After whiplash from a car accident, 12 Aleve a day was prescribed and taken for many weeks to combat pain from the injuries to neck, shoulder and back. The abdominal pain was severe, and repeated vomiting ensued that had blood in it. The Primary Care doctor suggested an endoscopy and biopsy, where a hiatal hernia was discovered, but negative for h. Pilori or ulcer. Can severe gastritis cause a hernia, if no previous gastric symptoms existed prior to taking 12 Aleve a day in a 23 year old, with no other medical conditions, not taking any medication, normal weight, non-smoker, non-drinker, college student with no sport activities?
