I'm having heartburn in the center of my chest Different
Patient :I'm having heartburn in the center of my chest. Different from what I experienced in the past. It's more intermittent. I also have been feeling light headed when I get down and stand back up. This is also new within the past couple of days. I smoke and am on antidepressants. Have not been bothered by these symptoms until the last week or so
Read and understood that for a week the symptoms are different than they were before. Also noted that the problem is intermittent, that you smoke and are on antidepressants and you feel lightheaded.
If I were to treat you, I would like to do EKG and cardiac check up first. And an upper GI endoscopy to rule out any serious matter.
This is very important point, rest of the treatment is symptomatic.
Please tell me the previous medications, reports and clinical presentation so that we can discuss treatment in details.
Awaiting for yours.
