Ok back in October I was on a high antibiotic. I have acid reflux, but had no symptoms or issues. The antibiotic and stress caused me to get this warm feeling where your esophagus meets your stomach. I got really sick, and my stomach got this heavy I went to bed early. I felt well enough to change positions. So I turned over on my back. Still had the heavy feeling in my stomach. Just as I was about to doze off asleep. I guess my body relaxed because I jerked and came forward alittle bit when I did I felt a pop where your esophagus meets your stomach. It felt tender so I thought I pulled a muscle but when I rolled over I could feel heat coming up from my stomach. My mouth began to burn and my throat has stayed red and irritated. I have had countless test done except for a swallow test and nothing has been found. I have constant abdominal pain in the area where I felt the pop. My reflux has been worse every since. Is this a hernia? I’m at a loss and in so much pain. Help

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i think its acid reflux. hernia could be the cause but workup will confirm the hernia. Let your gastroenterologist plan some work up to decide what it is and how to proceed.

Take care
