How to Stop Hiatal Hernia Pain
If you have a hiatal hernia, you may be very familiar with the pain eating hot or cold foods may bring. A sudden spasm can send your stomach through the diaphram and cause extreme discomfort. What should you do?
Forget the advice to sit back and relax until it passes. Stand up and stomp. (If you're dining out, you may want to go to the restroom to do this.)
This little maneuver works 99% of the time. If you continue to have problems, a gastroenterologist can advise you if you're a good candidate for surgery.
