I am usually on the Crohn's boards, but have a question that might be better suited to these.
I was dxed with having a Hiatal Hernia about 16 years ago and have been on meds to control the acid out put ever since. Last week(tuesday) i woke up short of breath and on Wednesday started having chest pain. finally saw my PCP yesterday and was told my Hiatal Hernia was the cause of my problem. He uped my Nexium doseage and gave me something for stress. came to work this a.m. and googled for some more information. for the problems i'm experiancing it calls out for surgery.
my question is this, has anyone here ever experianced shortness of breath and chest pain and was able to control it without a surgical repair?
any input would greatly be appreciated!!
