acid reflux?

I ended up in the ER yesterday with such awful chest pain I thought I was having a heart attack.  After a normal EKG, chest x-ray, and bloodwork, the doc decided I must have some acid reflux... he thinks it is a result of being on an antibiotic for 2 weeks for a sinus infection, and also I'd been taking a lot of Ibuprofen and Excedrin for headaches.   I started Prevacid, but not much relief yet.  I'm not convinced yet that reflux is really  the problem.  Can you have acid reflux and chest pain up into your neck be the only symptom?  I dont have any stomach discomfort, or feel like anything iscoming up in my throat or anything.  It seems wierd to me.  And the chest discomfort is pretty constant..doesn't matter if I've eaten or not.  I'm just not fully reassured that this is what has caused the pain I've been having.
