Just a bit of an update....have an app with my doc next week...but the constant chest pain increased the urgency so I took the covid gamble and hit emerg. Got a great Doc. Did a full cardiac workup, ECG, Cardiac enzymes, Chest X-ray, Ultrasound...everything came back well within normal values. My creatinine and urea were somewhat elevated (indicating dehydration) so they hit me with some IV fluids. The doc ordered me a PPI (pantaloc) to inhibit the acid. More or less a case of GERD. Doc referred my for a gastro-scope if needed. It's only been a few days and the chest pain has decreased but I still feel "off". I'll be asking for more thorough bloodwork with regard to test, est, thyroid etc. Would like to get to the bottom of why all of a sudden I have GERD. Anything else I should be asking of my Doc?
