Hi there, so glad I found this forum!!!
I've been suffering with symptoms to the point of being unable to concentrate anymore.  I have been diagnosed with hiatal hernia, meniere's disease, and GERD.  All without proper tests as I would have to travel over an hour to get to them and I am a borderline agoraphobic so won't leave town.
I have a burning lump in my throat, burning in the chest area between my breasts sometimes radiating to my back, burning in a centralized area right where my ribs meet.  Now all this burning is constant although sometimes it burns less, then more, then less again. 
I used to have nausea which is horrific to me since I am an emetephobe (severe phobia of throwing up).  I'm taking one 75mg zantac every 6 hours which pretty much takes care of the nausea and am doing exercises that keeps the vertigo and dizziness at an acceptable level (symptoms of the meniere's disease), but the burning is still there.  I tried taking Pariet (aciphex) but it made it worse for some reason.
I'd like to know if anyone else has these symptoms and how they live with them.

hi my name is Rick.and was reading your post and thought that sounds like me .i have had this burning for two months now.i mean hot to touch it happens when i wake in the doctor said to take two more nexium 40 mg .i was taking  one in the moning and one at supper time so i called the doctor and he said to take two in the moring and i take the other two before i go to bed that helps with my acid reflux.but the burning starts at my belt line up to my chest and around to my back and even down to my knees .some times it just burns at the top of my stomach and aroud my belly button its cool .and then at the waist line it buring.and sometimes not.and sometimes i have no burning at all .for several hours.and then it kicks in .no matter what drug i take nothing stops this burning when its really bad i put a cold towel on my stomach.and do this for hours untill it cools off. and i have pain in my stomach the doctor put me on traumadol 50 mg and this helps three times a day so i dont know what causes this.i dont know if this is the problem your having.if i find anything new about this i will let you know. good luck Rick

Thanks for answering Rick. This is really debillitating isn't it? It stops me from being able to eat properly so I feel dizzy and lightheaded all the time too.

Thank goodness I have a GREAT boss but even he's going to lose patience with me having to leave work often.

Good luck to you too!!
