Acid Reflux Questions

Can acid reflux make you hurt in the heart area?

Dec 3, 2016

In people with acid reflux, the excess stomach acid can slosh back into the esophagus resulting in chest pain or what we sometimes think of as pain in the heart. This pain maybe mistaken for a heart attack too. Often, the pain can be intense. We recommend you consult your medical practitioner if you are experiencing pain in the chest.
