Hernia?: A hernia may be a thought in this context, although other possibilities may exist. Are you having any diarrhea or constipation? Nausea? Fever, chills, sweats? Are you having pains when you’re not coughing, or only when you cough? If you’re thinking “yes” to these questions, you may want a doctor to examine your abdomen.
