Mild hiatal hernia if symptomatic and troublesome then medicine should be tried if still no response then surgery is done .so as you say you feel pain than its not recommended to stop medicine but you can try changing your food habits - like small frequent meals, avoiding oil, spice, alcohol, smoking etc.
