" Interesting. It doesn't hurt me. But I guess it could. A bra would put pressure on the right spot wouldn't it? "

" Yes. The first thing I do when I return home is undo my bra. I'm going to have myself measured for new ones. Maybe I just need a larger size, but I definately feel less pressure when I don't have a bra on. I also avoid tight pants. Actually, I am most comfortable in my pj's. "

" I HATE WEARING A BRA too! I am that age I have gerd and a "big honkin' hiatal hernia' so says the radiologist. ;p

I did buy new bras that are the right size and they hurt worse than my old sprung ones. I don't know what to tell ya...

Definitely wear loose clothing, if your pants are tight and binding, when you sit everything gets squished upward and that is not a good thing.

I was experiencing a problem with acid so I drank a liter of water and jumped off a step hoping all that water in my belly would pull down the herniated helped for a while! There is such a thing as water poisoning so be careful! Drink it all at once. "
