Since you have seen your cardiologist as recently as this past August and he/she is NOT CONCERNED, which is entirely different than "dismissing" the issue, personally, I would be relieved. I'm going to assume they took the time to address your questions and concerns and discussed with you any changes in your condition which you need to make them aware of. You said you're on meds for your HBP, but did not say if they were giving you anything for the bradycardia. (Personally, I'm not even sure if there IS anything they can give you) You state that you have GERD, and depending on the severity of that, there are medications you can take for that. I have mild GERD and there ARE times when I get nervous wondering if it's actually cardiac related. Do they have you on a PPI for the GERD? Sometimes when I'm experiencing GERD, I take a couple swigs of Pepto-Bismol and it helps. DO NOT SELF MEDICATE WITH PEPTO UNTIL YOU'VE TALKED TO YOUR CARDIO ABOUT THIS! Pepto is, I believe, contraindicated if you are taking certain other medications. If you believe you are having gallbladder pains, you need to discuss this with your GP or even your cardio. They may advise you to have a CT done and see if there ARE stones causing the pains. I was having right side flank pain that radiated under my right shoulder blade. When I finally mentioned this to my GP, she sent me for a CT and they DID find that I have quite a few small stones in the gallbladder. Since my frequency of these "attacks" are somewhat few and far between and the pain in not horrible, the gastroenterologist said that we could postpone the surgery for now. It was a tremendous relief to know what and where the pain was coming from. I hope you will mention this the next time you see one of your doctors. Going back to your GERD issue, I simply don't know if the acid from your stomach can "make its way to your chest…." and this is another question your doctor needs to answer. I DO know that if my GERD causes stomach acid to "reflux" up my esophagus, the intense burning and pain does seem to radiate across my entire chest. It sounds to me like you have a lot of unanswered questions and concerns that are not being addressed by your doctors. Perhaps if you make a list of all these questions and concerns and GET ANSWERS for them…..this will help you. If you don't understand something, never hesitate to ask your doctor to explain it again! Your other option is to get a second opinion. If you feel your concerns are being "dismissed," and other issues are not even being addressed, assuming you've talked to your doctor(s) about them, then a second opinion would be my advice. In this day and age when we are shipped out to one specialist after another, it can become too overwhelming for us lay people to know what we should do, what we should prioritize. This happened to me and finally, near tears, I went to my GP with all my medications, diagnoses and plans of action and she understood immediately why I was so stressed out. She helped me organize, collate and put everything into perspective. When I left her office, it was the first time in MONTHS that I felt in control and it was the best feeling in the world. I hadn't realized until then how alone and anxious I had been feeling. I hope YOU have someone in your corner.
