So I've been having terrible chest pains from sternum to throat. My esophagus feels swollen and abdomen is tender. I've had bad heartburn before and this is nothing like it. EKG today said my ticker is fine, and I'm thinking given the symptoms this may be a hietal Hernia. I'm having a barrium swallow tomorrow to rule that theory in or out.
My question is, anyone ever have this? Did it feel like intense pressure in your chest like your esophagus was being squeezed?
