Suggest treatment for acid reflux

Hi, I ve seen my cardiologist (arrhy problem) and also seen my regular m.d. Thought I was having a heart attack last Saturday but my m.d. said I have acid reflux. My cardiologist said nothing. In the center of my body just a couple of inches down from my breasts it s tight and sore. Is this a symptom of acid reflux? or something else. Thank you!!!!

Hi,
Yes,sometimes there might be lower chest pain and burning sensations in case of acid reflux or reflux esophagitis known as gastroesophageal reflux disease.
It is because of abnormal relaxation of lower esophageal sphincer allowing back reflux of gastric contents.
You might go for routine blood and ultrasound abdomen check up.Uperr GI endoscopy will confirm diagnosis.
You may require antacid with prokinetic agents which allows emptying of stomach contents easily.
Apart from medicine,
Don't take heavy food once inspire of this you can take small frequent meals.
Don't take oily and spicy foods.
Don't take rest up to 2 to 3 hours after food.
Do slow walking but not fast.
Consult gastroenterologist for further advise.
