Thanks for the information,

You may be having GERD(gastro-esophageal reflux disease).It may present like that and also mimic heart ailments.If your ECG was normal,then you can rule out arrthymias so the next doubt would be the upper GI.You should also get a ultrasound upper abdomen to rule out gall bladder symptoms.A breast examination to rule out lumps is also needed.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any follow up queries I will be available to answer them.

hi i have the last question a stress test fine to catch arrthymias or i need some other tests?
Answered by Dr. Rhea Chanda 3 hours later
Most times arrthymias can be diagnosed by an ECG and stress tests.Other tests may not be required if not indicated.If both the tests are clear then you can rule out heart arrthymias.Functional problems can be ruled out by Echo.
