How do i know it's a hernia?
Occasionally, a hernia causes no pain and might be found during a routine physical, but more often than that, they are easy to recognize. Hernias feel like a local, dull ache. You may see a soft bulge in the area, along with tingling, pressure, or feelings of weakness at the site.
how did i get a hernia?
Think of a hernia as the inner tube of a tire. When the tire becomes damaged, the inner tube is pushed through the opening, creating a bulge. If you feel a sudden pain in your groin or abdomen, as though something has torn, you might be right.
