Suprised at cardio appoitment today
Well today was my yearly checkup with my primary cardio. He said that he does not feel my symptoms ( jaw pain, arm pain, SOB, fatigue and many more) are cardic related. He said my MVP is not showing on the most recent echo, my calcium scoring was 0, and my nuclear stress test from last year all showed my heart being in good shape so he doesnt feel i need to see him unless a problem comes up. He said my cholesterol is bad and needs to be taken care of but that my primary GP can handle that. I was so totally not expecting this at my appoitment. I told him about the pressure in my throat for the last few days, he said its probably acid reflux/gerd and gave me a script for some Nexium and to follow up with the problem with my GP. I have been seeing this cardio for about 5 years now and i just feel so let down, but my mom said its a good thing that he is confident i dont need to be wasting time with a cardio cause my heart is fine. I do go have blood work done Thursday and then see my GP in 2 weeks so i guess i will see how that goes and what he thinks. My throat problems this weekend seem to be better but i do have alot of burning and soreness in my throat. Does anyone take Nexium and if so does it help??
