.  Better safe than sorry, though!  It's always best to follow up the way you did.  Way to go!
Good luck,
