Caution!!: Hi Member012 You're right, it could be GERD...and if so, a H2 antagonist (like Zantac) or a Proton Pump Inhibitor (Like Pravacid) or plain old Mylanta 30 min after meals could help. But symptoms of low blood flow to the heart, particularly in women, don't always involve pain, and even at your age I would see a practitioner to discuss symptoms and further testing.

ER check: Never ignore chest pressure or pain- althought this could be your heart, it could also be a sign of gallbladder or gastric issues.

Just Gerd?: If your having chest pressure and shortness of breath you need to be sure it's not your heart. This is less likely at your age, especially since you are not a smoker, but I suggest you call your physician and tell him/her your symptoms. If your symptoms are from reflux they should improve by following the advice about reflux here> SEE: http:/bit.ly/ZquHBK
