I am a 20 year old female. I have had problems with acid reflux since I was a child. I take Prevacid twice daily, as well as Tums but I still get heartburn. A week ago, I noticed I suddenly started sweating excessively. I felt weak and groggy. This persisted throughout the week until a couple days ago. I felt a sudden stabbing pain in my sternum and left rib cage, and a pain radiating throughout my chest (tums didn't help). It went away about 30 minutes later. Since then I've been feeling extremely weak and fatigued. (I also have an anxiety disorder so I tend to dwell on health related things). I woke up at around 5 am this morning sweating and clutching my chest due to a burning/pressure feeling, again, on the left side. Could it be possible that I've suffered a heart attack? Or does this sound like heart burn? I've had all sorts of tests within the last 6 months such as ECG, stress test, chest X-ray, and holter monitors which all came back negative for heart disease. I have been rather sedentary for the last 2 months and my diet has been very poor.
