heart burn or heart disease?

I have been having terrible chest pain along with heart burn the only way to describe it is it feels like the pain is around my heart and the burning goes all the way up my throat.  could this be a heart issue or just bad indigestion?

It is probably just bad reflux.  You can try over the counter prevacid or prilosec to see if they help.

It could be both.  I had similar symptoms in 2005 that turned out to be both.  The indigestion turned out to be Endoscopy Negetative Reflux Disease.  I had a stint put in my heart and all is well there.  Good luck
