Hi. I have chest pain that comes and goes. It is relived by burping. I have had several ecgs and an echo that we're all fine. Very scary when I get it.

Neither of these tests "rule out" coronary artery disease and/or ischemia as a cause of your chest pain. A stress echocardiogram is warranted depending on other risk factors. Second, that your CP is relieved with "burping" suggest GI causes: GERD, heart burn, achalasia perhaps. SEE A GI medical doctor too! ...Read more
