I have been diagnosed with: GERD, Acid Reflux, IBS, weak stomach valve and a hiatal hernia (upper GI 3 months ago). I am still trying to find out if I can exercise with the Hiatal Hernia. Push ups and cruches? Called my doctor and the nurse was going to get back with me but did not. I have been exercising since 12 years old.View Thread
I have the same, went to the ER twice in 3 years. I was told at the ER it was a gallbladder problem but gallbladder turns out OK after tests. I have been diagnosed with: GERD, Acid Reflux, IBS, weak stomach valve and a hiatal hernia. I am still trying to find out if I can exercise with the Hiatal Hernia. Push ups and cruches? I have changed my diet much like yours. I have been given a lot of tests but quick no answers. Pantoprazole seems to help better than OTC meds, if that helps. I am going to post about exercise now as my Doctor doen't seem to want to call me with an answer.View Thread
