Symptoms Of Hiatal Hernia Include Back Pain
Not likely.: Speak with your doctor to investigate other causes of your symptom.
Could a hiatal hernia cause back pain just to the right of the spine about 1 inch below the shoulder blade?
Yes: Yes it could. I would have this evaluated as most hiatal hernias do not cause pain unless there is some other problem. The possible problems could range from an early ulcer forming, to a portion of the stomach or other part of the intestine that is partially/intermittently stuck within the hernia and can't get out when it needs to. See a gastroenterologist or a surgeon.See 1 more doctor answer
Diagnosed Hiatal Hernia. Experience chest/back pain everyday Medicine/lifestyle change not working. Do I need surgery? I don't know what to do
Symptomatic GERD: You apparently are having symptomatic gastoesophageal reflux despite medical/lifestyle changes. The next step may indeed be surgical. I would have you return to your doctor and discuss with him/her your options. You likely need to be referred for a ph study and or a EGD to document the severity for insurance reasons before surgical intervention.

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.See 1 more doctor answer

CT scan 2 years ago showed large hiatal hernia containing most of my stomach. Have severe chest and back pain at times after eating. Do I need surgery?
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.See 1 more doctor answer
I'm 32 yrs old. Had my tubes tied 5 months ago. I have a umbilical hernia. Don't see doc for 3 wks. What makes it worse? And is back pain a symptom.
Umbilical/incisional: Are you saying the umbilical hernia is from the umbilical incision for the tubal ligation? You should definitely see your doctor who did the surgery and follow up on that. You may need surgery to fix the hernia. Ignoring it makes the situation worse. Weight gain makes it worse. If the original surgeon is slow to response, condsider getting a second opinion from another surgeon!
Back pain: Most lumbar disc herniations cause leg pain rather than back pain. Unless the herniation is causing a significant amout of spinal canal narrowing or nerve compression, there may be other reasons for back pain. You cannot rely on radiology reports alone, clinicians that treat spinal problems need to be involved.
Can pain from a hernia come and go from day to day and even switch exact location (i.e. rib pain one day, back pain next, hip/groin next, etc)?
Hernia incarcerated?: Jason--This sounds serious. I don't know what the location of the hernia is, but it could be incarcerated or becoming strangulated. See a surgeon!
