3 months ago I was sitting and watching tv I got this burning sensation in the upper part of my stomach do to stress. I got real nauseous and went to lay down. After awhile I felt well enough to roll over on my back, just as I was about to doze off I jerked real hard and leaned forward. I felt something move across my upper abdominal area from the left to the right under my rib cage. It felt tender to the touch so I thought I pulled a muscle. So I rolled over on my right side. Soon after I could feel heat coming up from my stomach which was really strange. I got up the next morning and had trouble walking. The back of my mouth was blood red. My mouth felt like it was on fire. Can jerking like that cause a sliding Hiatal hernia. I still have tenderness in my upper abdomin when pressed on. The back of my mouth has cleared up a little bit but not completely. What did I do. I was completely fine the night before. Did I damage something by jerking like that. Haven’t felt the same since.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Jerking doesnot cause hiatus hernia. I would suggest you to take proton pump inhibitors and domeperidone for two weeks and look for the response.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
