Hi, why not try food elimination to see if something specific is causing it. FODMAP is a list of a lot of foods that cause problems for people. It will take more work on your part to do it but the results would be worth it.

@darweshalassi You might ask to try a different PPI medication. Some did not work well with me. Hiatal hernias can cause a lot of acid. Usual treatment when the PPI does not work is a Nissen fundoplication .. but many fail. Mine did and a repair failed. A procedure called LINX procedure has worked well for many people. The best thing to do right now is to ask maybe for a different PPI and work on reducing symptoms by diet. Spicy foods.. acidic foods can make the acid worse. I used to eat nothing but plain white rice for a few days when I had bad acid episodes. My hiatal hernia caused so much problems I had to have a gastric bypass.

My Nissen failed….1 in 6 fail according to Mayo doc.. try eating small meals slowly, chew food really well. Try small quantity Snacks between meals. Take multi-vitamin, gas-x, no carbonated beverages… Ken

Replying to your questuon about a hiatal hernia causing all of your problems I would say most likely. I have a hiatal hernia and have also had the Nissen fundoplication done. Mine has held up well up until the last year and now I am back to having significant issues. I was just diagnosed with Barretts and I'm not convinced that the Nissen wrap slid or is failing. It is causing breathing problems that they say are separate from my asthma. Anyway, my suggestion is to find a surgeon who has high success rate with working on fixing hernias. God bless.

I was diagnosed a year ago. I take a med that is called FDguard. It is for Functional Dispepcia. I eat small meals,and am on a small antidepressant. A lot of us also take propanol to relax the esophagus. Some days are better in fact you will get more days better than not. Good luck .
