Low risk: At age 24 you are at lower risk for heart-related disease. That being said, it is always advisable to have a complete evaluation done any time you have chest pain to be sure your heart function is completely normal. GERD can certainly cause the symptoms you describe but I would go to an urgent care or your doctor to be sure that is what you are dealing with.
