Having problem of indigestion and heart burn. Tongue feeling heavier. Worried about blocked arteries

Dear doctor Recently I had a problem of indigestion and heart burn . The burning sensation started from the center and spread to the left side if my chest . Quick movements like brisk walking n even climbing up the stairs can trigger that sensation. I m also feeling that my speech is not what it used to be, my tongue feels a little heavier than before. I am worried if I may have a blockage in some arteries. I also experience a heavy head. Pls advise

Hello,

You must go to your doctor as soon as possible as your symptoms suggest coronary heart disease. Avoid strenuous activity until you have been examined.

Thank you.

How can you tell the difference between heart burn and heart problems ? I get what feels like heart burn sometimes. But I am worried it might be more. How can i tell if it is heart burn, or a heart problem ? They seem very similar with their symtpoms, so what symptoms help seperate them?

I have pain where my arms attach to my body, feel slightly nauseous, feel like I need to burp-my breathing is fine. Maybe just indigestion?-had a spicy-somewhat rich supper.
