Probably need rx chg: Probably need an increase in gerd rx or a change . You do have a few risk factors for heart disease and should be worked up as well.

See a cardiologist: Symptoms of gerd can be similar to angina which is pain due to blockage of arteries of heart & it may require further work up including a stress test.
