My husband has been having chest pains with shortness of breath for the last 8 months. he had a cardiac cath with 2 stents being placed about 6 months ago. No improvement. He has had a total of 3 stress tests-nothing found, an ekg each doctor visit-all okay, lung function tests and x-rays--all okay. Has seen a total of 6 doctors for the chest pain and shortness of breath and all that has happened is more medication (total of 11). The last doctor said to look into gastro tract? He never has had any issues with heartburn/digesting food, etc.. what do we do from here? Go to another doc? We are completely frustrated.
