Reflux: This could be reflux, but it doesn't sound like it to me. Relaxing won't make reflux go away. Maybe you have a muscle spasm? I would ask your doctor about this.

Yes & more serious 2: Untreated gerd can lead 2 many symptoms & also lead 2 serious & some fatal consequences.

Yes.: It can do that. One way to confirm whether that is the cause would be to take over the counter Famotidine twice a day for 3 days, and see if the symptoms resolve.
