A few weeks ago I had a bout of severe indigestion. I've had this a few times over the years. It lasts a couple of weeks then vanishes. So, a few weeks ago, it lasted about the typical two weeks.
The time before (about 9 months ago) I went to the doctor and was given PPIs and he listened to my heart, said it was steady, and sent me on my way. Having been there, done that, I didn't see the doctor the last time recently. It's familiar so I wasn't too concerned.
I do get chest pain when I have indigestion but, considering the accompanying symptoms I do have, what I don't have and that PPIs and antacids help, as well as that it is triggered by the wrong foods and the location of the pain, I didn't feel concerned and was just careful what I ate and waited for it to pass, which it did.
Now I look back and am concerned that maybe it was my heart after all. I have a bit of health anxiety, so that might just be creeping up on me today. All things considered, does anyone think I need to worry? I've engaged in exercise since without problems.
Side note: I would go see the doctor if I was really concerned. I'm just having a niggle of self-doubt here. Sometimes I think I should go to the doctor to ask to see a specialist to check it's not doing damage, but then it goes away and everything is fine again so I forget about it, till next time.
