I was diagnosed with a hiatus hernia about a year ago but I was suffering with severe heartburn for about 3 years. I have taken Omeprazole 20mg and then I was given 30mg as this wasn't helping my symptoms I was on this medication for about 2 years it wasn't helping so I went back to the doctors and they then gave me esomeprazole 30mg which helped for about a week and then I went back and they told me to take 2 and she finally referred me to the hospital where I had a endoscopy and that's when I was diagnosed with a sliding 3mm hiatus hernia. I am now on Lansoprazole 20mg but I am still getting discomfort whenever I eat. Even if its a free from product I feel like I don't digest food properly and I am constantly bloated I feel discomfort most of the time in my upper stomach. is this normal I'm 23 and if I forget to take my tablet once I cant eat for a few days as my appetite just goes as my heart burn is horrendous. My doctor said I'm too young and my hernia isn't severe enough to require surgery. Any advise? Thank you .
