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.

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.

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

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.

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

I have throat ulcers right at the bottom of my throat and a 5cm hiatus hernia. It is incredibally painful to swallow, what food would be ok to eat?

Herpangina?

Pharynx
If this is new pain in the back of your throat, a diagnosis of herpangina should be considered and an oral anesthetic offered. If this is not the case and the pain is in the throat, you need subspecialist consultation (candida, herpes, other serious illness.) I would be surprised if the 5 cm hiatus hernia was the cause and am concerned about overall health issues. Good luck.

what are the symptoms of hiatus hernia?

Acid Reflux

Hernias
Bad heartburn, fullness/pain in upper abdomen/chest (worse after eating), regurgitation of bitter fluid (especially when lying flat or bending over), sometimes difficulty breathing, frequent pneumonias, asthma attacks. Severity of symptoms depends on how large the hernia is. Most hiatal hernias are small and cause mild heartburn or no symptoms at all.

Many

Hiatal_hernia
Typically, only large hiatal hernias cause symptoms such as difficulty swallowing, chest pain, feeling full quickly, and fatigue due to anemia from ulcers. Diagnosis can be made with an upper GI contrast study. Treatment is surgical repair, best done by a general or thoracic surgeon with experience in laparoscopic repair. Hope this helps.
