Hi there.... I too have a hiatus hernia and since I have been on my weight reduction programme I have found that I don't need to take my medication as often.  I used to have to take 40mg of omeprazole every day but now I find that since I have lost 28lbs I only need to take it about twice a week.

I also have found that bread, cakes, pasta and things like that cause it to flare up and since I have cut these out of my diet I have think this is also helping with the excess acid in my stomach and prevents it rising up into my throat.

At night I always lie on my left side and propped up on two pillows as the opening to the stomach is usually on the right.  

Hope you find a doctor who is more willing to help you.
