Heartburn or heart attack? Here’s the difference

Experiencing pain or discomfort in your chest can be alarming, but is it always a cause for concern? While chest pain is one of the cardinal symptoms of a heart attack, it has also been linked to a far less severe condition known as GERD—gastroesophageal reflux disease—which is more commonly referred to as heartburn. While one of these conditions requires immediate medical attention, the other may simply pass with time, so how can you tell whether you’re experiencing a heart attack or heartburn?
