I am a 25 year old male, who weighs 240 lbs, and I am 5.10 feet tall. Tonight I had what I think was acid reflux or heartburn. I was not sure about it, as I have never had it. I felt like something is stuck in my throat, and also I felt a chest congestion when I tried to cough. I was reading online about the symptoms of GERD but also started reading about heart attack symptoms. I did not have any noticeable chest pains, but after reading about how people have a feeling of uneasiness, I had a weird feeling rush over my body for a brief second or two that felt like pins and needles and numbness, then I came back to normal. Is this a sign of anxiety, hypochondriasis, or a heart attack?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Thanks for your query. Let go of your anxiety.
Gastroesophageal reflux disease is 80 % corrected by simple diet and lifestyle modifications. So, I would suggest you try the following.
Your symptoms could also be due to multivitamin deficiency, especially, vitamin B12 deficiency.
Hope this helps.
