I can't understand why the Doc would say that breathing difficulties are not associated with hiatal hernia. I have the sliding type hiatal hernia. When I eat more than one-two cups of food and try to exercise or just walk I have difficulty breathing. Therefore I plan all my exertion when I have only liquids in my tummy which go through the stomach faster. I figure part of the stomach slides up into the chest so that the lungs have less space to expand when I take a breath.
It takes a while to get a handle on all this so keep plugging away at the challenges.
