Definitely 2nd opinion and ask for a CT Angiogram. That will show any plaque build up in your arteries that may be causing the chest pains. You can pass a stress test easily and still have blockage. That will give you peace of mind. I can’t believe cardiologist wait so long to do that test. It’s better than a stress test and isn’t that expensive. Insurance may or may not cover and it only takes 15 minutes. You may have no plaque build up but it will show you.

I’m no doctor but I’ve had acid reflux basically since I was 12 (40 now) and this sounds like very typical acid reflux to me. May have to stay on a PPI longer than 1 month. Maybe try Nexium since that’s supposedly proven to help heal the stomach. Your diet could also be causing these problems. Google foods to avoid with acid reflux. That’s my best guess! Good luck

Grateful that we caught it though! My mother had a stent placement at the age of 70. No one as early as me. I just turned 40 and have kept myself in good shape. They believe it was hereditary along with some diet issues. Pretty early though!

Sorry to hear that. I haven’t posted in a while and I didn’t have the same breathing issues as you but i had chest pain etc for almost 7 months undiagnosed. They threw anxiety and stress at me every time along with musculoskeletal. I ended up pushing them harder and they ordered a CT scan to see my arteries and heart more closely. They found I was 90% blocked in my main coronary artery. I was shocked and so were they. Immediately admitted and had a stent put in. It’s been 2 months since then. Be persistent and stick up for your self if the pains aren’t going away. Best of luck.

Hey thank you for replying! I see cardio next Wednesday so I’m excited to see if they have some insight. The discomfort/pain has subsided a little the past few days while on vacation at the beach. Not sure if the relaxation and ocean water has something to do with it. If so, guessing I have to move to the ocean! Also I didn’t mention that the beginning of this chest issue started my 3rd day into taking a script for Adderall. I’ve suffered with ADHD for quite sometime and I finally broke down and was evaluated. Script was for 20mg of XR. I stopped taking after 3 days. Week later switched to 5mg of IR as needed then a few weeks later landed on 10mg of XR as needed. It’s helped immensely with my ADHD but might? Be causing this chest issue. Not sure. Hopefully cardio has some answers. I stopped taking it about 4 days ago too so I could see if there was any correlation between the meds and the chest issues. There could be some placebo affect to the discomfort being less. Not sure. I certainly don’t want to damage my heart if that is what’s happening. The meds could have nothing to do with it too. Thanks for checking in. I’ll post an update after cardio. Thank you. Jeff

@capt209 wow I have verbatim exactly what you have going on. Same history. Same form and location of chest discomfort. History of taking PPIs. I went for the bravo and endoscopy first because my family doc recommended it based on my GERD history. Everything was fine. No issues. Now I’m headed to cardiology in 10 days. Did you find a resolution? It’s driving me nuts but mostly the anxiety of thinking Im about to have a heart attack at the age of 39. Hopefully you found something. Thanks! Jeff
