Doubt heart disease: You appear to have had all your symptoms checked by er or physician. While i understand your concern over mom's heart disease, i see no good reason for continued worry. Best to be positive and proactive about your own health. Give up tobacco, eat well, exercise and watch your weight. You might want doc to check for gerd and if worry persists, see a psychologist for help. Good luck.
