I have had many ekg's,a stress eco, a nuclear stress test, blood work, many chest x-rays a holter monitor as well as a 30 day event monitor, all came back fine, I have gastritis and when I get a flare up my left side of my chest, shoulder and arm experience some pain. Should I be worried about my heart after all these tests or should I just ry to help my reflux and gastritis

Dr. Natasha :

hello

Dr. Natasha :

welcome to the chat

Dr. Natasha :

are you still there

Customer:

yes hello

Dr. Natasha :

I am reading your information again

Customer:

thanks, I think it maybe I am just nervous but gastritis is scary to me because it effects my left side so often

Dr. Natasha :

Did you have an endoscopy?

Customer:

yes and it confirmed gastritis I was also treated for hylicobacter. I finished the medicine and about a month after I am having a flare up is that common

Dr. Natasha :

yes, you can get a flare up

Dr. Natasha :

did you get retested

Dr. Natasha :

it may not have been erradicated

Customer:

not yet. I was told to double my dose of omeprazole to see if that helps

Dr. Natasha :

ok

Customer:

I will ask to get retested, the flare up concerns me I wasn't sure it could happen and with all the heart tests I had and I also run and do yoga about six times a week but I worried because I didn't know I could get a flare up

Dr. Natasha :

well, if you had all of these heart tests then it is NOT your heart

Dr. Natasha :

especially if you are as active as you are

Dr. Natasha :

no way

Dr. Natasha :

but you can get flare up of gastritis

Dr. Natasha :

I would consider asking your doctor for carafate

Dr. Natasha :

it also helps with gastritis

Dr. Natasha :

and is a little different from the omeprazole

Customer:

thanks that is a comfort. I will see if the omeprazole double dose works if not I will get retested You were very helpfull

Customer:

He did mention Carafate as well I will ask him about it

Dr. Natasha :
