Are you struggling with a bulge in your abdomen, which is very painful, and at the same time, you are unable to get hold of a laparoscopy specialist? Are you wondering if the aching in your stomach or groin could be a hernia? Hernias are very common, and many individuals don't even realize they have one until its visible or has to undergo hernia surgery. A hernia is a hole within the abdominal muscle wall through which the intestine protrudes outwards, often feeling like a lump under the skin.

 

Anyone can be affected by a hernia at any age, man or woman. Numerous patients spend years suffering and choose not to undergo hernia surgery. Through this blog, we would like to shed some light on the signs of hernia.

 

Outlined are seven silent signs you have a hernia:

 

1. Fatigue

Muscle fatigue; weakness in the upper leg and groin area region can be a silent sign of a hernia.

 

2. Dizziness and vomiting

Vomiting is not a hernia symptom; it indicates a more severe condition called incarcerated hernia. This case of hernia requires immediate medical attention as the hernia cannot be returned to its original state.

 

3. High fever

The combination of fever and a hernia indicates a strangulated hernia that is not receiving sufficient blood circulation. Therefore, we request you to call Pelvinic immediately or visit us at the earliest. We can help you by conducting affordable high-tech diagnoses and surgeries using the best, latest treatments and technology.

 

4. Lumps

Lumps are one of the most common and often most ignored signs of a hernia. For example, an inguinal hernia can grow on any side of the pelvic bone area.

 

5. Excruciating pain

Many individuals experience excruciating pain while lifting heavy objects; this is a silent sign that you may have an undiagnosed hernia condition. In a few cases, you may experience this pain while trying to lift a slightly heavy object.

 

6. Constipation & Fullness

Difficulty in passing stools or gas may signal a blockage of the large intestines causing this. Also, it is a clear sign that you should visit Pelvinic to undergo a diagnosis to rule out the existence of a hernia. In certain conditions, a hernia can cause blockage and constipation. Similarly, the feeling of fullness like you had recently consumed a large meal when in fact, the meal was a small snack is the cause of an inguinal hernia. It makes you feel full, bloated and causes pain in the groin area and lower portion of the abdomen.

 

7. Heartburn

Hiatal hernia is likely to cause chest pain and heartburn. A familiar feeling of heartburn is a silent sign of a hiatal hernia. It causes stomach acid to seep into the oesophagus, causing an inflammation that imitates heartburn.

 

To reduce the chances of developing a hernia, you should do the following:

  • Preserve a nutritious diet and control your body weight by exercising regularly.

  • Consume fresh fruits, vegetables and whole-grain fruits.

  • Use proper lifting techniques like bending the knees rather than bending forwards.

  • Quit smoking as it leads to cough, and coughing triggers hernia

 

It is very easy to miss these hernia signs, leading to dangerous consequences or complicated hernia surgeries if not diagnosed and treated on time.
