Would you refer this patient?

23 Nov 2017Registered users

A few weeks ago, just after I had gone to bed and was propped up reading a novel, I developed indigestion. After the initial and inevitable paranoid thought:'Oh my God, it’s a heart attack!' I realised that it was indigestion. But what now? I’m the age I am – which is almost certainly older than you, and this was a new onset of indigestion – albeit relatively transient. So should I be consulting my GP, and being subjected to endoscopy?
