Could a hiatal hernia cause back pain just to the right of the spine about 1 inch below the shoulder blade?

Not likely

While anything is possible, it is not typical to have right sided back pain from a hiatal hernia. If you have a very large hernia, it would be possible, but men of your age rarely have that large of hernias.

Dr. Mark Kuhnke answered:

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

Omeprazole
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.

BE SURE YOU RULE OUT CARDIAC ETIOLOGY FIRST. DO NOT ASSUME YOUR CHEST PAIN IS FROM THE HERNIA.

I had a hiatial hernia removed but I am having shoulder and back pain. What could be causing it?

See your doctor

Problems like these can only be correctly handled by your doctor in person. He/she needs to listen to you, perform an examination and possibly run labs or other tests. That's the only way he/she can find out what's going on and what to do about it.

Dr. Tracy A. Berg answered:

Hiatal hernia treatments. Any non-surgical advice to ease this painful condition?

Acid reflux

Open-uri20130209-30296-ttsruh
Stomach acid refluxing back into esophagus is painful. So avoiding acid stimulation and overfilling your stomach will help. Alcohol, and tobacco drive acid production. Also avoid large fatty meals, carbonated beverages, and lying down after eating (stay upright for 2 hours). Check in with your doc to consider anti acid medication and referral for scoping/EGD. Tums, over the counter, work well.

I am 3 months post op from the RNY bypass. I have noticed my xiphoid process is swollen and painful to the touch. Is it a hiatal hernia?

No, but...

Hiatal_hernia
This is not a symptom of a hiatal hernia, but may well be an incisional hernia. You need to present this to the surgeon who performed your bariatric procedure, preferably asap!

Dr. Barry Rosen answered:

Can a large hiatal hernia develop a smal hard knot eel in the distended adbominal area that burns and is painful to gentle touch? Is this ok?

(K)NotUrHiatalHernia

Open-uri20120827-27145-sn5ded
A hiatal hernia is an enlargement of the normal opening in your diaphragm thru which the esophagus passes; it is internal and nonpalpable. The knot you are describing MAY be an ABDOMINAL WALL (ventral) hernia (especially if it's in the midline, at belly button or upper abdomen). I recommend you see your primary care doctor for an examination of this "knot".
