Our expert says:
It is not possible to diagnose if you are suffering from a hiatus hernia (mantelvliesbreuk) over the Internet. To do this, you MUST have a medical examination so that the doctor can check your symptoms and arrange for tests to be done to confirm the diagnosis. If you should have a hiatus hernia, the doctor will advise what treatment you need (for example muscle relaxants to make the oesophagus relax so that you can swallow plus antacids, or an operation to repair the hernia). Psyllium husk if NOT the right treatment because it is used for constipation, not a hernia. So PLEASE contact your gp as soon as possible because if you have a strangulated hernia you may need fast attention to prevent serious complications.
Take great care
