Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
I understand your concern.
The symptoms mimic two conditions. Gastritis and pancreatitis.
Gastritis is more common because you have a hiatal hernia.
Please take antiacid medications daily for 15 days.Use antacids after food.Take small non spicy diet at regular interval.
De-stress yourself and avoid exertion.
If the problem persists a USG whole abdomen is required.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Do not worry we are there to help you out.
Have a nice day.
