I've been lucky enough in my whole life that I've never had heartburn before, so I don't know what it feels like.
This morning, even before eating, I started getting these bad chest pains... like it feels like its on the bone (though it's probably not) right in between my breasts. It kind of comes and goes, but sometimes it hurts so bad that I literally drop what I'm doing. I called the on-call OB, and she said it might be reflux (which is heartburn), and to take Tums and put ice on it, and if it doesn't feel better in two hours to head to the ER. I just got off the phone with her and sent DH to go get some Tums, but I was just thinking about it... can you even get heartburn if you haven't eaten anything today yet?
