Cardiologist 's  Response
Hi , Welcome to HCM ,
as your TMT is positive but we do not know your coronary artery anatomy , as TMT may false positive in many case , but we can not neglact positive TMT , so you need to take medicine or go for coronary angiogram and if it normal you can stop all above medicine and continue treatment for oesophagitis ,
at present i think you are on higher dose of cardiac medicine , you can decrease dose after consultation with cardiologist ,
you need to take proper tratment for your oesophagitis problem
take care
