Yes: Most of the time the discomfort is in the mid upper abdomen. In your case reflux itself would cause similar symptoms. Aside from hiatal hernia, a variety of other medical conditions may account for your symptoms, including but not limited to gallbladder disease, intrinsic gastric/ duodenal pathology or liver disease. Cut on alcohol and monitor your symptoms. If persisting mention them to your doc. ...Read more

I have severe chest pain in lower chest/upper abdomen. I went to ER on Friday / Sunday. The couldn't find anything wrong. Still in bad pain.

Head back to ER: It appears you were evaluated for heart problems and lung issues (pneumonia, collapsed lung, mass, etc). There are other causes for your symptoms that are too numerous to mention, all of which require a more detailed evaluation - with possible consultation by a general surgeon. I would encourage you to go back to the ER and request further testing, stating your symptoms have persisted . ...Read more

Continue working with your doctor to make the diagnosis and implement effective treatment. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Cannot diagnose: Without seeing and examining your friend and having access to what has been done, and the actual type of injury, it is impossible to diagnose. Things to be considered are traumatic pancreatitis and aortic aneurysm with leakage, along with the possibility of coronary artery disease. They need to be evaluated beyond the er and a good internist might be the way to go. Hope they are better soon. ...Read more
