Anxiety: I understand your discomfort with so many symptoms. These symptoms specially stomach ulcer are warning signs of not coping with life. Stresses of relationships unresolved conflicts, stresses of school, work, and finances may be causing emotional turmoil and anxiety please see a psychiatrist for psychiatric and medical diagnosis; and treatment including psychotherapy , medication, and meditation.

Not dangerous: The sensation of something stuck in the throat is common, but poorly understood. It is often referred to as a "globus" sensation. Probably not related to your hiatal hernia or gerd. It is not dangerous at all. Anxiety could have something to do with it, but that can be difficult to control as well. See your pcp for more advice, but don't worry, it won't hurt you.
