Hiatal Hernia anyone

Oh gosh now I am having lots of pain in my chest I bent over earlier and it felt like a lump pushed up in my esophagus. Now I am having pain and difficulty swallowing at the base of my esophagus. I thought perhaps I have a hiatial hernia I have gain a lot of weight in my belly over the last 2 years plus I lift and pull for a profession. The pain is horrible right now. Maybe gallbladder ruptured. I had a bad attack just like this over a year ago chest pain at base of breastbone) and was very sick. Ultrasound show little sludge in gallbladder, no stones. I was given IM Reglan and pain killers. It subsided.

This is awful. i just don't know if gallbladder can do all this?? Its hurting right through esophagus to back bad.

Re: Hiatal Hernia anyone

I don't think the gallbladder would cause those type of symptoms except for the vomiting that accompanies it. It sounds like it could be related to a hiatal hernia or it could be related to reflux. I've had problems with both over the years. I had several episodes last year that I initially thought might be related to gallstones (I'd had an episode many years before with similar symptoms) but my doctor thought were more likely to be reflux related. When I had my first major gallbladder problem in September, it was in a similar area but was a very different experience.
