Anyone know?

If I could have a hernia.

I know you cant diagnose here but anyone with one might just be able to say if my symptoms may be a hernia.

I have reflux, have had for a couple of years now, been on Lansoprazole etcc and seemed to work for a while.

Now for the past couple of months Ive been getting breathless, even on a short walk, then some days I can walk for ages and feel fine?

The breathlessness seems to be coming from my upper stomach rather than lungs, Ive had a chest xray last week and that was fine.

Ive been back to docs and he's given me Ranitidine which to be honest arent going to work as they are really just Zantac.

So could it be possible I have a hernia?, doc wants me to have another endo if it goes on much longer.

Any help appreciated, its so frustrating wanting to walk like I used to, silly thing is I sometimes want to run just to see if I get any worse but darent incase I collapse!

Thanks.

Re: Anyone know?

It could well be a Hiatal-Hernia.
I have one and when it plays up I get really short of breath.
Another symptom I have with my H.H is belching/burping. An endoscopy should show up a H.H it did mine.

Thanks for your reply, wouldnt a hernia showed up last time I had an endo?, it was two years ago and they did a biopsy at the same time, just came back as acid reflux tho.

Mine showed up on my second endoscopy.
The first one they suspected H.Pylori and took a biopsy for that.

Re: Anyone know?

Can't they find out hiatus by barium meal x ray, if detected than proceed for endoscopy. Reduce weight if over weight, don't bend after eating rather eat standing,sleep with two three pillows to keep your body tilt so to stop reflux. Avoid hurry, worry and curry. Don't keep your stomach empty eat some thing in between meals, that means more small meals than few large meals. Your lipid profile should be normal, if raised than get advise for statins. Breathlessness also linked to cardiovascular system. Wish you happy recovery and non invasive drug free life. Bb
