In brief: GI and chest pain
Often GI problems can mimic the symptoms of heart disease.
The stomach and esophagus are next to the heart so pain from either of these areas can be similar to that from cardiac causes. Patients are sometimes admitted for evaluation of the pain and found to have inflammation of the stomach or esophagus. If you have these symptoms you should follow with your physician.
