CamilleRN :

yes, over time a hiatal hernia can get larger which allows for more food and acid to back up, causing you pain and discomfort.

Treatment consists of... one, or a combination of these three types of medications:
  • Antacids that neutralize stomach acid (such as Maalox, Mylanta,Rolaids Tums).
  • Acid reducers ( such as Tagamet HB),Pepcid AC or Zantac ).
  • Acid BLockers ( such as Prevacid and Prilosec OTC)
In some cases , when medications don't work, surgery may be needed to resolve the problem.
