Hello I'm Dr Chip

Can you please tell me exactly what you're worried about?

i am worried in case it gets trapped,i havent been sick but keep having anxiety about if i do vomit i now this sounds irrational but it is worrying me
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
i cant call at the moment
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 months ago.

The phone call offer wasn't from me and you don't have to accept it

Nothing at all to worry about here

The term sliding hiatal hernia means it easily moves back and forth across the diaphragm

It can't get stuck even it you get a bug and start vomiting

In fact I've never had any of my patients with that kind of hernia get it stuck

Please let me know if you need any more information
