Hernia is a curable disease which is generally cause when an organ pushes its way in to someplace where it ideally doesn’t belong. Like when a part of the intestine is swollen in a way that it pushes its way into the hole of the diaphragm which is called hiatus. A person may witness pain near his/her stomach and abdominal area. This pain can also occur in the upper thigh area, belly button or even groin area.
Hernia generally occurs when people may be born with a large hiatal opening. It can also occur due to pregnancy, obesity, continuous coughing and even strenuous bowel movements. So when a person witnesses certain severe pain which at times can be unbearable have to get himself/herself properly diagnosed. Some of the diagnostic procedures for hiatal hernia cure are:
Esophagram: This test is done to assess the functionality of esophagus or the food pipe. To perform this test, a person is made to drink a liquid called barium which coats the esophagus, stomach and intestine area which gives a clear picture in the X-ray if your digestive system is in proper condition or no.
Endoscopy: This is done when a thin tube with a flashlight and a camera is inserted in your throat to order to get a proper and clear picture on the severity of hernia. This will give you on the spot results as to in how bad condition your hernia is.
Manometry: In this case, a catheter will be inserted in your nose, which will pass through your mouth, then your throat down in your stomach. This is again used to determine the severity of hernia and to take next action steps accordingly.
pH Level Test: Generally, this is one of the few basic tests which is needs to be done because an imbalance in the pH level will be one of the few reasons for the intestines to swell up.

Sleeping Position: Many people fail to realize that sleeping portions can affect your organs considerably. It has to be noted that people who have a habit of sleeping on their stomach or on their side can have such problems.
