PAIN WHEN I URINATE,COUGH OR STRECTCH ARMS BACK BEHIND ME, NOT A SEVERE PAIN JUST WONERING IF I HAVE A HERNIA
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 7 years ago.

Hello,

An hernia will give a bulge on cough or straining. In the absence of bulge, just pain will not point to hernia. Pain during these activities you mentioned denote muscle sprain. Warm compresses, local analgesic ointment (cream), abdominal binder, anti-inflammatory analgesics like Motrin (Ibuprofen) will take care of this.
