Hi there. I'm new on here.
Was diagnosed with a hiatus hernia last year. All started when I thought I was getting palpitations on my left side. Wasn't painful but I knew something wasn't right.
It's like a spasm that happens now and again. I went for heart scans and ultra sound. Was finally sent for a camera down throat to find out what was wrong.
Hiatus hernia was diagnosed. The weird thing is that I down get the acid reflux. I burp a lot and get a burning sensation in my back and right buttock sometimes. I also get pains in my feet.
Doctor says that foot pains are not related.
I've been on all the normal tablets but they don't do anything. I find it comes on worse with stress. My throat feels like it's closing up at times and feels dry.
I feel like I get a gnawing pain in my left side. I sometimes feel really bloated and struggle to bend over without supporting myself.
My energy levels seem to be low at times. I went from cycling 30-50 miles at weekends to keep fit, to now doing nothing because I feel tired.
Does anyone else have I haitus hernia without the acid reflux? My doctor keeps going on about taking tablets to control the acid but I don't have this reflux problem.
