Hope someone can help me. I don't know if I have pulled or torn a stomach muscle or if its something else. Heres the symptoms- I have severe burning or tearing feeling when I bend over or certain ways I move in my upper stomach higher than my belly button, near my ribcage. Nothing else seems to be wrong. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Preventive action is needed to avoid misery with a hernia.
Hey Candy you better be careful with that I had a hernia and it ruptured and it was horrible. Surgery to repair a strangulated hernia is a bit more complicated than having a hernia repair surgery. The pain and recovery is a bear.
After having two kids I still say the pain is the worse pain I have ever had. Trust me you need to get a second opinion!
