Although I have never had an official diagnosis, I assume my frequent bouts of heartburn are caused by acid reflux. I also suffer from pains in my chest whenever my heart rate increases (exercise, anxiety, etc.) I was tested for heart problems a couple of years ago, even had an angiogram and was assured that "my heart was functioning as God intended". So, I have wondered lately if the pain can be related to my reflux/heartburn issues. Is it possible that damage to the esophagus could cause these symptoms? The pain lasts a very short time, but is quite intense initially.
