Thoracic pain of non-cardiac origin

This is intense chest pain accompanied by a sensation of tightness or pressure, similar to the sensation felt during a heart attack. The primary cause of this group of symptoms is acid reflux, and can only be told apart from a heart attack with an electrocardiogram (ECG). If the ECG displays normal results, the problem can be attributed to the digestive system. In this case, an endoscopic procedure is an important tool to diagnose the specific cause of digestive disease and provide the proper treatment.
