| | feels like digestion in groin
hey all. I am really concerned that I have a hernia even though nothing is bulging out. I have had constant pain in my left/groin and upper quads of my left leg. All my doctor has done is an Xray and the pain is getting worse and worse. Anyhow, eventually after the pain first started, several months later it feels like fluid or something is digesting in my groin? Could this feeling be from the fact that I may have a hernia where my intestines got pushed down into that area? I can't take this pain anymore; it's not the fact that it is severe, but the fact that it is constant and is worse when I sit down. Further more everything has been twitching around that area and it has spread to throughout my body. But I dont know what else could be causing the pain. It has put me into an anxiety state in my life. I can't even work out anymore cause I get so exhausted and out of breath. I'm concerned that maybe I have a strangulated hernia though nothing is bulging. Also, I had major surgery when I was very young and had an incision down my abdomen so mine may be weaker than others. Does this sound like hernia to anyone. Do they always necessarily have to bulge out?
