I seem to have had reflux for years, but the burning symptom is often missing. but recently it's been getting worse. I thought I was having a heart attack one time and I sometimes feel there's heart palpitations. there's also pain left and right in my chest and stomach pain. Normal?

      Did the pain stop after that and what symptoms did you have

      GERD can cause all kinds of strange and uncomfortable sensations. I've had the same issues for a while but tests on my heart have also come back fine. If you get really concerned though don't hesitate to go to the ER. It's better to be safe than sorry.

        @Nightshxde for a while I had funny breathing, butaybeninwas thinking about each breath too much. Lansoprazole seemed to help

      I've been experiencing the same thing! Does the pain also spread into your back/shoulders and sometimes jaw/neck? it's really unpleasant, I usually just take ibuprofen and tums at the same time and lay in bed w heating pad till it fades

        @talulla I don't take painkillers because I'm scared of missing vital pain. Still not sure it isn't my heart, although I've had two ekg tests. Sometimes chest pain is sharp and in a small area and it can be close to or nowhere near a mealtime. Bizarre.

Yes, it is possible to have GERD with varying symptoms. Some people experience acid reflux without heartburn. However, if your symptoms are getting worse and you're experiencing chest pain and heart palpitations, it's important to consult a doctor for proper evaluation and treatment.
