Hiatal Hernia


  Can a hiatal hernia be a causative factor in having chronic daily bloating regardless of the content of ones diet?  Have surgical corrections resulted in such conditions improving or disappearing as a result?
______________
Dear Ron, Hiatal hernias are quite common and are per se not the cause of symptoms.  Many people with hiatal hernias also have esophageal reflux of acid causing burning chest pain.  Daily bloating can result from excessive swallowing of air or from gastric dysmotility, impaired emptying of your stomach.  Your physician can determine if additioal tests are needed to evaluate these pssibilities.
