• I am concerned with heart disease mimicking digestive symptoms. I have a mild case of LPR (laryngopharyngeal reflux) that I usually treat with natural products. 9 months ago I had an angiogram where an 80% blockage was discovered. It was treated with a Synergy everolimus drug eluting stent. It was done following up an abnormal cardiac stress test as I did not have any noticeable symptoms. I am an avid runner and never had any signs of chest pain associated with physical effort. I noticed that immediately after the stent insertion the LPR symptoms improved. About 5 months later they re-appeared but very mildly.Two weeks ago a relative with a much worse LPR also had a stent placed and she noticed again her symptoms improve immediately after. Is there an explanation for this? I am very concerned that there could be a problem with my stent and the symptoms may be confusing. My cardiologist dismissed any concerns of this nature.
