Thanks!
GRED is an acid peptic disorder due to abnormality at the level of gastroesophageal junction.Typically and classically it causes retrosternal(behind the sternum) CHEST PAIN OR HEART BURN.You are a diagnosed case of GERD hence it is quite possible to have a chest pain.But this pain is not at all related to any heart related complication.You need not to worry.
What you should do is to have a regular care of your GERD through a local surgeon to stay asymptomatic.
Thanks a lot.
