Started taking Tylenol PM once a night. Started with 2 Geltabs and just wiped me out at night but noticed no problems with hernia. Then dropped it back to 1 geltab and the hernia is alot better. I take one at 8pm each night and am able to live now so try it. Jim

I've been suffering from nausea and stomach pain. Also a heavy, gnawing sensation in my sternum.
Had the endoscopy and everything looked normal and healthy but they say I may have a small hiatal hernia.
I noticed no one here complains of nausea so I'm wondering it that is from something else.

I have had nausea for over 2 months and was just diagnosed with a hiatus hernia and acid reflux. Getting follow ups with doctors and finding out what needs to be done and looking for a good surgeon has very difficult.

I read where you can drink a pint of warm water (warmth settles the muscles) then stand on the tips of your toes, then drop abruptly onto your heels. The weight of the water in your stomach will make the stomach drop quickly, pulling the bubble of the stomach that has moved into the hiatus back down.

Also I read where you can lie on your back, draw your knees up with feet flat on the floor. Then take your hands, palms away from you, with your thumbs touching, dig your fingers into and upward under the ribcage, then push downward toward your feet, helping pull the hernia down.

Try Tagamet or Prilosec. Do not eat anything acidic. Look up acidic foods on the Internet and avoid them even if they dont make you feel sick.

Last night at 1:15 AM I was awakened by an awful stabbing pain in my chest. I do have a hiatal hernia, but I have never felt this kind of pain before. Then the vomiting started - 6 times! I thought my chest would explode. When I laid down, the pain got worse, so I sat in a chair most of the night, and walked around a lot staying close to a sink. Can't even drink tea this morning. Was wondering if honey might be soothing. Cooked sensibly all week - then blew it with "Sloppy Joe's last night. Paying dearly for a stupid, quick dinner decision:(

I have occasional 'crises' when I can't swallow food or even water. It can be terribly distressing, with thick fluid build-up and even difficulty breathing. One day out of desperation I tried a remedy my dear old Italiant grandmother used for absolutely everything: hot water and lots of sugar.
I managed to get a little sip down, then another, and presto-- it was over!
Since then I have never had a 'crisis' that this rememdy couldn't clear up virtually instantly. My 'crises' are often triggered by grains of rice, dry bread, or fibrous vegetables. Especially rice, even a small fork full. Hot water and sugar. A godsend!

Hi Mary,

I am in Wexford and am interested in finding some Irish people with this problem. I am 38 and lately feel like I have an obstruction when swallowing which I have been advised is a reflux episode?

Been diagnosed with hiatal hernia and Barrett's esophogus. I'm worried about the Barrett's. Does anyone know if you get rid of the hernia will Barrett's get better? Is there a cure for Barrett's?

Hi Kevin,

I also suffer from nausea and take motillium for that, especially after 1/2 glasses wine at weeekends. I also thought it was something else like an ulcer

Just found out today that I have a Hiatal hernia.. Talk about pain.
Sometimes I have problems breathing when I lay down at night.
Someone told me to sleep with like 4 pillows so Im almost sat up.

Hi Kat,
A pillow wedge or acid reflux pillow helps. Easier than trying to sleep 3/4 ordinary pillows.

Yes I have some nausea with my hiatal hernia. It hurts more when I eat. I'm trying to avoid surgery by removing all acidic foods and drinks for at least a year

Yes Lynn we can exercise with the hernia. Walking, running, cycling all ok, but avoid swimming,diving or things like Yoga where you will be bending over. You need to keep your chest above your stomach to prevent reflux.

Sounds like you had a gallbladder attack. Try some simethicone (Gas X) and stay away from greasy food, potato chips were my trigger! I feel your pain, it's horrible! Hope this helps you!
