Chest uneasiness, dizziness, cold sweats, acidity throughout the day, intermittent rapid pulses. Heart attack signs?

Hello, I am a 31 year Male. Off late I have been experiencing uneasiness over the left side of my chest and have felt dizzy on a couple of instances with a bit of cold sweating in last 2 days. This happened in the night in bed. I have been experiencing a terrible acidity through out the day and this has been going on for a while. Once I take any anti acidic medicine, the acidity goes off I also feel intermittent rapid pulse on the left side of my neck area.. I was smoking for last 9 years and now have quit. Can you help me with a quick check that I can perform to ensure that I am not getting a Heart Attack?

Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

I went through your description and can clearly tell you that you are not having symptoms of heart attack. Apart from what you mentioned, there are so many other symptoms for a normal heart attack. Also you are mentioning that you have acidity related issues.

You should know acidity. Acidity caused by indigestion or excess secretion of digestive juices. Such acidity produces reflux and pushes the diaphragm up and we feel tightness and pain on the chest area. Sweat must have been caused from different cause and palpitation happened due to anxiety. You are just 31. Exercise and reduce the chances of diseases.

For now, you can consult a general physician and check your vitals and he will advice you to take EKG and if necessary STRESS TEST. You had quit smoking and try not to restart smoking. Exercise regularly and eat balanced food. Include garlic and onion in diet daily.

Hope I am able to partially clarify your doubts. Available for further enquiries.
Good luck.
