Our expert says:
A stress ECG (exercise whilst doing the ECG) is more accurate to detect ischemic changes in the heart. When you consult your GP for a stress ECG, ask him/her to request a barium meal and or a gastroscopy, as you might have gastritis (caused by smoking and obesity). Gastric irritation can mimic cardio-vascular disease.
