Rich, can't agree more with your suggestions.

I had a severe reflux attack about 15 years ago at w*rk and had most of the symptoms of a heart attack and with my family history of heart disease I thought I should have the local clinic check it out. Long story short...they sent me by ambulance to the ER for a full cardio workup. Nothing showed up while in the hospital. Two days later I had a stress test where I showed abnormal blood flow in the heart. They scheduled me for a arteriogram and possible angioplasty. During the procedure the Doc got a bit excited and said "well look at that.." not what you want to hear when you have a tube shoved up your groin into your heart. Turns out I have a missing coronary artery since birth. My coronary blood flow is abnormal for most folks but is normal for me. No issues beyond that, so far.

My GERD is under control but I never would have found out about my heart without the coronary tests to rule out a heart disease. Of course the issue now is if I do ever have a significant blockage in the coronary arteries it will most likely be fatal because of the missing least that is what the Cardiologist said at the time. Another good reason to try to stay healthy.

Work? I don't have time to work....I'm retired.
