Hi....., The exact reasons why you may develop hiatus hernia aren't fully understood at present. However, hernias tend to happen when the tough fibres that normally hold your gastro-oesophageal sphincter in place stretch. The muscles of your diaphragm may also become more flexible..... Antacids work to reduce reflux symptoms by neutralising your stomach acid....proton pump inhibitors are usually prescribed... Consult Surgeon...
