Yes I have one but can't tell it is even there unless I haven't eaten for a long time and go to bed empty stomached, then I wake up super heartburn feels like a heart attack.

But I don't take anything for it just try to keep something in my stomach always, maybe it will help u too.

Far as treatment not sure, sorry doc. never told me when he found it during small bio. wht to do for it so I just do the non empty stomach and has helped alot :)

Good luck !

I have a hiatal hernia too that they found doing my endoscopy/biopsy for celiac. The gi doctor didn't treat it; I have pretty bad GERD and he gave me nexium for that. In the hospital, they started me on Protonix for the Gerd and it has helped a lot. I also generally follow the GERD diet, although I do eat pepper, and take a probiotic.

Now I'm wondering if I should have asked more questions. The impression I got from him was just to ignore it. (But he also was a pretty crappy GI.)

If you google hiatal hernia, you get the sites for Mayo Clinic and Medline on i

A hiatal hernia should not produce an outward bulge. It is the result of the stomach protruding upward through the diaphragm. Depending on the severity you may have reflux symtpoms, or may have no noticeable symptoms at all. I would expect that it can be seen with a barium swallow or ultrasound if the tech is specifically looking for it. Mine was missed during those tests, but found during my endoscopy.

Because you can feel a bulge, I would suspect you have a different type of hernia, and reflux meds will have little effect on it. Do see your dr for proper diagnosis and treatment. :)

I'm 28 and have a hiatal hernia. It causes major issues every now and again--GERD, stomach pain, gastritis, etc. It only "flares" up when I eat certain foods or when I'm under a LOT of stress. That's when gastritis kicks in. Once I get the culprit food out of my diet and relax, it will go back down. I can feel pressure in my upper abdomen when I bend over when it is flared up, which is typical when you have a hernia. You may try bending over with a full stomach, if you have pain and pressure, then it's likely a Hiatal hernia. Mine does not buldge outwardly, however, and agree with another post that said your might be a different type.

For those who do not want to take antiacids, I use licorise root, and it really helps--more than any prescription med. I get it from Mother's Market in the digestive aid section, it's chewable and does not contain whatever ingredient it is that may cause high blood pressure.
