I've been having some odd symptoms lately that I just attributed to GERD. Besides the chest pain, I have trouble breathing and heart palapitaions. Other non GERD symptoms like headaches and blurry vision I blamed on skipping breakfast. The cold hands and feet I just blamed on bad insulation in my house. I'm only 22 so I never though I might have a heart problem. I'm not really sure about how serious mitral valve prolapse is. The doctor didn't really explain it. He seemed much more concerned about the slight bulge in my aorta. He gave me a prescription for a drug called Nitrobid and another for Zanex (he things I'm high strung or something). He also told me to keep getting ECG's to make sure the bulge doest't get bigger and said I should consider fixing the hernia so that my thorax isn't so crowded. I'm a little confused about this whole situation. I told my father who said that this could be really serious. I pretty freaked out right now....help....
