While lifting a very heavy object, I felt something tear or pop on my left side below my navel and abou two inches left of my navel.
There is not any significant pain in the area to the touch, but I have nausea at times and some internal discomfort in the whole immediate area. I went to my doctor and he examined me for a hernia.
He concluded that I do not have a hernia and that I could have pulled a muscle in my pelvic area. The condition seemed to be getting better for about a week and has now flared up again. I have not stopped doing some of my activities and may have aggravated the area again without knowing. Is there an abdominal muscle injury that could give me these symptoms? My doctor is currently on leave so I cannot reach him at this time. I would appreciate any advice you could give me. I have had this issue for 3 weeks. Thank You very much.
