Heartburn: Not all hiatal hernias are symptomatic, but can explain symptoms if present. Commonly have heartburn, sore throat in morning, maybe even chest pain (from esophagus). Gerd (reflux disease) may even make asthma worse. See your doctor. Treatment usually starts with acid-reducing meds, with further studies like endoscopy or radiograph ordered at your doctor's discretion.
