Not convinced : MRI of whatever doesn't usually see kidney stones unless large. If MRI was for muscles or hernia ok. CT for kidney stones. Also, the CT would help evaluate the kidney for trauma. See a doctor sooner than later ...Read more

What is the cause of a hernia?

What is the cause of a hernia?

Nature/Nurture: Most hernias develop due to a "birth defect" of sorts, where natural holes in the abdominal wall present in fetal life fail to close. This may manifest itself at birth or require years of "exertion" before the hole reaches a size large enough to be evident. Other hernias are strictly "wear-and-tear" phenomena, although it is believed that they occur in-part due to inherently weak tissue. ...Read more

Can femoral hernias cause miscarriage?

Can femoral hernias cause miscarriage?

Not Directly: A femoral hernia would not interfere with your pregnancy unless bowel would get stuck in the hernia, requiring emergency surgery. This is very rare since the enlarging uterus occupies the pelvis, effectively "blocking" bowel from entering the hernia. Even with an emergency operation, a miscarriage is not inevitable. Best to repair hernias when not pregnant. ...Read more

Can belly crunches damage back or cause hernia?

Moderation: Strengthening one's core is actually an effective treatment of back pain, so I wouldn't be too concerned. As far as the hernia issue.... Crunches shouldn't cause a hernia but they can certainly worsen an existing one. If you do have a hernia and it is interfering with your quality of life, you should be seen by a hernia surgeon for a formal evaluation. Good luck! ...Read more

Can having GERD and a small hital hernia cause panick symptoms?

Can having GERD and a small hital hernia cause panick symptoms?

GERD: Patients react to gerd and symptoms of hiatal hernia in different ways. Anxiety is generally not a symptom but esophageal spasm from the acid or tiny bits of acid aspirated into the airways could give the sensation of anxiety. I would recommend a history and physical examination by primary care physician in a trial of a proton pump inhibitor. If the anxiety persists after this medication trial then it may be a separate issue. ...Read more

Can you tell me is hernia a possible cause of abdominal part swollen?

Can you tell me is hernia a possible cause of abdominal part swollen?

Hernia Bulge: One of the most common signs of a hernia is a bulge in the area of the hernia. A hernia is a defect/hole in the abdominal wall. As a result the contents of the abdomen push through this defect and create swelling in the area. While this may only represents fat from inside the abdomen, sometimes it is intestine. Hernias should be evaluated by your physician and most should be repaired surgically. ...Read more

These are very common, and can be highly variable in terms of their significance. Small hernias without symptoms can generally be safely watched, without activity restriction. Larger hernias or those causing pain may need repair by a general surgeon. Hope this helps! ...Read more
