GERD and jaw pain

I've read that if you have GERD, you can sometimes feel some pain in your jaw. This has happened to me several times. I get that feeling behind my breastbone and a few minutes later, it seems to radiate to my jaw. Anybody else ever feel this as well?
I have no other symptoms when this happens...............no heart attack symptoms.
Thanks so much

Hi...I also get jaw pain, but I have other health concerns that may be part of it...I can never be sure.

I wonder if ur vagus nerve is somehow being affected....causing this pain to radiate?

There is also a condition called silent reflux where u do not feel heartburn type symptoms...could be what u r experiencing?

Thanks so much for your response, selma. I didn't think about the vagus nerve being a possibility and I'd never heard of the condition you called "silent reflux."

I was just incredibly relieved you didn't immediately say "run to your cardiologst as it might be a heart attack!" That is what I was fearing someone would say. Jaw pain in women is a fairly common symptom of a heart attack, but I've had this pain quite a few times and I just didn't think a person could have THAT many heart attacks!

I also have other health issues, so perhpas they may be connected with this, but one of my "issues" has to do with my heart................hence my fear.

But, the bottom line is that I am so terribly relieved to know that someone has this as well. Not that I'm happy YOU do, but you know what I mean!

Again, thanks for your reply!
Warmly,
Linda
