Hiatal hernia most often goes without any symptoms, but in some cases it may present with stomach pain, heart palpitations or acid reflux in the esophagus.


Answer by  jems (194)

In many cases, hiatal hernia has no symptoms, especially in the case of small hernias. But larger hiatal hernias can be accompanied by chest pain, heartburn, problems with swallowing, burping, hiccups, pain in the chest or upper abdomen and nausea. The larger the hernia, the more likely that symptoms will be experienced.
