2. A Sour or Bitter Taste at the Back of Your Throat
Since a Hiatal hernia forms in your chest and esophagus area, you might end up having a sour or bitter taste in your throat. When you have this kind of taste lingering at the back of your throat, you can try gargling, and if it doesn’t go away, you might actually have a hernia. Though not serious, this particular symptom can be quite irritating especially when it interferes with your meal time and the taste of the food you’re eating.
