  Hi, yes this is a common sensation...the vagus nerve could be involved or it is just GERD by itself....

Have u been to the Dr? Modified ur diet and lifestyle?Not all with GERD/reflux have heratburn., but will have these other sensations that r a good indication that it may be GERD...look to family history, rule out heart issues....and get treatment..let untreated this can cause u a lot of issues.

Yes I've had 3 EKG one chest X-ray an some blood work that was all done by a cardiologist, I've been dealing with this for a year now. But it seems like its getting worse.. Sometime I think it's anxiety..

  Did u have an endoscopy? Just wondering what else may have been ruled out....

Glad u had ur heart checked already....still could be the vagus nerve and GERD...

The vagus nerve could add to anxiety too if it is compromised.

  Regardless of who RX'd the testing a cardio Dr was involved and u were checked that is the most important thing.....

Now check out the other issues and go from there...u may want to go to a GI Dr for the next round of testing.

Ok, so even I didn't see a cardiologist, your saying a cardio Dr looked at my test? Because I didn't see a cardio dr. Just my regular dr, she's not a cardiologist..

  Usually a cardio Dr administers the testing or reviews the results and writes up the report...I am sure ur Dr did not do the testing...many GP's do not have the equipment to do that.....
