Is it heartburn or not?

I just had a pain between my left nipple and the center of my chest. After that, it felt like my whole body got warm for about 30 seconds and then I felt ok. I dont know what is going on. Can someone PLEASE explain how heart burn feels?  I should tell you, I am a type 2 diabetic,been diagnosed with having Gerd, and IBS.Had my gall bladder removed 2 years ago. And been having lower back pain for the last week. My Doctor does not know what is going on with me. I had a stress test 3 years ago and everything was fine, and multiple EKGS. I have had this going on for about 3 years now. This stuff is driving me CRAZY, Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

Hi....there is a list of safe foods and food to avoid here in our Health Pages.

also there r reccommended lifestyle changes that may also help.

ie- elevating the bed...avoid wearing tight clothes ect.....

How long ru taking the meds....it can take a while for them to work...and sometimes u just need to try something diff if after awhile they no longer work.
