about 2 years ago I visited the doctor with symptoms of fatigue and palpitations, after a blood test for an overactive thyroid I was told it was anxiety and given beta blockers to control my fast heart rate. I was never fully convinced but accepted it, since then I paid the doctor another visit seeking ways to control the anxiety as I did not want to rely on the beta blockers. I was then refered to a stress control workshop - didn't really help.
When I was a baby I had a hiatus hernia and had to be fed this special milk, I have assumed because of this the heartburn / acid reflux I experience very frequently (around twice a week on average) was normal. More recently this seems to have gotten worse and now the symptoms of heartburn, coupled with a burning sensation in my chest and occasional stomach pain haven't subsided in about a week. Could this be the return of the hernia? Is this perhaps what has been wrong the whole time?
i have just started a new job and so being anxious is quite likely and this is the reason I haven't already visited the doc. I plan to make an appointment for later this week but would like some other opinions.
full list of symptoms:
heartburn about twice a week
burning sensation in throat and chest
struggle swallowing some foods, especially potato and bread
Fast heart rate / palpitations
recently pain in stomach, just under right rib cage
Fatigue / feel week. Especially early mornings.
occasionally my hands shake
occasionally struggle to catch breath
sweating a lot
shivering even though sweating
