CHIEF COMPLAINT: Multiple problems, main one is chest pain at night.

HISTORY OF PRESENT ILLNESS: This is a 60-year-old female with multiple problems as numbered below:
1. She reports that she has chest pain at night. This happened last year exactly the same. She went to see Dr. Murphy, and he did a treadmill and an echocardiogram, no concerns for cardiovascular disease, and her symptoms resolved now over the last month. She wakes in the middle of the night and reports that she has a pressure. It is mild-to-moderate in the middle of her chest and will stay there as long she lies down. If she gets up, it goes away within 15 minutes. It is currently been gone on for the last week. She denies any fast heartbeats or irregular heartbeats at this time.
2. She has been having stomach pains that started about a month ago. This occurs during the daytime. It has no relationship to foods. It is mild in nature, located in the mid epigastric area. It has been better for one week as well.
3. She continues to have reflux, has noticed that if she stops taking Aciphex, then she has symptoms. If she takes her Aciphex, she seems that she has the reflux belching, burping, and heartburn under control.
4. She has right flank pain when she lies down. She has had this off and on for four months. It is a dull achy pain. It is mild in nature.
5. She has some spots on her shoulder that have been present for a long time, but over the last month have been getting bigger in size and is elevated whereas they had not been elevated in the past. It is not painful.
6. She has had spots in her armpits initially on the right side and then going to the left side. They are not itchy.
7. She is having problems with urgency of urine. When she has her bladder full, she suddenly has an urge to use the restroom, and sometimes does not make it before she begins leaking. She is wearing a pad now.
8. She is requesting a colonoscopy for screening as well. She is wanting routine labs for following her chronic leukopenia, also is desiring a hepatitis titer.
9. She has had pain in her thumbs when she is trying to do fine motor skills, has noticed this for the last several months. There has been no swelling or redness or trauma to these areas.

1. Chest pain. At this point, because of Dr. Murphy’s evaluation last year and the symptoms exactly the same, I think this is noncardiac. My intonation is that this is reflux. I am going have her double her Aciphex or increase it to b.i.d., and I am going to have her see Dr. XYZ for possible EGD if he thinks that would be appropriate. She is to let me know if her symptoms are getting worse or if she is having any severe episodes.
2. Stomach pain, uncertain at this point, but I feel like this is probably related as well to chest pain.
3. Suspicious lesions on the left shoulder. We will do a punch biopsy and set her up for an appointment for that.
4. Tinea versicolor in the axillary area. I have prescribed selenium sulfide lotion to apply 10 minutes a day for seven days.
5. Cystocele. We will have her see Dr. XYZ for further discussion of repair due to her urinary incontinence.
6. History of leukopenia. We will check a CBC.
7. Pain in the thumbs, probably arthritic in nature, observe for now.
8. Screening. We will have her see Dr. XYZ for discussion of colon cancer screening.
9. Gastroesophageal reflux disease. I have increased Aciphex to b.i.d. for now.
