    Gary I had the same symptoms when I was diagnosed with gerd and barretts. I am not saying you have neither it may just be reflux. Could be an ulcer. Don't worry. Keep calm. You are doing the right thing and having an endoscopy. Keep calm eat 4 hours before bedtime and eat alkaline foods ( non acidic check google plenty of ideas). Keep well mate

    http://www.drrtannenbaum.com/index.php?p=162678 i am hoping that this link works. I have had similar problems and if you do discover you have a hiatal hernia which I do you may find that article very helpful. It gave me breathing problems as well and calls inflammation in my Suffolk us whenever the hernia slid up into the diaphragm. Are used the swallowing water technique to great success. Do not worry too much acid reflux causes lots of things that mimics heart problems but it isn’t usually.

    i know it can be a worry but i am sure they will be able to advise after your endoscopy . meanwhile just eat the bland foods that you are doing or ones that help to heal the oesophagus… Sorry about the spelling in the last message it came up with Suffolk as I was talking into the microphone ha ha . Figs are good and so is Almond milk or coconut water which is very soothing . it could be your gall bladder playing up or inflamed but the experts will let you know. When you eat try googling to see if the food is high alkaline and not acidic and good luck with the investigation ,regards Jan

    hi Gary, yes i have the same symptoms. burning in stomach aswell as acid reflux whoch goes away with food but comes back shortly after. i have small hiatal hernia and im perfect BMI with healthy active lifestyle aged 26 but nothing seems to help me. Omeprazole doesnt do me much good at all.

      the specialist would have seen the hernia if he went in makes no sense that he couldnt see if there was a hernia i would get a second opinion

    I get chest pains and also feel like someone is sitting on my chest and i cant get enough oxygen. I have had all kinds of test and all is good. Are you over weight? after you eat do you feel full to the point you want to puke even if you havent eaten alot? if you do than you could have a Hiatus hernia. I have that also. its nothing serious you either take meds or make a life style eating change.
