Heartbeat fast, numbness, pain in hand, indigestion, hiatus hernia. Work under pressure. Reason?

Yesterday at work I had a fast heartbeat - I could feel the thud. I had a pain a bit like cramp in my left arm which then seemed a bit numb like when you have been sitting on your arm. I alsoo had indigestion but I have a hiatus hernia. I was very tired at home and went to bed early and am very tired at work today. However I am a head in a difficult school so am under pressure most of the time . I am 57

I have gone through your query and understood your concerns. In patients with hiatus hernia the symptoms you have mentioned are common but you need to get ruled out from cardiac causes too. Try to have an ECG to rule out other cardiac causes. For indigestion take gelucil or tab.pantop. Thank you.
