Hello my name is Andrew. I have acid reflux and I have been able to keep it under control until recently I have been under a lot of stress because I recently lost my uncle . I Stressed out so much that I had this warm sensation in the upper middle part of my abdominal area. I got sick all of a sudden. So I went to bed. I was laying on my back asleep, then I jerked myself awake. I moved like when your doing Crunches. When I did that I felt something pull or move or something where the warm sensation was. When I got up the next morning I could barely walk, and I had pain in the center part of my chest. It Felt like it was my esophagus, but I wasn’t sure. I went with my brother that night to go shopping and I could barely stand the seatbelt strap on my chest it hurt so bad. I had a EGD back in October when this happened, and everything was normal. could this be a pulled muscle or a hernia? The pain has let up some, but it is still there.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. These are symptoms of acid reflux and all you need is some antacid, diet lifestyle adjustments and supportive care.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
