What causes dizziness along with chest pain and belching?

Hello. Today, while I was driving I had a brief moment where I got extremely lightheaded but have not had that issue again. However, all day today I have had pain in my chest off and on and a lot of belching. I have read information that points to GERD or acid reflux but the lightheadedness points to heart attack. Right now I am not having any pain. Should I be worried that my pain is more that acid reflux. Also, I was told the lightheadedness could be low sugar. Which I do not think it was the case with me but often worry because diabetes of both types runs in my bloodline. I was shaky this morning. But I was drinking on an Vanilla Iced coffee and I had a sausage biscuit with cheese and a little strawberry jelly this morning prior to the lightheadedness feeling while I was driving. The shakiness happens often, mostly in the morning. I do plan on addressing these things next month with my PCP but I am hoping to lessen my current worries for now.

The last 2 months I have had all kinds of pains,(chest, head dizziness, balance off, dizziness). I believe for the last 2 months, my cpap machine is pushing out too much air pressure. This is not allowing me to breathe out (exhale) the proper amount of air out. I am often woke up 2 TO 3 times a night because off a increased heart rate. I believe I am basically getting too much carbon dioxide from inhaling, and not releasing the proper amount of air out due to cpap pressure set too high. Two months of this and I have all these sypmtoms. I believe all of this can be fixed by my machine being set at lower pressure?
