I occasionally have symptoms of heartburn and/or one or another type of reflux, which seem to mimic those ascribed to heart attacks. (Once, while on vacation, I did go to the local ER, resulting primarily in nearly a year’s worth of insurance hassles.) These symptoms don't seem to occur frequently enough to warrant daily medication. Knowing how symptoms can vary and that a good diagnosis may be as much great art as great science, do you have a suggestion for those of us who have learned that what would appear to be an MI is almost certainly not?
