Can hiatus hernias cause gastritis?
I have been diagnosed with a small sliding hiatus hernia and gastritis. Im on a PPI Pantoprazole and the rest of the time Gaviscon and painkillers. These work a bit but the pain keeps flaring up and Im in agony. I know dont know what to do. I think its the gastritis as I dont get reflux as much. I dont know if the pain is the acid not being controlled. Has anyone had both gastritis and the hernia and the pain has gone away? Im finding it hard to deal with. I avoid alcohol,dont smoke or drink citrus. I try to stay away from tomatoes. I do have coffee or chocolate sometimes. Im not sure if Im flaring it up or its the hernia. Has anyone else had a lot of pain with it? Im wondering what might help now as Ive tried many things.

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
