I have been dealing with a hiatal hernia for years. Usually when I’m going through something emotionally challenging that little sucker pops up in the worst way. My symptoms include chills, shortness of breath, chest pain, back pain usually at T-5, burps, bloating in stomach, gas, nausea, fatigue, headaches, and, for obvious reasons, irritability.
