Yes: If you are having reflux symptoms, hiatal hernia is a common finding. It can sometimes be detected on an UGI or can be seen if an EGD/upper endoscopy is deemed necessary. How do you tell them - just tell them your concerns, your symptoms, and that you think you have a hiatal hernia and would like to be checked for that. Very simple. Just be honest.

Talk to your GI: Talk to your GI doctor and give your symptoms in detail. If s/he finds an indication to check for hiatal hernia,it will be recommended. HH does cause heartburn.The right upper abdominal pain and dizziness should not be caused by a hiatal hernia. Best wishes.
