Dr. David :

the pain most likely is either from acid reflux or from anxiety or panic attacks.

Dr. David :

acid reflux of acid up the stomach into the esophagus can cause severe chest pain.

Dr. David :

severe anxiety and panic attacks can cause severe chest pain.

Dr. David :

it doesn't sound like you have tried any antacid medications to help calm down stomach acid.

Dr. David :

I'll be back in 20 minutes.

JACUSTOMER-a7pbpydn- :

I do suffer with heartburn now & again but I have not had heartburn since the pain started can this pain be caused by acid when I haven't got heartburn

Dr. David :

yes, the chest pain can be caused by acid reflux, even when you don't have heartburn.

Dr. David :

have you had your stomach acid issues treated?
