Does anyone get emotional after an episode with your hiatal hernia?   Yesterday I had belching, nausea headache (usual symptoms) but I was also crying and yawning alot.

    I cry a lot as well when I have an episode.

    I feel so helpless and depressed.

    I keep asking myself if I ll ever be able to enjoy life again.

    I try to pray when I m in that zone. I find a lot of comfort in prayer.

      Thanks Christelle

      Its so helpful to know I’m not alone. I too find strength in God.

      You definitely not alone. How long has it been since you found out you had HH?

      Been having symptoms for a little under 2 years but diagnosed beginning of this month. And I still don't seem to find a way to manage my chest pain and gas build ups. It's so depressing.

      I ve been on PPIS and antacid but the chest pain is constant.

    I miss my occasional glass of wine as well...such a boring life!

      I’ve stopped alcohol and chocolate 😕   I enjoyed an occasional drink and loved my chocolate.  Do you have problems thinking clearly when you have a flare up?  

      I found mylanta with simethicone usually relieves the bloating.

      I take symethicone for bloating too and YESSSS my thought are all over the place at times. I really can't control them. I thought that had something to do with nerves . I ve been thinking of seeing a neurologist.

      Do you recon HH could be the cause?

      I think its caused be the HH interfering with the vagus nerve.  I can’t get my doctors to admit to this though. I’ve come to that conclusion through research and ohers xperiences.

      Always check with your doctor to let him rule everything out.  

      Im looking into vagus nerve imbalance/ hiatal hernia syndrome; in interesting read.

      Have you considered surgery?

      I ve read about the vagus vein as well.

      And unfortunately doctors don't seem to give us enough clarity on the relation btn the 2.

      And no I haven't considered surgery. My doctor suggested I watch my diet and apparently that alone can help me manage the symptoms.he also mentioned that the op only has an 80% success rate which he s not confortable with.

      If in another month I still don't feel better I am definitely seeking a second opinion.

    Today I decided to have a glass of wine. I hope I don't regret it tomorrow...has anyone tried having a little alcohol with hiatal hernia?

      Suprisingly i had no symptoms after the glass of wine. I did not go crazy of the bottle,so I think drinking in moderation is ok.

      I haven't had any serious complaints for a few days now and I pray it stays this way.

      How have you been keeping?
