first i wanna apologize for my English as it's not my main language.
Here's the story:
I'm male, 25 years old, smoking pack a day and drinking beer few times a week.
One year ago i started getting chest pains (more as a pressure) in middle or left side. I also get dizzy and get feeling of impending doom.
Last year i was 3-4 times at ER and every time they did ECG and blood work and everything is OK. They told me it's definitely not my heart and it's probably muscles.
After that i had endoscopy and they told me that i have gastritis, GERD and hiatal hernia and i started to drink pantoprazole for few months but it didn't help so i stopped. Here and there ranitidine helps.
Few weeks ago i started to have left arm and jaw tightness and heart palpations (mainly when i lie down in bed) that scared me like hell. It's happening 90% when i'm at rest.
I'm worried that i have problems with my heart and that i'm gonna get heart attack. Is it possible that GERD mimics all those symptoms? What should i do next? When i drink 5 beers, all symptoms disappear until next day.
