Complex answer: It sounds like you have a good start in treating your symptoms.I assume an endoscopy was done. Especially if there is a family history of heart disease at younger age, this should be considered. Also you should look at your gall baldder and liver function as well. I would not advise more medication, rather more investigation at this time. Avoid all alcohol, Ibuprofen like meds/aspirin if able.
