Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board certified consultant with over 30 years of experience.
I understand your concern.
Well as you describe,your symptoms are more likely suggesting indigestion.
You should take OTC Zantac/Emetrol.
Also star metamucil and mylanta gas.
You should take OTC Motrin.
And start a probiotic.
Eat a liquid to semi-solid diet.
Signs and symptoms of a strangulated hernia include
Nausea, vomiting or both.
Sudden pain that quickly intensifies.
A hernia bulge that turns red, purple or dark.
Inability to move your bowels or pass gas.
As you are passing gas and there is no severe pain so chances of strangulation are less.
Still try such self care measures in the meantime.
If your symptoms'll persist or get worse over the time then visit ER.
Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
