'Gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, is a digestive disorder that affects the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), the ring of muscle between the esophagus and stomach. Many people, including pregnant women, suffer from heartburn or acid indigestion caused by GERD

I'm trying to figure out if what I'm experiencing is acid reflux/gerd related

I'm trying to figure out if what I'm experiencing is acid reflux/gerd related. I'm going to the doctor Friday to get confirmation but basically I was super stressed last month (numerous panic attacks) then out of no where I started doing a lot of burping. Over the last few weeks it's turned into air bubbles or gas in my chest and throat and lots of chest pressure and burping but I haven't felt any heartburn. I have had that acid like feeling after a few burps but it's not all the time. Right now the chest pressure is what I'm most concerned about because it's very uncomfortable. Sometimes when I burp - it feels better but it builds back up pretty fast. Also when I eat, it feels like food is just sitting in my chest and throat. Does this sound like anything you all experience?
