Hi I have been posting on here for months now regarding heart palpitations, pain in chest, dizziness, numb tingly fingers etc and have been told over and over it is GERD, I have had a chest X ray, several ECG's, bloods etc. Today I went to cardiologist and was given a stress test on a treadmill which showed that my heart cramped, meaning I could have a blocked artery. He did say that it may not be as this quite often shows in women due to their breasts !!!! Anyway have now been put on Bisacoldol Beta Blocker for 30 days to slow heart rate before a CT scan. Had the GP and 2 different A&E departments checked I may not have had to put up with this for so long. The symptoms are the same as a lot of us post, so if not happy with verdict especially as like me my acid had not worsened, in fact was better keep on at the GP. I am terrified to start the Beta Blockers as they cause even worse symptoms and terrified that exercising will make my heart worse.
