Shortness of Breath with Hiatus Hernia

Hi everyone,
I was told about a year ago that i have a small hiatus hernia. This was picked up during an ultrasound scan for something else.

I used to get the usual symptoms of burning and pain but recently i have developed new symptoms.

I wondered if anyone else has these symptoms and whether the hernia can change size. Maybe this could be the reason for the new symptoms which are shortness of breath, its a feeling like i am not getting enough oxygen. It is worse when i wake up in the morning after lying down. I also notice my heart racing and feel extreme tiredness sometimes.

Its weird how a small issue can cause such symptoms.

Thanks for taking the time to read this post and i hope some of you answer.
