I recently went to a GI doc and was told that I have a "mild" hiatal hernia. I have been suffering with acid reflux for several months now and was wondering if my hernia could be the cause. I am currently taking Nexium 40mg after switching from AciPhex several weeks ago.
The meds have helped but I still suffer reflux on a daily basis...what should I do? Thanks

Possibly you may need yet another med (PPI) to try like Protonix. Are you staying in an upright position after you eat for 3 to 4 hours? Following a GERD diet?

Since your hernia is mild, possibly another med would help you more?

Hypothyroidism (1953), diabetes type 2 (1976), hypercholesterolemia (1989), gastroparesis (1990), FMS (1995), and GERD (2006).

FMS: Prozac, Xanax, Lortab.

Other meds: Nexium, Cytomel, Detrol, Reglan, Novolog insulin, Novolin N insulin, Bumex, Lipitor.
