hital hernia?
alvarado10 posted:
I have discomfort/pain just under my middle breast bone like a knot that you can feel. I get worse by laying down or sitting forward and get some relief my walking around. Also I get this daily chest pain/heartburn along with acid reflux like symptoms. I've only been on protonix for 1 week.

The pain is not servere but is bothersome but I can still go about my daily activities. I'm due to see a GI specialist in a month. Is this a sign of hital hernia?

Hi again! I just responded to your other post actually, I didn't know you wrote this one too at first. I have a hiatal hernia as well, it comes along with GERD and acid reflux symptoms you seem to be describing here and your other post. I haven't had any symptoms of my hiatal hernia... years ago I got a really noticeable "bulge" in my stomach below my breast bone, which is still there.

What medications do you take to help releive your symptoms? Protonix has helped but doesnt take away the discomfortI have under my breastbone nor chest pain.
