Chest distress: Your symptoms warrant evaluation of heart, lung and esophageal functions. Ideally a physician takes a thorough history, performs a careful physical examination and orders appropriate tests in order to make a diagnosis. Testing includes chest X-Ray, EKG, treadmill stress test and either an upper gi series or gastroscopy performed by a gastroenterologist. Discuss this with your primary carephysician
