    Have you tried cutting dairy and gluten out of your diet?? I would try this, giving each at least a three week trial. It has taken me years to discover that dairy gives me digestive issues. Worth a try.

    good luck

    sorry but it does sound like your hh, unless you have got a gallbladder issue, or your liver?? an ultra sound and an endoscopy will rule out probs at the top end of your tum.

    Has gastritis been mentioned? It might still be you Hiatus Hernia causing pain as well; nurses don't have the same medical knowledge as doctors. You need to see a gastroenterologist to determine if you HH is the cause.

    Hi Jean,

    I have had severe stomach problems for years and still don't have an answer. I've had scans, mri seen a dietitian and still don't have an answer. They have given up on me. Have you had any scans done?
