It's an ongoing burning pain. Is this normal ? I'm scared that what I'm feeling is a warning sign for a heart attack ? I've felt the burning and chest pain a little when I went to the er and now I've been feeling an ongoing sensation since I've been discharge frim hospital
Cardiologist: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 3 months ago

Burning feeling is likely due to acid reflux / esophagitis.

With your investigations being normal, heart issue is ruled out.
