It would be unusual, however the heart rate you describe might be an irregular heart rhythm triggering the chest discomfort. Talk with you doctor about an evaluation with a GI specialist and possibly a heart monitor. ...Read more

Persistent tightness in my chest with partial discomfort & experiencing slight burning sensation.Could this be reflux related or heart.Non-smoker 24yo?

Doctor can evaluate: If it is reflux (heartburn), one can try antacids like Maalox, Mylanta, or Tums. There are also acid-blocking medications like Pepcid (famotidine). But, such symptoms may be other things instead of simple reflux. The patient could have esophagitis, H. pylori infection, heart or lung disease, anxiety, etc... It's best to have a doctor evaluate, and if it's only heartburn, the doctor can offer acid blockers. ...Read more

What is the relationship between burning sensation of toes fingers and ischemic heart disease?

What is the relationship between burning sensation of toes fingers and ischemic heart disease?

Not aware of any: "burning" is a symptom most commonly associated with a nerve. Carpal and tarsal tunnel (nerve compression), neuritis (inflammation) and some metabolic diseases (like diabetes and anemia) can also produce a burning feeling.

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. ...Read more

I've had pressure/ discomfort in my chest for 2 days now. Burning sensation and pain in my right breast. Could it be heart related?

Burning sensation in upper abd. and sometimes chest with certain foods(ie. tea or tim hortons breakfast wrap). My dr thinks it heart burn. Right?

More than likely: Your doctor is probably correct. Heartburn can be caused by different things for different people. Heartburn is the reflux of caustic gastric juice back up to the esophagus. How far this juice refluxes often determines what symptoms are produced. You can alleviate the pain by watching what you eat and when you eat it. Spend time with your doctor and get answers to all the questions you may have. ...Read more
