Hiatal Hernia


That is what was revealed when I had the scope done on June 30. Stress makes them worse. They cause acid reflux and regurgitation. Yay. Both of which I have. So yeah, it fits. It’s highly possible I was born with the hernia. Just peachy and beautiful. So I have a standing order for Nexium […]

Holy Cow!
