It can be a hiatal hernia
I do not know what pethica is, but you could have a hiatal hernia, where your stomach herniates into your thorax. Completely benign. If medicine does not work, I suggest you stay away from alcohol, tobacco, smoked and spicy foods, avoid late meals and sleep with your head rest elevated.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if you have further questions.
Possibly to assess if you have inflammation
Hi again Mahurley2000,
The endoscopy is possibly to examine if you have inflammation in your esophagus, as this may guide treatment. It will also allow for a better determination of the hernia, so that the right treatment course can be planned.
Hope this helps, feel free to contact me again if you have any questions.
