GERD will cause chest discomfort but doesn't cause STT changes in TMT. Changes during recovery phase is very significant finding. I would advocate u to go for coronary angiogram, find out there are blocks or not. If u have significant blocks then do a gastroenterology work up as u vil need blood thinners during Angioplasty. But if u have normal angio then u forget about the heart and do a Gastro evaluation nd get it treated
