Hi I have a small hital hernia in the cardio oesophageal junction can u tell me what possible symptoms one could get thanks?
GERD: Patients react to gerd and symptoms of hiatal hernia in different ways. Anxiety is generally not a symptom but esophageal spasm from the acid or tiny bits of acid aspirated into the airways could give the sensation of anxiety. I would recommend a history and physical examination by primary care physician in a trial of a proton pump inhibitor. If the anxiety persists after this medication trial then it may be a separate issue. ...Read more
Hello I'm on omeprazole for acid reflux I have a small hital hernia too but I'm getting flare ups from time to time is this right?
It happens: Omeprazole works well for many patients with reflux and small hiatal hernias. In some cases it is not enough and additional treatment, or even surgery may be needed. Be certain to keep a log of the frequency, timing, position, relation to meals and severity of your symptoms. This will help your doctor to help you. ...Read more
I had small sliding hiatal hernia 4/12. 3/27/13 I was hit from behind in car accident with seatbelt on 4/2/13 had gastric bypass surgery; found large paraesophageal hernia. Can the accident cause this?
It is possible: It is possible, but difficult to know 100%. It would be helpful to know how large the hernia was at the time if you gastric bypass, something your surgeon would know. You should see your surgeon anyway to help guide you on what to do about the paraesophageal hernia. Hope this helps! ...Read more

I've had a 2cm hitial hernia for 2 years, I'm 96 pounds and everytime I eat it feels like food gets stuck. Medicine doesn't help. Is surgery an option?
One option: Alexis, surgery is an option, however you must weigh the risks and potential complications of undergoing surgery before proceeding. A 2cm hiatal hernia can certainly cause problems with eating, you certainly need to rule out other GI issues before having an operation that is irreversible. Continue working with your GI doctor, or ask for a referral to an esophageal specialist first to be sure. ...Read more
Is a hitial hernia dangerous to one's health? Many times I have difficulty taking a deep breath and it can cause anexity sometimes for me. I was told over 30 years ago that I had this type of hernia but it seems to have flared up symtoms. I do not have ac
I: I do not know that your breathing symptoms are from a hiatal hernia. Acid reflux is a common symptom of a hiatal hernia. Aspiration of stomach contents into the lungs, more often when lying down sleeping, can cause breathing or asthma-like feelings. Many people have small hiatal hernias that do jot cause problems. Rarely very large hiatal hernias can cause sudden illness from twisting internally, or can rarely bleed or cause anemia. It sounds like you need to seee your doctor for an examination. ...Read more
However why?: Of course you can but the questions is why to take it? You should be on a regimen of antiacids to prevent stomach acid to come up especially night time. To long exposure can be bad to your esophagus besides it can injure you vocal cords too. You should be under the care of a gastroenterologist who should check the size of the hernia and the status of your esophagus. ...Read more

I have acid reflux and a newly found small hiatal hernia, if I am careful can I still shovel snow?
Yes: You can do all of your normal activities with a small hiatal hernia without fear of making it worse.

Why might a small hiatal hernia cause pain and pressure a few hours after sleeping/laying down? Pls don't say it won't because it does.
I have a "small" hiatal hernia, and lately have had pain and swelling in the xiphoid process and around to my back. Could these be related?
Doubtful: The esophageal hiatus (the hole in the diaphragm through which the esophagus passes) can stretch out to allow some or all of the stomach to go into the chest is located just in front of the spine. It would not cause swelling near the xiphoid process. Maybe excess gas in the stomach or colon could cause that. It doesn't sound specific to any one diagnosis. Hope this helps! ...Read more
Can Small sliding Hiatal Hernia rlly be reversed by exercises shown over the net.? No GERD symptoms at all. Jus scared it night grown in future? Ty.
No: First of all, don't worry about a small asymptomatic hiatal hernia. It is very common and does not require treatment. When you read about exercise and hiatal hernias it is to lose weight since obesity can be associated with hiatal hernias and GERD. Asymptomatic hiatal hernias are not treated, GERD symptoms are. ...Read more
Recently diagnosed with a hiatal hernia. I've lost 35 lbs in 6 mo. Can only eat small amounts at a time, but feel hunger pains frequently. Is it normal?

You may need to see a gastroenterologist and or a surgeon dealing with hiatal hernia. The weight loss is very concerning and it appears more is in order for you diagnostic wise and treatment wise. Get more evaluation. Luck. ...Read more
I have a 2cm hitial hernia and was told that at that size it shouldn't hurt, However I'm 96 ibs and eating kills me, is it fixable via surgery at 2cm?
Diagnosed with small Hiatal Hernia. No GERD at all. What are the chances it grows and gives me GERD in future. 23yo 145lbs. It hapnd frm Hevy lifting?
Yes It can develop.: Heavy lifting doesn't always have too much to do with hiatal hernia as opposed to a groin hernia. A small hiatal hernia can certainly get bigger. The GERD or the reflux can be prevented or minimized by paying attention to your lifestyle in avoiding the late or the large meals and also in using an extra pillow when needed. Watch your weight. ...Read more

Hiatal hernia ; more: Simplistically, a sliding hiatal hernia is a common upward bulge of stomach (with acid) thru the diaphragmatic hiatus (hole in diaphragm thru which esophagus ; stomach connect). It may appear larger or smaller at times, since (unless fixed in place) it is a dynamic structure. On the other hand, the cause of ulcers is quite variable--h.Pylori, medication, caustics, burn ; head trauma, shearing... ...Read more
No: What is of importance is that symptoms that may suggest a hiatal hernia may be cardiac in origin.
