Well it seems no one has looked for the obvious.
You have risk factors for heart disease
And symtpoms that may be due to angina
and the only test done on your heart is an EKG
you need, at the very least, a stress test...
either on the treadmill or a chemical stress test
Angina can cause a variety of symtpoms
And is a warning sign of possible heart attack
I don't understand not looking into the possibility that this is your heart.
HERE IS A GOOD LINK FROM MAYO CLINIC ON ANGINA
are you there?
i do not see you in the chat... i will check back with you shortly. please do read the link above. be right back.
I am not sure why my heart hasn't been checked more closely. It seems that after the ekg was ok that the doc just moved on to other possible causes, not the least of which was the reflux. Personally I am thinking I may have both happening, reflux and heart issues.
I think that the angina may not be high on the radar because I don't seem to have any
chest "pain" exactly, more a discomfort/pressure in my stomach. Nor does it seem to get worse with exercise or better when I stop exercise.
