Hernias are a common medical condition that occurs when an organ or tissue pushes through a weakened area of muscle or connective tissue. While some hernias can be easily detected by visible bulges or pain, others can have more subtle signs. Here are 7 silent signs you may have a hernia:

  • Aching or Discomfort: You may experience a dull ache or discomfort in the affected area, such as the groin, abdomen, or pelvis. This discomfort may increase during physical activity or when lifting heavy objects.
  • The feeling of Heaviness: You may feel a sense of heaviness or pressure in the affected area, which can be especially noticeable after standing for long periods.
  • Changes in Bowel Movements: A hernia in the lower abdomen or pelvis can cause changes in bowel movements, such as constipation or difficulty passing stools.
  • Fatigue or Weakness: A hernia can cause fatigue or weakness, which can be due to the added strain on the body and reduced physical activity.
  • Nausea or Vomiting: In some cases, a hernia can cause nausea or vomiting, especially if the hernia is causing a blockage or strangulation of the intestine.
  • Reflux or Heartburn: A hernia in the upper abdomen can cause acid reflux or heartburn, which may worsen when lying down or after eating.
  • Difficulty Swallowing: A hiatal hernia, which occurs in the upper part of the stomach, can cause difficulty swallowing, chest pain, or shortness of breath.

It’s important to consult with the best hernia specialist in Indore if you experience any of these symptoms or suspect you may have a hernia. Early detection and treatment can help prevent complications and improve outcomes.
