Chest pain

Hi,

My 5 year old son was born with congenital heart disease. At 3 months he had surgery for what turned out to be a PDA. There is however a 'mild' pulmonary stenosis'. From infancy he always seemed to have gastric issues with reflux, and the has been diagnosed with hyperactive airway disease, requiring salbutamol, inhaled steroids, antihistamines. He had T's and A's done last year with some improvement in his obstructive breathing. Recently I noted an increase in the frequency of complaints of his 'reflux problems'. Many times during a meal he has to stop, rub his epigaqstric region,  (is this chest pain versus dyspepsia?) and sometimes a burp will help.Sometimes he vomits. He has not thrived like his twim brother and so while he grows taller he has no lean body mass. I am wondering if his stenosis is worsening or something else is going on. He is due for his annual ECHO next week.

Thanks
JThames
