Chest pain scare

Last night I was sitting at the computer watching a video on how to make 3D UV maps in Blender and I started feeling a bit of pain in my chest area. Cue panic attack on if I was having a heart attack or not. I really can't afford anything like that. And I'm only 40. But... I am a bit over weight and under lots of stress and... yeah. But it did not feel like heart attack.

So, I did some looking online and it seemed more like bad indigestion. Heartburn, I know that can be caused by stress too, and I have stress to spare, so I looked more.

I got a bit of baking soda and water and sipped it and sure enough, the symptoms went away almost at once and I haven't had any trouble since. Hopefully it stays that way.
