Is this hiatal hernia pain or what?

Posted By Darlene on September 08, 1998 at 08:49:37:







For the past two months, I have had pain in my upper stomach area where my diaphram meets my stomach.  This is a strange pain....sometimes it's better when i eat food.  I can usually feel it throbbing like something is inflamed.  I've had the barium swallow test and it revealed a small hiatal hernia.  My doctor tells me that there are usually no symptoms associated with small hiatal hernias.  Sometimes the area across my upper stomach and diaphram is sore.  I am taking prilosec to control the stomach acid.  Could this pain that gets better when i eat be associated with a hiatal hernia?  Could the area inside where the hernia is be inflammed?  If it is inflammed, what could i do to reduce the inflammation and feel better?  My appetite hasn't been affected.  Your help would be appreciated.
