thanks for responding to my question on hiatus hernia. Were your endoscopy results normal and is so what explanation does your doctor give you. Are you on meds for your hernia, if so which ones. Do you get nauseated from this condition. My rib pains are chronic for the last 3 months. Pain is felt all day and night.(at times really severe). I'm due for an endoscopy as well. I did an upper gi last month and everything was normal. Maybe it's gas built up. I'm one confused patient. By the way I'm 31 years of age, I'm from Toronto, Canada, I have 2 boys aged 2 and 4 and suffer with this condition for about 8 years. Talk to you soon, Tes P.S. Muscles are probably the culprit here!
