hiatal hernia chest pain
I have had a hiatal hernia since the 1980's. It seems to progressively be getting larger and I now have chest pain under my left breast, left arm, back and upper chest and neck pain. It is dull and aching and sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night with the pain. I also have bad acid reflux and take prevacid which does not help any longer.
I do have mitral valve prolapse and high blood pressure which is has been under for about 6-8 years. I had a heart cath about 6-7 years ago and my heart was found to be ok with 10% blockage for my age (68). I do not get the pain on exercise or exertion, just any time it seems to come and go; however, my gastroenterlogist had me take a CT scan and does not seem to be concerned - he just prescribes more medications. Any one out there with the same hiatal hernia pain like mine?
