I believe that I have a hiatal hernia due to the symptoms i have, what can I do to get rid of it? Also, can I do regular exercise i.E. Gym work.

Hopefully you have had an upper endoscopy and xray studies to make an accurate diagnosis. ...Read more

Still eating healthy intake and excercising trying to lose weight to get rid of apnea if its even the cause. Should i avoid pushups  for weight loss?

Keep going: You are on the right path. Keep working on weight loss. I'd encourage any and all exercise, including push ups. Strength training results in increased muscle mass, which does help in burning fat. Weight loss does help improve obstructive sleep apnea and many other things like hypertension and diabetes. Way to go and keep it up! ...Read more
