I really think I have a sliding hiatal hernia. My symptoms come and go. I mentioned these symptoms in another post, but I'm wondering if my problem is occasionally hiatal hernia. These are the collection of symptoms: heartrate increases constantly (at rest, about 82, but after I eat, about 100-110, I have esophageal spasms, irregular heartbeats, and the most disconcerting symptom is that I feel pressure in my neck and head........like I have too much blood in it and its not draining properly, and I can hear my heartbeat in my ears.
When I tell docs about these symptoms, they look at me like I'm a little crazy. Its real important for me to figure out what this is, as it seems to come with alot of anxiety. One day I'll be fine..........and the next I'll have all these funky symptoms. I have GERD and IBS and Fibromyalgia, but was doing really well this winter.....until the day after Easter, when all these symptoms came back. I'm just trying to make sense of things.
Those of you who have a sliding hiatal hernia........does it ever cause you to feel this fullness in your upper chest/head? I hate it. But I think I could relax with it a little more, if I knew what it was, and that it wasn't a big honkin' tumor growing somewhere in my chest!
Thanks for your input.
