34 M echo stress reached 99% target HR. Have mild acid reflux. Can't get it off my mind that it is heartburn and not heart attack. Feeling helpless!!

In brief: Acid reflux

Heart burn is a symptom of acid reflux.
A normal echo stress study would rule heavily against a heart attack or ischemia. Discuss your feeling of helplessness with your doctor, you should be able to get help through discussion of your situation and perhaps treatment of your symptoms.
