3 weeks on Zoloft (sertraline) generic. Having chest burning pain with heartburn. Went er. Told EKG changed. Did blood test. Doc said heart is fine. I am worried?

See ans. If "chest burning pain with heartburn" started after you began Zoloft (sertraline), (sertraline) this could be some sort of side effect. Discuss lowering dose or alternate med with prescribing doc. If symptoms occurred before Zoloft (sertraline) generic, see your pcp to get checked for medical cause of heartburn. Doctor sent you home from ER reviewing your most recent EKG plus blood work.That's good news. Hope this helps.

Stomach or heart. Valvular heart disease, although possible, is less likely unless other symptoms appear. Seems most cardiac tests have been done to rule in heart problems. To evaluate for valve problems, one would check an echocardiogram (ultrasound of your heart). Are you compliant with your GERD medications?

For you - yes. The incidence of lung cancer for someone 21 years of age is essentially zero. I remember reading some where that the risk of a 30 y/o person dying from lung cancer over the next 10 years is 0. Chest xrays are an excellent screening tool. They will miss some small percentage of lesions because of size and/or location. The most important thing you can do is stop or never smoke. Read more...

Heart beat. You may be noticing a forceful heart beat but with no cardiac disease or abnormality of the rate or rhythm in view of your negative or normal testing. Forceful heart beats can occur with anxiety, stress, alcohol,caffeine, high blood pressure, anemia or nicotine use. Also focussing too much on your heart beat aggravates the sensation. If you feel stressed, consider stress management therapy. Read more...
