Hello. I am experiencing several unpleasent symptoms for some of which neither me nor the doctors have a definite idea what they are caused by. Two years ago I had sickness problem for about two month and never got to see the doctor back then. Since then the sickness and pain in upper abdomen kept coming back every few months or so. I used to actively do sports but then about a year ago suddenly after any physical exercise i started feeling extremly tired and got a sore throat. After a while the sore throat began to be constant and i was unable to do any exercise. I went to the doctor and after many test they came up with a reflux caused by a hiatal hernia. I am treating it with antacids, diet, elevated bed,... now. All well, but I still get sicknesses and dull pain in upper abdomen every few weeks now. Plus the most irritating of all is I can't do any exercise. The doctors don't know why, but each time i do something physical even for like 15 minutes i get this pain in my upper abdomen and get extremly tired, the fatigue lasting for few hours to few days. If i talk a lot i get sore throath. Any one got any experience with this kind of problems and could they be linked to hiatal hernia or could they be a part of another problem. I feel sick most of the time. Any help appreciated.

  • It sounds like GERD. The sore throat is worrisome; you should see if you can go in for an upper endoscopy.

  • Have you been tested for celiac disease? Lyme disease? Were your liver/pancreatic enzymes normal?

  • Upper abdominal pain and fatigue after exercise - check out thyroid disease, especially hypothyroid. Could be a possibility since exertion intolerance is one of many symptoms.The sore throat could be your thyroid acting up.Read at this site for extensive information:http://www.thyroidmanager.org
