    Reflux. Take an antacid.

    It's awful taste. It repeats for a long time, I'll have to wait until tomorrow to buy some as I don't have any. Not sure if its related, but I've had chest pains in upper part of my chest area, part just below collar bones in the middle left area. Also, my back shoulder blade is feeling quite tender and sore again. Would it be related or just something else?

    I have acid reflux and from my experience you can get chest pains all over like that. Usually with acid reflux you can get heartburn and gas, which go hand in hand with acid reflux. When you do get some antacids and if the pain subsides, especially if you burp a lot or pass gas, after you take one, then you'll know what the problem is. Because real heart issues don't stop giving you problems after you've taken antacids. Another clue is if the pain/heartburn starts up not too long after you eat.

    Yeah, I only got the pains later this evening, and the taste after I belch later as well, I stopped eating just before 8pm tonight (its now nearly 3am here), so not sure if it would be repeating after so long, but I'm drinking plenty of water now. I had a greasy breakfast (late around 12am, and then had no dinner and only chocolate snacks the rest of the day. so probably didn't help.

    The chest pain is coming now and again, like a thumping pain, its a mild sensation, but once I start getting it I start panicking that its a heart attack or something serious. Then I start stressing, which probably won't help. I haven't got any burning like heartburn feeling, just when I belch a real sicky taste. Yeah, so my worry goes straight to heart attacks and other such things.

    What you are eating is the perfect recipe for reflux, which causes chest pain. In fact, pain from reflux can radiate almost anywhere in my experience.

    Yeah, I avoided anything like that today. No horrible taste when belching, but still getting a bit of chest pain, but not sure if its being caused by my back left shoulder blade maybe? My shoulder often gets sore and achy, you can hear cracking noises as well.

    It's a mild pain, and I don't get it often, only started up again this evening, like a thumping pain, but my mind instantly goes to heart attacks and other heart things, which is why I panic more.

    Seriously? You say the same thing time after time.... What do you expect?

    Well if you move your left arm and your shoulder/shoulder blade hurts a little more in a certain way or with a particular movement, I doubt it's going to be any heart issues. It could be a joint issue, pinched nerve, arthritis, or anything besides heart issues. And if you can be mindful of your negative thoughts, that would eventually help a lot with your panic attacks in the long run.
