Chest Pain with Acid Reflux

A friend of mine has been diagnosed with acid reflux and takes Nexium 2x/day and has for about 1 1/2 years. Just a few weeks ago she developed chest pain which occurs about 3x/wk. She stays on the strict diet, and takes the Nexium. Do chest pains mean her condition is getting worse? She's being checked by a Cardiologist and having a stess test this week. What do you all do for the chest pain? Do you take pain medication or medication given to patients truly having chest pain from heart problems?

Re: Chest Pain with Acid Reflux

I am not sure what kind of pain she's having, and of course it is always wise to chceck it out, but I can say for me, I have had a little pain on right side of chest that only lasts a few seconds, and comes and goes..now since increasing my meds to 40 mg a day, I barely notice it..I have not been to Dr for that, and most would say I am crazy not to, but it seeemd to all start when the acid junk started in MAy, so at this point, I believe they are connected.

Re: Chest Pain with Acid Reflux

suelynn,
Thanks for your response. I'm not sure how much pain she's in or how long it lasts. She's elderly so it is a good idea that she's getting a Cardiologist to check her out.
