Any remedies for hiatus hernia? Symptoms include some burping, bad breath, some reflux.

Any remedies for hiatus hernia? Symptoms include some burping, bad breath, some reflux.

Maybe: First line therapy would be acid blocking medications such as h2 blockers or proton pump inhibitors. If those do not work surgery to correct the hernia may be needed. Given that you are young, i'd consider surgery sooner than later as we are just learning some of the long term issues with chronic anti acid medication. One example is increased osteoporosis due to decreased calcium absorption. ...Read more

I have chronic excess throat clearing, excess burping, no heartburn. Gastroscopy showed sliding hiatus hernia, is Laryngopharyngeal reflux likely?

LPR: Laryngopharygeal reflux is when a small amount of acid comes up into the throat and irritates it. It is a common cause of dry tickle cough, chronic sore throat, lump in the the throat, post nasal drip, phlegm in the throat, and throat clearing. Many studies show it responds best to proton pump inhibitor rx. It is possible you may have this. See an ENT for evaluation. ...Read more

I have no acid reflux symptoms except for I can burp nonstop. Recently I've noticed a sensation of shortness of breath. Hiatal hernia??

GERD: The belching and substernal symptoms with shortness of breath are findings seen in many cases of reflex esophagitis and hiatal hernia. Inflammation of lower esophagus is frequently associated with shortness of breath due to substernal extension of the inflammation. Omeprazole is used to treat these symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux. ...Read more

I have a hiatal hernia and take omeprazole. I am having awful chest and back pain/pressure with fullness and belching. Should I call my pcp?

YES: You should definitely notify your doctor of these symptoms. One form of hiatal hernia allows the stomach to enter the chest alongside the esophagus (paraesophageal.) some patient so afflicted may twist their stomach and lead to serious consequences. So, please, notify your doctor. In the meantime, eat smaller meals, avoid carbonation, and don't recline soon after eating. ...Read more

I have esophagitis and hiatal hernia. I have a irritating burping problem that happens after I eat. Usually a short burp. How do I cure it? Thank you

Medication: If you have known esophagitis and a hiatal hernia then likely you are already are on a medication like Protonix or Nexium (esomeprazole). If not, this kind of medication, known as a proton pump inhibitor, can be helpful. Eating more slowly and smaller, more frequent meals may help the burping after eating. If symptoms can be controlled with medication many times surgery for the hiatal hernia is not necessary ...Read more

I have a hiatal hernia and in addition to upper abdominal pain, burning, burping, etc my lower abdomen is very bloated. Is that common with a hernia?

I have a hiatal hernia and in addition to upper abdominal pain, burning, burping, etc my lower abdomen is very bloated. Is that common with a hernia?

Not likely HHrelated: The GI tract has a very limited # of symptoms to signal its distress--nausea/vomiting, diarrhea/constipation, bloating, pain, fullness, bleeding, etc. As you know, many of these characterize ibs, but are also seen with inflammatory, infectious, ischemic, malabsorptive, and functional disorders. Directed lab work, imaging, biopsies, stool studies are appropriate in excluding non-ibs pathology. ...Read more

44 fem anxty/panic hiatal hernia center chest pain in betw breast reflux burping EKG chest X-ray labs all good. 40mg Prilosec worried about cause?

The hiatal hernia: This type of hernia causes the reflux. If you're happy with your symptom control on the prilosec, it's ok to continue, but that drug causes oseoporosis, pneumonia, and gastric polyps. As young as you are, I recommend you consider having the hiatal hernia repaired by a surgeon, which ends your reflux for good. Also, if you have "asthma", this may be the reflux and an operation can cure that too. ...Read more

What is a hiatus hernia symptoms?

Variable: Typically, small hiatal hernias do not cause symptoms, or may be a contributing factor to heartburn or regurgitation. Large hiatal hernias (paraesophageal) can cause chest pain and pressure, difficulty swallowing, anemia due to bleeding ulcers, and weight loss due to avoidance of food. See your doctor to find out more. ...Read more

Hi. What are the symptoms of small sliding hiatus hernia?? Thanks

None: A small sliding hiatal hernia cannot be attributed to any symptoms. Not even reflux, as many people without a hernia have reflux, and many people with hernias do not have reflux. If the hernia enlarges, it could cause difficulty eating, intermittent chest pain and pressure, and ulcers with/without anemia. Hope this helps! ...Read more
