Hiatus hernia often causes heartburn and abdominal issues. In a few cases, it may also hamper the blood supply to the stomach, which is very harmful. It is best to get it diagnosed and treated to avoid such symptoms. The doctor may prescribe some medications, and in a few cases, may suggest surgery.
