In brief: Unlikely at your age

Autonomic neuropathy is rare.
Chest pain between gerd and heart disease can give autonomic symptoms such as light headedness, shortness of breath. Diabetes, valvular heart disease and brain disorders must be considered. See a neurologist and sleep medicine doctor for testing and treatment.
