Took medication for GERD, returned back. General fluttering feeling near chest, stomach. Reason for above symptoms?

Hi I am a 27 year old. I had GERD last year for which I was on medication and felt fine after 2 months till December. I stopped the medication as I was alright. Since mid January I had acid reflux again. I again started those but without consulting the doctor. Now my acid reflux is gone. But I am having a general fluttering feeling near the left chest area sometimes near stomach. I can feel my heartbeat very superficially sometimes. rarely my left hand is slightly numb. COnfused what it may be. PLease help me.

You are not mentioning when you have this pain more (at what moment) and how often?

Anyway, you should do an ECG and consult a cardiologist to exclude cardiac problems.

If no heart problem is seen, then,most probably is from nerve/muscle concerns and should be treated accordingly.

Thank you.
