Right now you are having a panic attack! Chill out! Take some deep breaths,and relax. I answered some of your other questions,please go back and look at my responses. Heartburn can cause pain like angina at times,BUT so can an anxiety or panic attack. I personally have experienced anxiety attacks,and my last one,in particular I swore i was having a heart attack. You may need to go to the doctor or emergency room for an accurate diagnosis and treatment. Obviously there is something going on with you right now,but try to relax and calm down. Tell yourself that you will be ok. If you can't drive yourself,call someone to take you in to the ER. There are meds to treat anxiety,heartburn and angina...BUT,you need to find out what is really causing you to feel this way first. Hope this helps. Zoya.
