GERD symptoms, constant burping, shortness of breath and difficulty in taking a deep, fulfilling breath, can these be hiatal hernia symptoms or some lung issue? Had an ultrasound one month ago, which showed a tightening of esophagus otherwise normal. Do ultrasound show hiatal hernia? Or are there some other kind of tests to diagnose it?

Major problems are constant burping and now difficulty in deep breath. Whenever i try to take a deep breath it feels as my stomach is creating difficulty, some kind of pressure i guess. And don't get that satisfying, fulfilling feeling deep breathing brings, hope you understand what i mean. Like oxygen is missing, something's missing.
My doctor thinks it's anxiety but i believe this is what's giving me anxiety.

And i've caught myself breathing with mouth from previous few nights, i wake up at night and find my mouth wide open. Sleep apnea, perhaps? Or perhaps the suffocation makes me try to breath from mouth during sleep. Resulting in more bloating.

hiatal hernia can be dx via endoscopy, upper GI barium study, esophageal manometry.
