Hi,
Thanks for providing additional information.
I understand your concern and it's my pleasure to help you in every aspect.

As per your description,most likely you may suffer from Gastroesophageal reflux.

And your anxiety regarding heart attack acts an aggravating factor.

So you shouldn't worry about heart attack as chances are very low.

You should take OTC Zantac and Gas -X.

Also drink plenty of water.

Avoid spicy,fried diet and alcohol,smoking,caffeinated drinks.

You should elevate your head with an extra pillow while sleeping.

Deep breathing can be helpful.

If your symptoms 'll not improve then consult your doctor for a clinical exam.

Hi,
It's due to gastroesophageal reflux which can cause acid to come back in esophagus and throat resulting in choking,altered taste in mouth,heaviness in chest,heartburn,nausea.
You should try such self care remedies which provide you good results.
And consult your doctor for a clinical exam.

Hi,
I understand your worry.
However it's not related to heart and you should try such remedies and see your doctor in next few days for a clinical exam.
EKG can be done for a precautionary measure.
Hope this helps.
