I'm 26, for a few months i have had really bad bloating and excessive gas from my stomach sometimes with mild stomach pain or acid feeling in stomach. i thought maybe I had a stomach ulcer but a few weeks ago i noticed i was feeling short of breath slightly, like asthma but there was nothing wring with my airways. After reading on the internet I am wondering if it is a hiatal hernia as some of the symptoms seem to fit, and this problem is not going away by itself. I am wondering if this is possible and if a doc can help with this easily?

According to your symptoms (bloating, belching, stomach ache, acid reflux...) you could be experiencing hiatus hernia but other stomach disorders (gastritis, peptic ulcer...) are also possible.

You need barium enema or gastroscopy to confirm hiatus hernia. If hiatus hernia is confirmed the final therapy is surgical intervention.

You can consult a gastroenterologist about your problem.
