Is this a hiatal hernia?
If so it can cause chest pain
A barium swallow x ray will help to make the diagnosis
Good luck

Can you provide some more informtaion? Is it a hiatus hernia/ traumatic diaphragmatic/ Congenital hernia? How you came to know about DIPHRAGMATIC HERNIA/ (because it is not a clinical diagnosis we need investigations to confirm). What all investigations (Ba meal/ CT scan/ X ray etc) are done.
A diagphragmatic herniea can present with: Breathlessness/ pain/ bowel symptoms like bloating of abdomen, constipation/ burning sensation in chest (heart burns) etc.
Best wishes
