Heartburn is a sensation of tightness, pain or discomfort in the middle of the chest that can but doesn't always follow an occurrence of acid reflux. Heartburn is exactly what it would feel like if acid ate away at the lining of your esophagus, because that's what's happening. (more of like a burning sensation after you ate too much pizza)
