Acid reflux is very serious. It can make your chest hurt, even make you feel that you are having a heart attack. It is urgent that you go to the dr. They can check you out for other things that the symptoms could come from to eliminate causes. If you are not taking medication for your acid reflux, I urge you to go to a gastronologist asap if you haven't already, or the dr that diagnosed you. You need to be on medication. Your age, what you eat, and your weight, can have no affect of the cause, though what you eat can make it worse, and weight is a factor to everything, except my grand daughter was born with it, my son, me, and my mother have all been affected with it.

Do not ignore this, as it can cause cancer of the esophogus, of which I have been told there is no cure. My mother died from it.
