How can you differentiate pericarditis symptoms from just severe heartburn? Bad chest pain left side, worse when laying down and breathing in.

In brief: Cardiologist

I would recommend for you to go to a cardiologist.
He will probably get an EKG and depending on its findings recommend particular managements. Interestingly enough the treatment for pericarditis would worsen gastritis since it is basically NSAIDS. Good Luck C
