I've been having a lot of pain in my center, right below my sternum. When pressed, I feel sick and tender. I've also been having headaches which occur in my eyes and forehead but I'm not sure if related. The pain is worse at night when lying down and is usually accompanied by a feeling like anxiety, with painful chest, shortness of breath, and nervousness. My BP is around 100/60 and I've had a EKG which looked great so not a heart issue. I'm only 33 years old but somewhat overweight for my height (150lbs and 5'4). Please help.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Your symptoms could fit the description of acid reflux and gastric discomfort. Also anxiety can explain this as well. Try some antacids, diet lifestyle adjustments and see if it helps. Visit our GERD health center for further guidance.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
