A HH is a protrusion of your stomach up into your Esophagus...caused by a weakened ring at the cardiac spincter. Keep your liquids clears and non-acidic. Eat bland (non-spicy) foods, no greasy nor fast foods. If your have difficulty swallowing your gastroenterologist may want to do a dilation of your spincter. Ask him for a acid reflux diet. Marshmellows...never heard that one b4, barley juice neither. Tums comes in a roll and is an anti indigestion tab...if you use them and they work, you just may have acid reflux vs HH. Good luck on your appointment...GI John/RN
