A 29-year-old member asked:

Could pain from acid reflux be confused with heart pain?

Sure: The pain is frequently very similar.Many patients make the mistake of assuming chest pain is gastrointestinal with serious complications. Heart pain can be burning, associated with belching, and even at times related to eating, so do not assume your pain is gastrointestinal. Get it checked out. I remember a cardiologist who had "heartburn" and assumed it was GI when in reality it was a heart pain.

Probably: Everyones response to foods is different. There is nothing intrinsic in the foods which make them prohibited. I would use your body as a guide to if and how much you can eat of these or other foods.

I agree. Caffeine does make reflux worse.

Basal cell cancer: Basal cell cancer, the second most common skin cancer, is very slow growing. Depending on the location, on how perceptive and how educated one is about these, it could be there for 1-2 years before drawing attention.
