The other day I was doing some heavy deadlifting with a belt and on my last set I felt this big gas bubble come up into my throat to the point where I had to drop the weight and it almost felt like I was choking. Past couple days I have noticed a strange feeling in my throat and I have been having some heart burn and burping more than normal which are all classic symptoms of a hiatal hernia.

Has anyone else had one of these? Did you do anything to resolve it? How did it impact your lifting?

I've never had one to my knowledge. Why don't you see a doctor?

It has been about a week now and seems a lot better. I am guessing if I had one it was small or resolved itself enough. A doctor won't do much good, it seems the only thing they can do is operate and that is only for severe cases. Going to deadlift tomorrow so hopefully it doesn't cause an issue again.
