I woke up from sleeping about 2 and half hours ago and I was having bad acid reflux, I have taken a few doses of Gaviscon and I took one Zantac but the symptoms are still there, every time I swallow I feel like something is just sitting there and it burns a little, I have burped a few times, is this a heart attack?? Why won't this go away? I have had this a few times in the past
Expert:  Dr. Abid replied 10 months ago.

Why when I drink the milk or water now does it hurt and then it will feel a little better but It feels like something is just sitting there and every time I swallow it's horrible, it almost feels like bad post nasal drip but it's like either food or I don't know what, what is going on with me?

HelloI am a double board certified US doctor.The symptoms you have would not be typical heart pain.But, if you have that concern, it can not be ruled out on line. You need an exam and EKG.Your acid reflux is much more likely, but you can have more than one problem at a time. We can not tell you that you don't have a heart problem, which can present as pain that is atypical and anxiety.In addition, you should be evaluated by a doctor immediately, as your reflux pain is not responding to prescribed treatment.Additional information: esophageal stricture can cause this felling. Barium swallow needed.Esophageal spasm, also can cause pain that does not get better and needs a calcium channel blocker.So, ER or urgent care, exam, EKG. Immediately.I am a double board certified US doctor.;Dr. Thomas.Find me any day of the week by request for safe, correct and up to date answers.Please click a positive only on this answer page if you want me to be compensated by just answer.Contact customer service if you have any problems.LEt me know if you have more questions.
