Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Any other symptoms?

Do you take any medication?

Heart attack at your age very unlikely without any prior history of heart disease.

Bad anxiety can cause such feelings.

I take citilaprm for depression and omeprazole for heart burn I've had increase heart burn and felt dizzy and sick
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 1 year ago.

Ok --heart burn is the likely cause in your case.

Omeprazole dose can be increased to twice daily.

Also liquid antacid maalox can be taken 3 times daily to help with heart burn.

Not likely concerning.

I have acid reflux anyway do u not think it is my heart what could be the cause I am really worried but is it my anxiety making it feel worse
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 1 year ago.

Anxiety makes your esophageal spasms worse --that feels like heart attack nothing else.

It is not your heart-- I can assure you.
