I have been under incredible amounts of stress since March 1st and in that time span some pretty strange things have been happening.
I'm going to spare a lot of the details from the personal issues and go straight to my heart episodes. Now, I'm pretty sure I have GERD from seeing the symptoms and that has been on and off. I get this feeling in my throat that I'm either going to choke or go into full panic mode ALL the time now, which in turn gives me the same kind of feeling in my lungs. Almost as if I'm going to pass out, everything just feels full and congested most of the time, doubled with the fact that I am a mouth/heavy breather this has caused great anxiety. Until recently, I haven't been able to eat a meal without taking a 2 to 3 Tums afterwards. While I sleep, I'm not sure if it's panic, stress or apnea, I wake up with adrenaline rushes or mini attacks and also if I lay on my sides it feels as if my heart is stopping. I have no clue what this is and I really don't have the funds to get checked up im in so much debt. Is any of this common with Gerd or Acid Reflux? More frequently I am starting to get these weird rushes as if I'm having a heart attack or a panic attack which either leads to me having to belch or not belch at all. If any of you have any of the same symptoms, stories or solutions please feel free to speak on it. I am a 25 year old male by the way.
