Hi there ....

These are the symptoms of GERD and acid reflux back and cause inflammation and pain .

You should get strong PPI ( Proton pump inhibitors ) Cap Omeprazole 40 mg at bed time for 6 weeks and plan for endoscopy please .

Highly unlikely the heart issue .

So get endoscopy and start treatment please .

Regards ***** ***** luck .

Please leave positive feedback for me .
