Sounds like reflux. Because it seems like "heart pain" it can increase anxiety then the anxiety makes the reflux worse.

I don't know you beliefs about medication, but you can take an antacid and see if that helps.

It could be either acid reflux or anxiety or a combination of both.  The problem is that when we have anxiety it tends to increase the acid reflux issue which then causes more anxiety.  It becomes a vicious cycle where they both feed one another.  I also agree with Lara that maybe trying some antacids could be helpful.  Start with something mild like chewables.  If they help, then that will help find your answer.  I know my acid reflux gets worse when I lay down as well.  Good luck.

It's not what's in front of us that stops us.  It's what's inside that holds us back.

Reading your post explained a question I always had - when I take a Pepcid I don't feel as anxious!  (and I don't worry about acid reflux so it's not like it makes it go away and I stop worrying about it, I actually get more relaxed overall - I guess it all DOES tie in!)

Sound like acid reflux, which has a tendency to get worse when one is stressed out, you're fine  :spineyes:
