In brief: Heart or not....

Go to your doctor, even if it isn't your heart it needs to be checked, it can be severe reflux, that untreated can lead to esophagus cancer.
Your body is telling you something is not normal. Obviously weight loss and better eating habits are important, but go get checked out now. Your doctor can help you find out what is wrong, treat you, and help get you on the right track!
