I was taking Diltiazem, but my cardiologist took me off after the heart cath, stating that nothing is wrong with my heart and
it's just my Gerd. Because of the palpitations, chest pain, edema, and
difficulty breathing while lying flat, I think I want to get a second opinion just in case. My maternal grandmother had CHF, so I am always a little concerned about my heart. My EF is good, but I know that a good EF doesn't always mean you're in the clear.
