What are the symptoms of heartburn?

The usual symptom of heartburn is a burning sensation in the chest. It can be accompanied by a sour taste at the back of the throat, or a feeling of food being stuck in the throat.

If heartburn symptoms are accompanied with shortness of breath, radiation to the arms or neck, dizziness or cold sweat, the person needs to be evaluated by a health care professional as soon as possible.
