Customer Question

I have a feeling of pressure on my upper chest. Sometimes the pressure is on different areas of my throat. I don't have a cough or acid reflux or any type of nasal issues. I've very healthy other wise but would like to have this checked out. Can you recommend a specific type of doctor? Or do you know what is wrong? Thanks, Amber

Internal medicine doctor.

We cover all specialties in adult medicine, all in one.

You can not say you don't have reflux without PH testing of the esophagus.

There is no other way to definitely rule it out.

Of course heart problems must always be ruled out.

and you should have had an EKG by so if this comes back.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
