I have all of the symptoms of hiatal hernia mentioned here plus the horrible feeling of burning right at the rib line across my abdomen when I drink or eat something with alot of acid. This is not a good thing.

I have been diagnosed with a hiatal hernia and it is 6cm in size. They have me on Zantac and Omerprazole. I have been bloated for approximately 4 years without any relief. The doctor thinks but doesn't know for sure what the cause is. He says it maybe due to the size. I do not have any pain just bloating and gas which is horrible. They have me on a diet but still unable to lose any weight.

I have a Hiatal Hernia. I have all off the symptoms you all describe. I'm not alone!!!!!. I have recently, after advice from a friend, started to drink lots of Cranberry Juice. I was told it really helps and it really does. I am still on my medication but it has taken away that horrible feeling of I was about to be sick away. I have heard that yoga is good also, as better posture helps. So I will be giving this a try.

With hiatal hernia, I experience constant painful indigestion after eating fruits and vegetables. I have acid reflux and take Nexium daily.

Upper middle chest pains, heartburn, indigestion and a lot of belching. Need to eat slower due to food not going down.
