I’ve been really shortness of breath mostly in the past 24 hours. And heart problems run on my dads side. I’m 47 and had tests done bout 2-3 years ago. All negative.
Could it be a sign of a heart attack coming on?
you have a heart attack family history?
if you have this strong feeling haunt you, go to the doctor to check out. even  a famous cardiologist can come a conclusion without doing examination.
What are signs of a heart attack
Chest tightness, chest pain, left shoulder or throat pain, accompanied by panic, shortness of breath, sweating, occasional nausea and vomiting.
Since ladt night I have had the worst heart burn and my lower back was killing me that I couldn't sleep. I finally fell asleep and still woke up with the heartburn. It's been an all day thing and I have tried everything from tums to zantac also baking soda and water. Still feeling not so good that my ears hurt too.
you should go to the hopsital ASAP.
I am not sure it's heart attact or not, a simple blood test and EKG can identify.
Besides, digestive ulcer is also very possible. it can be terrible.
I'm at the Hospital right now and they did a EKG and take some blood

Periodontal disease is related to coronary heart disease in some way . Periodontitis may cause infectious Endocarditis.

Gastrointestinal complaints such as belching, abdominal distension, abdominal pain, constipation or gastrointestinal flatulence are not caused by excessive gas. When intestinal gas is excessive, it may be caused by excessive air intake, poor nutrient absorption, increased gas production in intestinal cavity, decreased gas absorption caused by obstruction, and intestinal gas expansion caused by changes in barometric pressure. Gas content in the intestine - body volume recording belching - belching or belching refers to the retrograde discharge of gases from the esophagus or stomach from the mouth. The process may be spontaneous or non-spontaneous. Spontaneous belching usually occurs after meals and is caused by the release of swallowed air from the distended stomach.
Foods that relax the lower esophageal sphincter (such as chocolate, fat and mint) may promote belching.
Chronic, recurrent belching is a disease caused by habitual air deglutition (deglutition). In this case, the gas may only enter the esophagus before it is discharged. This variant is called "upper gastric belching". The belching of these patients often becomes a habit and may be mistaken for a manifestation of potential digestive problems. Epigastric belching occurs more frequently than gastric belching. According to the Roman IV criterion, belching is defined as the presence of disturbing esophageal or gastric belching more than three days a week (i.e., severe enough to affect daily activities). Performance over the past three months should meet these criteria and symptoms should begin at least six months before diagnosis.

According to the source of reflux gas, belching can be divided into:

Excessive belching in the stomach (from the esophagus)

Excessive belching in the stomach (from the stomach)

If frequent repeated belching is observed, the diagnosis of upper gastric belching is supported. Gastric belching has no definite clinical manifestations. Gastric upper belch and gastric belch can be distinguished by objective intracavitary
I’m 65. I have high BP. Can be as high as 170/92. I’m on Cardizem, Lisinopril, Ramipril and Metoprolol. For 3 days I keep getting upper left mild chest pain. Sometimes associated with left arm pain. It doesn’t last long. Should I tell my Dr. now or can it wait?
I think you should not take Lisinopril, Ramipril  at the same time, because they are in the same category . if you have them at the same time, your serum potassium will increase. you should see your cardiologist  ASAP. Isosorbide mononitrate maybe a better option for your BP and chest pain.
How can you tell if is  heart attack ,  
 A enxiety attack or bad circulation.
All the symptoms refer to all three things
Actually symptoms can be similar but point to different diseases. You're right saying so. That's why tests matter.
I’m a 53 year old woman. Several hours ago I suddenly broke out in a cold sweat throughout my body. It was intense and lasted about 15 minutes. Shortly afterward, I began having intermittent pressure in my chest. It lasts anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes each time. A few times it radiated to my back, creating a lot of intense pain. Could it be heart-related?
Hello, it's very likely heart related, please go to hospital.
I have had chest pain directly in the center of my chest for months now. It only happens and wakes me in early am hours, only lasts a few minutes, and is relieved when sitting up and taking deep breaths.
Hello, I'm thinking of reflux esophagitis, I'll recommend you to take an examination.
I've been having pain in my left hand and shoulder but not so much my arm. Some dull pain in the center of my chest. Felt full all day and couldn't eat. Could this be just heartburn? Some discomfort between my stomach and chest
Hello, I'll recommend you to visit your doctor and take some examinations.
I’ve been having chest pains only on left side on and off for 4-6 weeks. It’s like an intense pins and needles sensation. It always comes on with stress, but has been coming on even without stressful events lately. Have had it since last evening. I don’t seem to have other symptoms, but I have so much other pain from Fibromyalgia and a fused back that didn’t heal correctly it’s hard to determine for sure.
Doesn't sound like a heart problem...
