What Pain Killers Can Be Taken For Hiatus Hernia Which Is Giving A Lot Of Pain

Answer

I agree with Robichris that the pain felt from a hiatal hernia is due to the reflux. My concern though is that if the pain is new, it's very important that any cardiac causes of the pain be ruled out.

Unfortunately, pain killers themselves often make reflux worse due to the irritation they cause to the stomach. It's a short term gain/long term loss sort of situation and you can very quickly wind up with more pain due to them.
