In brief: Requires testing

A hiatal hernia can be suggested by symptoms.
The only way to know if you have a hiatal hernia is through testing - a barium swallow or upper endoscopy/egd are two ways to test for it.

In brief: Hiatal hernia

Upper GI x-ray and an EGD.
The EGD is done by a gastroenterologist. Very common tests which can usually make the diagnosis of a hiatal hernia.
