Thank you to everyone that took the time to respond. I really appreciate any and all input. I suffer from a lot of stuff and always trying to look for any sort of comfort/quality of life by reducing any or just little of my pain I suffer in all regions of my body.

I don't have this problem, but I do have Acid Reflux. With having IBS it causes a lot of discomfort for me. I suffer from the constipation part.
If your in a lot of pain, and no meds are working, you might have to get the surgery. I would do more reading on it and read what other people had to say about the surgery.
I am praying for you and try to find a quiet spot to meditate.

I've never heard of anyone having a hiatal hernia repaired as it will be too invasive and is more trouble than it's worth
