Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Welcome to Ask a Doctor service!

I understand your concern and would explain that your symptoms could be related to a hital hernia.

A panic disorder can not be excluded either.

Anyway, I would recommend performing a fibrogastroscopy in order to exclude a possible hiatal hernia.

Further tests may be needed:

- thyroid hormone levels
- an ambulatory 24-48 hours ECG monitoring in order to examine your heart rhythm trends for a prolonged time and exclude possible cardiac arrhythmia
- complete blood count for anemia
- blood electrolytes for possible imbalance.

Hope to have been helpful!

Wishing all the best,
