The condition you are talking about is known as HEARTBURN/ GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX DISEASE. It has nothing to do with burning of heart. this is just for name sake. Actual disease is about reflex of gastric juices (Mostly HCL), into the esophagus (Food Pipe) because of either common vomitting or sometimes because of defective mechanism of VALVES, which guide the one way passage of food from food pipe into the stomach.
As gasrtic juices are acidic, having pH close to 2 or 3, which if comes into direct contact with soft mucosa of food pipe, then it can cause injury to that mucosa, which is felt like sometimes as burning sensation in the chest close to heart.
that's why it is known as heart burn. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING FROM STOMACH THAT CAN HAVE A PASSAGE TO HEART WHICH CAN BURN IT.

that's acid reflux! if you lay down it gets worse so prop up your pillow at night. you need to get priolsec or something like that from your doctor. also, stay away from beer, hot and spicy foods and anything that can aggravate your stomach if you don't it can burn the outside of your esophagus but that takes a while for that to happen but you still want to get attention for sooner than later.

Hey so I have been having pain in my stomach when I push on it and I seem to be bloated a lot. I have had sex recently but does something like that mean I could be pregnant? I have also had what I believe is my menstral period but I heard that you can still be pregnant with something like a period. I can also feel my heart beat in my stomach when I lay down.

For years Ive been bloated, gassy and cramped. I cant gain weight. I wake up with gas and bad taste in my mouth. I have no sinus infections but I always have bad breath ( I brush and floss daily). Ive done almost every test possible and there all clear. My doctor says its IBS and there's nothing he can do, to help (which I find hard to believe). Im a 43 yr old male 5' 11" and 140lbs.
I calculated my diet at approx. 2800-3000 calories a day. My job is not physically demanding and Ive stopped weight training.
Any help would be just great, thanks.
