Possibly?: A bubbling sensation in left chest area could be related to GERD but it's not typical. This type of complaint is highly unlikely to be caused by any serious condition. I think if you reassure yourself and stop paying attention to it it will just go away. It's natural to be concerned when you experience a new bodily sensation, but in this case you can relax.
