    Hi Sandy,

    It is common for a hiatal hernia to cause a burning sensation because it can cause acid reflux. Read more on hiatal hernia and its symptoms in our complete information guide here. It's best to check with your doctor, however, since we're not really qualified to diagnose conditions on this site. Only your doctor who has your complete medical history can make an accurate assessment of what's causing your pain and treat it appropriately.

    I hope you're feeling better soon!  You might also find these other links useful as you're dealing with this.
