Hello. I have a history of Gerd and take aciphex. I do have very well controlled hypertension and take hyzaar daily. My last cardiology visit was a year ago and my stress test was excellent. The issues i'm having the last few weeks are indigestion like pressure when walking which subsides when I rest/stop. It also seems that every evening at the same time while resting and I get up from a sitting position i get a pressure with burning that gets heavier. I take tums and asa and rest and it quickly subsides. Increasing fruits and vegetables and making other nutritional changes has also helped; the pressure and burning at night has decreased significantly. I'm 5'9", 185 pounds. I recently fell and injured my left shoulder. I am seeing an orthopedic doctor and have an upcoming appointment with my gastroenterologist.

My question: can this all be gastro related? My blood pressures have been great with regular rate and rhythm. Is it possible to still have heart problems. I plan to see my cardiologist as well.

thank you

Hello.

Dr. D.J. :

These symptoms can be gastro related.

Dr. D.J. :

You did have a normal stress test a yr ago.

Dr. D.J. :

But, heart related problem can still pop up within this time period.

Dr. D.J. :

Now, your symptoms seem to be improving without any additional measures.

Dr. D.J. :

The symptoms seem to be diet related.

Dr. D.J. :

However, another stress can be planned if your symptoms worsen further with physical exertion.

Dr. D.J. :

So far, it does sound gastro related.

Dr. D.J. :
