6. Difficulty Swallowing
When you swallow food, drink, air or even your saliva, it can either be an involuntary or a conscious process. However, you may find that swallowing is quite difficult and that could be a symptom of a Hiatal hernia. Of course, the difficulty of swallowing can be a symptom of other illnesses or health concerns, but if you’ve reduced the list of possibilities, then it might actually be a hernia. Since it is usually located in the opening of your diaphragm, it might actually make your swallowing quite difficult.
