I'm wondering is Reflux & Hiatus Hernia the same thing?
As I have asthma & reflux & may now also have Hiatus Hernia as was rushed on Wednesday morning to see my doctor as I had chest pain & stomach pain this started just as I went to have my breakfast but never did. the dr did an ecg of heart which is very good & my oxygen levels were good too I was terrified thinking was my heart as in excruiating pain.
Hes put me on (Generic brand Somac 40mg once a day) Pantoprazole.
Hiatus Hernia does run in the family. I'm glad I dont get the stomach cramps now like i did on Wednesday.
I'm a little overweight & know I have to lose it & I know the foods I cant eat & not eating 2-3hrs before I go to bed.
I have to go back to the doctor on wednesday for another check up & see if the tablets are helping.
Has anyone else got Reflux & Hiatus Hernia.?
I would like to know some more info on Hiatus hernia dont fully understand it have looked on the net.
