It is usually caused by a weakness of the diaphragm muscle. You may not have any symptoms with hernia. However, sometimes, hernias may cause acid reflux or gastro esophageal reflux (GERD), which happens when stomach acid backs up into the esophagus.

This may lead to symptoms such as:

a burning sensation in your chest (heartburn)

acid taste in your mouth

chest pain

stomach pain


difficulty swallowing

raspy voice

sore throat


people who are obese and women who are pregnant are at an increased risk for developing a hiatus hernia because decreased abdominal muscle tone and increased pressure within the abdominal cavity may lead to the development of a hiatus hernia.

People who have repetitive vomiting or those who have constipation and strain to have a bowel movement, increase the intra-abdominal pressure when they strain, and this may weaken the membrane.
