    I have the same as you, sliding hiatus h and IBS. I had pain in my oesophagus two years ago, lost about a stone in weight and don't get that much pain. Did not want to loose the weight I did,  but the food recommended for the condition does make you loose it. I get the occasional pain in back on the left just below shoulder blade. Usually when I have eaten the wrong thing especially alcohol. I do miss eating whatever I like though. Have you discussed this with your GP. I hope you find out soon what is causing the pains.

    I have upper back pain, chest under brest bone heaviness/pressure, breathing problems and rib pain as well.  Now, no Hernia. I do have mild reflux on my esophagus and the back of my throat/vocals and mild inactive gastritis.

    Hi Maria, this is me down to a T and have also had US and CTs. Ive been under 3 GI's one a private one and nobody has any answers for me. Do you find it difficult wearing a bra or anything tight around your middle. I made the mistake today of trying to wear one as i want to start wearing little summer tops and have been in agony ever since. I find Peppermint tea does help slightly when it is really bad.

    Im sorry i cant give you any answers but sometimes just knowing that you are not on your own can be some help x

      Thank you so much. May I ask do you get right sided pain and round and under ribs. This is the worst for me. Yes, I have seen the drs and had the ct etc. No answers all clear

      Hi Maria,

      I have pain always on my right side - chest, ribs and right shoulder blade. When the pain is really bad I have pain down my arms too.  I have had 4 endoscopes all with different results - one diagnosed a small hiatus hernia and the last one barretts and so now I am really worried!  One doctor told me it was psychosomatic!  On and on and on it goes.  All this is enough to make anybody stressed! 

      My advice to you would be to watch what you eat - no spicy foods, chocolate , coffee, tomatoes etc etc.  Eat little and often. Raise the head of your bed.  If you search the Internet there is lots of advice out there it's a case of finding what suites you. This forum has helped me enormously. Keep mithering doctors.  I hope we all find some answers.  

      Best wishes,

      Lynne

    Yes my pain is always right sided or after wearing a bra in the centre aswell. 2 CTs and 2 US's have come back clear. Doctors keep saying its stress thats making me so bad but i keep saying i wasnt stressed before the pain. Ive been going at this for 2 years and still no further forward. I dont see an end in sight

    I dont think I can help you much on this one but can I ask how you know you've got a hernia. On some days I get a pain below my ribs which hurts quite a lot for a few seconds and then comes and goes but just feels uncomfortable. When I first had it about 20 years ago I had scans and xrays and they told me I had IBS.IIn the intervening years it's bothered me on and off but I have long periods when it disappears.I think if I'm very tense or excited it seems to get worse.

    Hi Maria

    I have a Hiatus Hernia and so called "Silent Reflux" and have painful throat just about all of the time and recently pain in my right shoulder. It would appear that some how all this is related but no matter what I do I cannot seem to get rid of the problems even though I have stopped drinking coffee and alcahol and I am reasonably careful as to what I eat. Looks as though we all need the help/advice of someone that really knows all about this type of illness.

      Hi,  funny this should become active thread again as I am once more in the middle of a flare.  I seem to get this when I have been very stressed.  I have pains as before but also as far down as a few inches above and to right of navel.  Also feel tired and heart races which I have been told is the vagus nerve being  affected by the h.h. had another abdo u.s. last week all clear.  Does anyone else have pains as far down as that, it is never below navel.  My last flare did subside though so there is hope but I feel I will always get these flares

    I have a small sliding hiatus hernia too and I am very tender under both shoulder blades and lower back since the doctor changed my meds from omeprazole to pamtoprazole which I have stopped taking, do you get lots of sour saliva constantly, I get it 24/7, I am going back to doctors in two weeks as not happy 😢

      Hi Lynn

      My flares come and go but I have to be so careful what I eat My ibs is bad at the moment and I still have the rib stabs and acid I have had a sore throat recently for 6 weeks which has just gone, all due to reflux

      Drs have not been much help and just give you ppis which dont work for me

      I dont eat tomatoes chocolate, peppermint ir drink coffee. All things I like. I find manuka honey soothing . I dont mind you asking at all, that iswhy we are all here
