Yes, u could have heartburn without any other symptom. When u have anxiety like I experienced I also had fast heart rate, very nervous, felt like passing out, fast heart beats. All these symtoms can go away. Don't be nervous. Go see your doctor. tell him about these symptoms and let him prescribe a anti-anxiety pill. I was on ativan, took it every nite, help me to get to sleep and felt so much better during the day. If you are having heartburn, this too might be alievated with meds and you need to watch your diet. I'm on a very plain diet and still have heartburn, sometimes it's just nerves.

I was suffering with that symptom more last year than this year. I went on Ativan, anti-anxiety meds and that took care of the fast heart rate. I know it's hard to do , but try to relax and exercize as much as possible, even if you just walk around the block, it does help.

I can relate, as I have anxiety as well as GERD problems. You will be in my prayers. God bless.
