I've also just been diagnosed with Hiatal Hernia and GERD. the chest pain is dreadful. Doc says that my hernia wouldn't be causing the chest pain as it is small, but I have my doubts. I came across a website that calls the Hiatal Hernia the "great mimic" because it can mimic many disorders.
My chest pain feels like fullness, pressure and tightness that radiates around to the middle of my back. Doc is giving me 25 mg Elavil thinking it may relive the chest pain. Oh, and I take 40mg protonix 2x day
