Merits further eval: This merits a return soon to your Dr to report recurring symptoms. A careful history, EKG, chest X-rays and blood tests usually will yield the cause of symptoms. Occasionally additional testing might be necessary, such as a chest CT scan or a CT coronary angiogram. These tests could disclose a pulmonary embolism or coronary problem. Occasionally, a stomach or esophagus problem might be diagnosed
