what to eat w/large hiatal hernia? everything causes pain

i would love some advice that anyone could pass on to me. i have a large hiatal hernia that is presumably the culprit, causing me horrible pain when i eat, just about anything. i am having an upper GI endoscopy later in the week. had one before that was supposedly ok, but a new doctor is going to try it again. this was in sept. last year, and has progressively gotten worse. my biggest problem at the moment is that i am getting such horrible stomach aches. i've been taking prilosec, but my doctor says i cannot take it till after the test. i guess i'm to have a Bravo monitor for two days, and you cannot take this kind of medication for a week before.

my goodness, i thought i had stomach aches before! since i stopped taking it, any food makes me ill. last night i ate a small bowl of chicken noodle soup, and threw up three times. i still have a sore throat today. i'm not even hungry any more, but i crave food so bad, it makes me cry lol.

has anyone had a similar experience? have any suggestions what to eat?

good grief...i can't even eat chicken noodle soup. that's what you're supposed to eat when you're sick! i feel extremely sorry for myself lol...and i love food, so this is really miserable.

Your body lacks magesium - it is in every cell and lacking can cause muscle spasiums as well as cramping.

thanks for the reply. i have read that before, and tried taking supplements. i've also taken two different medicines for stomach cramps, and those don't help either. so i'm still not quite sure what to do. but thanks
