I have daily chest pain that last all day long. If i don't eat, if I do eat.. It doesn't matter. Is this nornal for gerd?

Possible: Does not sound like cardiac pain. Not unusual for gerd symptoms to act like this. An easy test is to simply take an over the counter medication for gerd like prilosec. If symptoms improve that may be it. I would still recommend you also see a physician to further evaluate your symptoms to make sure a more serious problem is not causing your problems. ...Read more

Chest : Chest pain and palpitations (rapid heart rate) are definitely things to be concerned about. You may be dealing with a heart arrythmia (irregular rhythm), thyroid disorder, anxiety or panic disorder etc. The pain is worrisome because it could be a sign of cardiac ischemia, which means you are not getting enough oxygen to your heart. On the other hand, it could be something as simple as muscle pain. Regardless, the only way to find out is by having a complete medical evaluation by your primary care provider. Lastly, if the pain becomes intense, and/or you experience shortness of breath and your heart racing, present to the er. All the best. ...Read more
