Take thyroid medication daily. A hiatus hernia is protrusion of stomach into thorax. Diagnosis is made by upper GI endoscopy. Prevacid is lansaprazole which is probably given to you for hiatus hernia. Hiatus hernia can cause dull pains in the chest, shortness of breath, palpitations and dyspepsia

In most cases however, a hiatal hernia does not cause any symptoms.
For rest of your symptoms you have to meet gynecologist.
