    Hi Lori,

     

    It is possible that you are having reflux which can sometimes show up as "chest pain." 

     

    Heartburn

     

    A feeling of your heart racing can also be a type of arrhythmia.

     

    Arrhythmias

     

    The only way to know for sure is to make an appointment with your physician.  If you have chest pain or any other symptoms of a heart attack though, go to the emergency room immediately. 

     

    Best of luck,

    Monica M. Skidmore, MS, RD, LDN
