A couple of weeks ago I woke up on Sunday with heartburn (which I never have) and a dull pain right above my stomach. I did not feel well at all. It would vary in intensity and sometimes make me nauseous. It was alarming to say the least. I also had no appetite and couldn’t sleep laying down. I thought/hoped it would just go away. But by Tuesday night it was still there and feeling worse. I went to see Dr. Karen and after asking many detailed questions she felt that it may be a Hiatal Hernia. She then used her hands to gently move my stomach back to it’s correct position and the pain disappeared! She then recommended things I could do, like a deep breathing technique, to keep my stomach in its proper place.

Thanks so much Dr. Karen!
