Hiatal Hernia Pain

As you may already know hiatal hernia pain is the scariest kind of pain you’ll likely ever experience.

It’s a lot easier to avoid hiatal hernia pain than it is to try and stop it once it starts.

You’ll instantly know you’re having a hiatal hernia if suddenly after eating you can’t bend, sit or lay down, breathe or swallow. The undigested food you just swallowed will come up and sit in the bottom of your throat until you vomit it with a kind of weak, painful death shutter.

Normally your stomach can heave up food, but with a hiatal hernia, you’re trapped and so is your food . . . the pain is frightening. It’s a slow motion choking pain that cuts off your ability to swallow or spit up, that’s why it’s so dangerous and painful.

The undigested food is being wrenched up through the Lower Esophageal Sphincter (LES), a kind of seal or flap that keeps the contents of your stomach separate from your pain sensitive throat.

Your hiatal hernia pain could very well be the last thing you experience in this world unless you know what to do and that’s still no guarantee either.

The pain isn’t only physical, it’s emotional too. I’ve seen the bulging eyeballs and look of terror in my best friend’s face when he almost died from hiatal hernia attack.

What happens is your stomach isn’t digesting food, usually because of lack of stomach acid and enzyme power. This causes a painful bulging as gases form from the undigested rotting food.

The pain a hiatal hernia causes begins with the pressure forced upon all your organs, including your heart.

Then the diaphragm muscle cramps upward and forces your stomach and contents through a small opening. This is the worse pain as your stomach actually migrates up above this LES seal and bulges in your lower neck . . . the pain of a hiatal hernia is only there to spike your adrenalin so you do something fast before your choke or have a heart attack.

To stop the pain jump up and down, stand on your tip-toes and drop to you heels until your hiatal hernia spasm and pain stop. Then stretch your hands over your head, relax and go see a doctor for a stomach acid test as soon as possible.

You were born to heal,
