It usually faded with reflux meds and he was diagnosed 9 years ago with GERD. It started back pretty intense around the time all this crap came out and I often see him rubbing that area of his chest.
Today the Zantac wasn't touching it and I talked him into going into the doctor.He ended up in the ER and we just got home from a bunch of tests. Long story short they wanted to keep him because of an abnormality in his EKG but since he refused to stay (in a polite way) they are asking he calls first thing in the morning to set up a stress test.
I wish he had stayed tonight. I will be up all night checking on him. Damnit...two months ago I wanted to kill him (so to speak but not actually) ...now I just want to be sure he doesn't die.
Try to keep your stress down now as much as you can.
