I too have a hiatus hernia. Three weeks ago I started this pain/pressure up and down on my sternum., and the gas I was belching was incredible. I went to the ER, and they did an ekg and said that something was not right so I was referred to a cardiologist. Also my blood pressure in emerg was sky high. They started me on blood pressure pills and 81mg aspirin.
My visit to the cardiologist showed on the stress test that my target heart rate was reached to quickly and again the ekg showed something.I am now going back for a halter, and eco, and a stress myoview.
But a few days ago I had that same thing happen to me. I was cleaning off the side of the house and got so hot, so I had a Coke. Well that set things off again. I tried eno, then sone ginger ale, the a tylenol.
It's really freaking me out, because I am having all of these symptoms along with menopausal crap which is reall interferring with my life.
This creates anxiety symptoms, so I don't really know what cothers me
I want to blame most of it on the hiatus hernia especially the chest discomfort. It does not seem to matter what I eat it bothers me. I do not get heart burn, but my lips burn...weird.
This pain in my sternum was like a cramp...do you get this?
