Calling everyone with a hernia!!!
« on: June 17, 2014, 10:13:57 PM »
Well it all started around Easter pain in direct epigastric area (high middle abdomin) with a change in bowel habbits ( diarriah and some constipation) well it went away for two weeks and came back I have had a abdominal sonogram and regular blood test blood to test liver and a c reactive protien test for inflammation all if which are normal....



I'm still getting pain and pressure but I started meds for ibs and bathroom issues seem to have cleared up..... I've talked myself into having a hiatal hernia and it's going to get strangulated and I'll die!!! Please help it's consuming my life

You're being irrational. I'm sure you already know this.

A hernia would have shown up on a sonogram.

Pain isn't a reliable symptom of hernias. They're often painless.

you're fine op, you didn't mention acid reflux or feeling full

Have you checked for H.Pylori?

I think you're fine though op :)

A hiatal hernia won't kill you.  My dad had one.  My mom has one.  It was suspected that I did, but I think I ended up not having one, or maybe they just never looked for it on my imaging tests when I had them in that area. 

Anyway, it won't kill you.  It's harmless.  My dad's would occasionally be HORRIBLY painful, like heart attack painful, but it would last for minutes or hours and most of the time would be totally painless.  That was the extent of the damage it could do.

I had an Inguinal Hernia when I was 12, I was on the floor in pain crying and had to be carried to the car and into the emergency room. Trust me, you would know if you had a hernia.
