Chest pain, pain shifts from left to right, stomach, burning sensation, ECG normal, heart stent put. Recommendations?

I am having chest pain for the past several days. The pain shifts from left to right and sometimes to the stomach. when it shifts, there is a burning sensation in the chest. Sometimes it shifts to the side ribs for a while. I had a heart stent put in about a year ago. The ECG taken now is normal. I have a history of reflux but that has been under control in recent months. What could this be, Doctor?

Hello Dear!

This is Dr.Suleman Resident Cardiology Cardiac Rehabilitation Center.

If your EKG is normal then most probably your reflux problem is back. Shifting pain from one side to another and then going towards the stomach all are in favors of Stomach Acidity. I suggest you to take Capsule Risek (Omeperazole) 40 mg just before breakfast. Im sure your this problem will resolve.

But if you are oversuspicious about heart problem and then ask yourself these questions

1) pain increase with exertion and resovled with rest
2) pain has nor relation with food
3) pain does not change with pressing the area of pain
4) pain resolve with ANGISID (that tablet which most patient take it during angina pain and put in under your tongue)

If above are true then get an ETT (stress test) and if you fail these test then you will need Angiography again. but I hope it wont be heart disease. but some simple acid reflux disease.

Hope its answer to your question. if you have furher query you can ask. if it helped please rate question helpful

Thanks and get Well soon
