Hello,I am Dr. Aren with over 38 years of experience and I will help with your query. Retrosternal discomfort is usually secondary to oesophagitis or GastroEsophageal Reflux Disease(GERD),cardiac conditions like Coronary Artery Disease or coronary insufficiency,hiatus hernia or oesophageal motility disorders.It would be prudent to rule out any cardiac causes by getting a Tread Mill test or stress test done for the heart.A oesophageal motility study may also be needed.Perhaps another consultation with your PCP and Gasteroenterologist would be prudent.

OK thwnks how about my question about gastritis?
Health Professional: Vakul Aren, Doctor replied 7 months ago

Gastritis may be only one part of it,the whole problem needs to be looked into.A repeat upper Gi endoscopy will help as will other tests.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
