Hi,
Heartburn is the classic symptom of GERD.
But it can cause chest pain too which may radiate to arm and back.

I have had acid reflux for 10 years and a double dose of prilosec usually would take care of it but just recently i started having chest pains and arm pains like i was having a heart attack. i went to a new doctor and they pricked my finger and ran a test that took 5 mins. she said i had H.pylori which is a bacterial infection of the esophagus. thats something you could tell your doctor to check you for and if thats the case then they  put you on some antibiotics.
