Yes, BooBoo, Gerd definitely can feel like a heart attack. Pain in chest and back and up the arms and in the jaw! I know, cause it happened to me many years ago and then again two weeks ago. You must go to a Gastro doctor to confirm this. Also a cardiologist will give you tests to rule out it is your heart. You must not "assume" that those pains are from Gerd even though you can have those very pains you describe. A heart attack can also have the same symptoms. Rule it out with the two type doctors I mentioned.
Good luck to you!
