 I do have coronary artery spasm which I take a low dose of Norvasc for and I have palpitaions. However my cardiologist also thinks I have GERDS. about a year or so ago he said my chest pains was from that and I took protonix for about 8 months. Then I started having problems and went off of it. I did not have any chest pains and stayed off of it. The protonix always made me burp ALOT more and started giving me others problems. So I did not want to go back on it. Then the cardiologist discovered the spasms. Well I am having alot of chest pain again and set up for an endoscopy next Thursday.
 
My concerns are some other symptoms I have started having recently. I am wondering if they are all GERDS related or some heart related. I do get the feeling of food being stuck in my throat which I have never had before. I have lots of chest pain-not in the center of my chest-usually off to the left side. It feels alot lately like it is in the rib area going up through the underneath side of my breast, lots of back pain. A couple episodes of where it seemed hard to breath but I has not active.
 
 I had one tonight but it was about 2 hours after dinner. I felt as if It were hard to breath. Then my stomach started to hurt. Then I got a warm feeling in my abdomin and chest area. I felt really strange for a couple of minutes and my heart rate shot up to 120 but only for a minute or two. Then I got that feeling of food stuck in my chest and let out a couple of forceful burps. Can that all be GERDS related because to tell you the truth it scared me!?! In the short time it took to happen I had already decided I was ready to go to the ER to check it out. However it all ended in less than 5 minutes total and I feel fine now? Has anyone experienced this? I would really like to hear anyone's advice or thoughts on this!!!!!

OK-so no one else experiences shortness of breath, pain in their stomach and a warm, tingly feeling in their abdomin and chest prior to the feeling of food being stuck in their throat and the burps coming on!! Guess I'll call my cardiologist in the morning. Thanks for the replies!!

Hopes, it sounds to me like it is just gerds and not your heart. I hope so anyway. I have heaart trouble and have never experienced those symptoms. But Im glad your going to a cardiologist to be sure. I also have gerds from my meds I take for my heart. I dont have it as bad as you I dont think, but I do have some of the symptoms you desribed. Keep us informed about the cardio. Doc. I hope everything comes back ok. Take Care!

Thanks for your replies. I'm thinking it is more GERDS or reflux stuff now too and I'm not so scared anymore. I'll have my endoscopy on Thursday and will talk to the GI about it.
