By definition. a hernia is movement of tissue/organs into areas where they do not belong. If you have a hernia it may change position with your various body movements. Tissue can slide &/or become trapped. This could trigger pain. You may want to discuss this with your doc. If it begins to alter your life you may need to have it fixed sooner rather than later.
