Brief Answer:
I would explain as follows:

Detailed Answer:

Welcome back on HCM!

I understand your concern and would like to reassure you that your symptoms do not indicate any cardiac disorders.

They could be related to gastritis, as the pain is in the stomach area. Chostochondritis could also trigger such pain in this region.

Anyway, I would recommend starting a PPI (omeprazole, pantoprazole, etc.)or anti-acid in the morning. If it helps improve your pain, it would be another argument in favor of gastritis.

Hope you will find this answer helpful!

If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask me again!

Kind regards,

Dr. Iliri

In such case a fibrogastroscopy may be needed.
