Scared of a heart attack

So earlier I had a pain in the center of my chest. A few mins later I burped so I'm sure the pain was due to gas. Now I can't stop thinking about I'm going to have a heart attack. Has anyone else did this?

A heart attack would be very simple to feel it is a crushing pain in the chest with shortness of breath I highly doubt anyone has ever experienced a heart attack and wondering if something is wrong put your mind at ease that it was probably just trapped gas or acid

This is a familiar sensation for me, especially since I have GERD. Yes, it causes some anxiety for me at times, because heart problems are the one thing I still worry about occasionally. I've taken the time to understand how it feels to have reflux, and how it feels in my chest, so it's much easier to deal with now.
