Kerry, your doctor should be able to rule out heart problems, right? Anxiety can mimic heart problems too - have you tried to calm yourself down with maybe some guided imagery music or yoga, deep breathing etc?

I'm really sorry you're having such a hard time. A hiatal hernia can allow the stomach to bulge above the diaphragm and for me, this meant causing a fluttering in my heart. I have an aunt that actually faints, we think because the vagus nerve is affected by her hernia and GERD (vaso vagal syncope).

Did your doctor prescribe any medication for your anxiety?

I also have these symptoms. My doctor said my heart is fine. I have gerd and anxiety, i think they can cause all this. Though i agree this can be the nerve thing
