"A hernia occurs when one part of the body protrudes through a gap or
opening into another part. A hiatal hernia forms at the opening in your
diaphragm where your food pipe (esophagus) joins your stomach. Part of the
stomach pushes through this opening causing a hiatal hernia.
Most small hiatal hernias don't cause problems, and you may never know you have a hiatal hernia unless your doctor discovers it when checking for another condition. But a large hiatal hernia can allow food and acid to back up into your esophagus,
leading to heartburn and chest pain."
My doctor prescribed medication and I am feeling MUCH better now. My doctor also ordered an echo cardiogram, which I completed last week, to make sure nothing was going on with my heart. I will get the results this week.
I regret being away for so long...but I'm back!!! I did manage to be creative through it all. I will share in my next post.
