Can you help me with Hiatal Hernia
My husband seems to have the symtoms of a hiatal hernia which are quite painful. But he also gets pain that radiate down his arms, which is scarry. He has a general doctor, who contributes it all to a possible hiatal hernia. In general, he takes care of himself and has had heart stress tests, ekg's. follow up. All OK. One problem, is my husband is self employed and his insurance has a $5,000 deductible and he's a couple of years before Medicare age. Testing gets very expensive as well as the medications. Has anyone had any tests that are virtual testing, i.e., non invasive, especially for a hiatal hernia? How are they? Also, what has been done for your hiatal hernias? surgery? He is loosing weight because it's too discomforting to eat a lot. He's 6'1/5 and weighs about 210. Any help is most appreciated.
