I was taken to A&E with mild chest discomfort on Saturday. My MI was 10 weeks ago.I
had an acid reflux attack with mild chest pains/discomfort which seemed to be an exact repeat of what happened when I had my MI. An ambulance took me to A&E. ECG was ok, 2 blood tests 3 hours apart showed troponin level of 11. I was discharged later on, Doctor said heart is OK and that I should take PPI daily (instead of only when I get acid)
I've been taking esomeprazole since Saturday and still have a 'strange' feeling in my upper chest . Normally, I don't feel anything.
Is troponin 11 nothing to worry about?
I'm concerned about taking PPI (esomeprazole, omezaprole) for life as there are too many bad side effects. Thoughts?
Why am I suddenly getting weird chest pains/feelings/discomfort after 10 weeks?
Any advice appreciated
