    I went to the Arkansas Heart Hospital Clinic this morning
    for an echocardiogram (ECG) and a chemical stress test. I
    wanted to find out if my chest pain was heart related or
    not.

    Well, apparently, it's caused by acid reflux...as no
    blockage was found. While I'm classed as overweight and
    obese by my body mass index, at least my heart is good.

    I had a treadmill stress test about 6 weeks ago due to chest pains. Mine
    was also caused by acid reflux as well as pinched nerves. Some physical therapy really helped the latter.

    I passed the stress test, too. :)

    Mike,

    Well, apparently, it's caused by acid reflux...as no
    blockage was found. While I'm classed as overweight and
    obese by my body mass index, at least my heart is good.

    I had a treadmill stress test about 6 weeks ago due to chest pains. Mine MP>was also caused by acid reflux as well as pinched nerves. Some physical MP>therapy really helped the latter.

    From what I understand, the nerves that trigger angina for a heart
    attack are the same ones triggered by acid reflux. Those pinched nerves
    are no fun.

    I passed the stress test, too. :)

    At least it wasn't like the cartoon, where this woman is "tied up in a chair", and "wired for sound". The doctor tells her "We've got a new,
    more reliable stress test. No more huffing and puffing on a treadmill".

    What the lady doesn't realize is that there's a bag full of spiders up
    above her head, and an evil eyed nurse is about to "cut it loose".

    I'd crap my pants and have a heart attack if that was done to me!! :P

    Yes on both counts. :)
