I am 78, play senior basketball, and recently started feeling

I am 78, play senior basketball, and recently started feeling a burning pain in my esophagus, it goes away after a while on its own but sometimes takes a while, sometimes not. sometimes I get a mild case when I get up from a lying down position. Had a stress test about 2 yrs ago, Dr said I have strong heart, like a 20 yr old, BP is good, pulse is low, what happening?

Yes, my son (23 years old) was feeling fine all day and he went out to shoot a few hoops (literally a few minutes only). He came in and made himself something to eat. He sat down and in a couple of minutes started feeling light headed, was sweating from his forehead neck and chest and felt nauseous (he actually did vomit). He is otherwise very healthy, no history of anything.

Hi My 15 year old active son has recently started having issues with exertion. During basketball tryouts and now practice, he starts to lose his breath and tells me that he feels a sensation of pins and needles in his chest area. His blood pressure is good and an x-ray shows nothing. I m concerned as he has never had this before and he is more fit than ever. The exercise is hard but he s done it before. He looks stressed when this happens and is able to continue with a small break but still not at a level he is use to. We are waiting for an EKG. Any suggestions? No other health issues. Eats fairly healthy with occasional protein shakes. Drinks mainly water and almond milk.
