    Hiatal Hernia
    Mrs_Robinson98 posted:
    Lately, I have been having some unexplained fluctuations in my stomach. It feels like it did during the times I was pregnant and the baby would kick or move. The last time I mentioned it to my OB/GYN, I was pregnant. However, I don't think that is the case this time because I had my tubes tied and have had a recent cyst removed along with my right ovary. I was told that I have a hiatal hernia by my mother. She said that I was born with it. Could it be the cause of this abornmal abdominal movements? And if so is there anything that can be done about it?
    DECEMBER55 responded:
    Not quite sure what you mean by abdominal movement? Gas? I was diagnosed with a hiatel hernia about 20 years ago - after I literally opened my mouth and a acidy content came out quite forcefully. My first thought was a ulcer - went iommediately to Doctor, tests were done to confirm hiatel hernia.
    Mrs_Robinson98 replied to DECEMBER55's response:
    It's not gas. It feels like when I was pregnant and my son would kick within the womb.
