Hi many with gerd feel like this...and many with heart issues think it is gerd,but u were checked and given a clean bill of heart health...so try to relax and find a way to eliminate those pains....u can get better from gastritis....which will resolve those "heart" pains.

U also may want to have ur thyroid checked as it can cause heart palps too.....if u feel u have more going on than ur gerd....but many conditions can feel like something else.....and u had the right tests to check ur heart.
