| | Abnormal ECG
I am a male, in my early forties on high blood pressure and cholesterol medication. For a number of years now I have had trouble with indigestion. The worst is when the pressure is great and I just can't burp. When I finally do, the burps are long and they always come from the area where I have pain. I've had endoscopys and I have a small polyp that was checked and ruled ok. I was put on Nexium for GERDS and sent for a stress test. Now I am a nervous sort and tests and doctors don't agree with me. After 2 stress tests and an ultrasound of my heart I was told my heart is getting the blood it needs. However I have an abnormal ecg. My doctor wants to send me for an angiogram to rule out blockages. He has said that he dosen't suspect one because the tests showed good blood flow to the heart. He said 30% of the population have abnormal ecg's. Does anyone out there have an abnormal ecg? Also because of my nerves now, when I get stressed from everyday life or excercise, my indigestion flares up and the gas pain now feels like chest pain. However all pain goes away once the burping starts. Is this all in my head or do I really have heart problems.
