Hiatal Hernia w/ dry cough and chest soreness

Hi, I discovered that I have a small hiatal hernia back in Nov.'04 with an endoscopy. The symptoms were belching and chest tightness that wouldn't go away, I also had gastritis. I don't really have these symtoms anymore but I have a constant dry cough that seems to get worse after I eat. My lungs also are sore as if they're filled with fluid. My allergy doctor says that this is caused from the acid splashing up into my lungs. He says that taking 40 mg of Nexium will resolve this in time. I just started taking this last week and haven't seen any improvement. Is anyone else having these symtoms? Has anyone tried any natural remedies for this kind of cough/hernia? I hate to be on Nexium for the rest of my life, I'm only 40. Thanks for any advice.

Re: Hiatal Hernia w/ dry cough and chest soreness

I have similiar symptoms and have been diagnosed with acid reflux. I have a pain in my left side under my arm and in my left breast. The pain is also in the center of my chest under my rib cage, kinda where your bra is.
Lately I have noticed a constant cough as well but really didn't think anything of it. I'm waiting on the dr. to call me back as I am typing this.
I'm tired iof being tired all of the time and feeling like I'm 78 when I'm only 38.
Sorry, I don't have any answers for you. Didn't mean to vent in your thread.
