    Everyday I wake up with stomach cramps, nausea, and a headache. I go to see a gastro on the 17th. When I was 15 I was diagnosed with a hiatel hernia.
    Would the hernia be causing all this? What is going on?

    Or is it more of a OB problem?

    Both, underneath my ribs and lower abdomen. I had an endoscope 9 years ago, and found a hernia.

    I would ask for a ultrasound for any possible gallstone or kidney stones first. If thats clear ask your gastro for another endo or colonscopy.
