    I have a small hiatal hernia. I get bloating, severe gas and belching, and my upper stomach burns like a gnawing feeling. When I have gas and bloating I get heart flutters. I think I also have gastritis too, so not sure which is causing me these problems

    I also get that hunger pain thing too. Drives me crazy. I feel so hungry but feel sick at the same time

      I get this too! Its weird! I wonder why we get a hunger pain, Ive actually no idea how long I have had it. Does it happen slowly or all of a sudden?!

      Do you get the gnawing feeling high up like in the middle of your body? I too have pains under my right rib and back pain which they say cant come from a small hernia.

    My burning/gnawing feeling is high up. Above the waist and below the bottom of my ribs. ....My stomach. So annoying. I bloat up looking like I am 8 months pregnant.
