I am Mysticdoc, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to help you with your concerns.
Sorry to hear about your symptoms.
These symptoms are not inguinal hernia related since there is no increasing swelling or tenderness.
The cramps and nausea are likely intestinal in origin.
IBS is the likely cause.
Given the location, this is likely intestinal.
Stomach ulcer is not likely since it is not limited to upper abdomen.
You can try restricting your diet to cooked veggies only, fruits without much fibers for easier digestion.
Avoid dairy products.
You can resume probiotics daily.
Also, adequate fluids can be helpful.
Gas and bloating should improve with these changes which will in turn help with your symptoms.
Now, there is a medication called simethicone ( GsX) over the counter.
You can try that before each meal to reduce gas and bloating which can cause random generalized pain.
Does not sound concerning now and you may wait till your next appt.
Thanks , I just wanted to make certain it wasn't the hernia. I am going back to the Dr next week , so I guess it can wait till then.
I don't want to wake up with a strangulated hernia.
no this does not sound like one.
