I was prescribed lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) for pain. I have hiatal hernia, the heartburn is bad, ?

Lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) bad idea. Lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) should not be use for hiatal hernia pain. If you have a big hiatal hernia you may be masking pain from an ulcer or low blood flow to the stomach. If you have just heartburn then once or twice a day Nexium (esomeprazole) is an excellent choice. An endoscopy should be done to check for ulcers or infection with a bacteria called h. Pylori. All else fails then surgery is a good choice.

Are the symptoms for chrons diseace the same as they would be for lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) abuse?

Completely different. Lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) contains Acetaminophen which can damage the liver, and hydrocodone which can suppress respirations in high doses. Crohn's disease is an inflammatory bowel condition which creates abdominal pain, diarrhea with blood and mucous, and can damage the bowel to the extent it may need removal. It also has potential effects on the liver, but differently from acetaminophen.
Use non-narcotic med. If you know you have crohn's disease (cd), you should avoid narcotics as you will get used to them and your body could create pain to get the drug. There is no relationship between the symptoms of cd and Lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) abuse. Too much Lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) could give you nausea, but that's about it. Liver function could be impaired by lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen). The bottom line is to get off Lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) as it will cause trouble.

Are the symptoms for Crohn's disease the same as they would be for lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) abuse?

No. Lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) is a combination of hydrocodone (like codeine) and Acetaminophen (tylenol). Codeine-like drugs cause constipation due to slowing down intestinal mobility. With crohn's disease, the intestine is inflammed and symptoms often include chronic diarrhea, and weight loss. Both constipation and chronic diarrhea can cause intestinal pain and cramping, though, but the problems are quite different.
