Do People With Umbilical Hernia Have A Lot Of Pain
Sometimes.: Pain from an umbilical hernia is dependent on the size of the hole and what, if anything, is "stuck" within the hole. It is not uncommon for fat to get stuck in these hernias. This can irritate nerves in that area, leading to a queasy feeling, especially when the lump is touched. Rarely, intestine can get stuck in this hernia, leading to a bowel obstruction, intense pain, and emergency surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
This is a hole in the abdominal wall at the belly button, the location of the umbilical cord during fetal development. It usually closes by itself as it fills with scar tissue. Infants with a hernia here usually resolve by age 4-5. Adults may develop a hole here for unknown reasons, and will see a lump under the skin ("outie") where intra-abdominal contents have ...Read more
Variable: The most common presentation is of a bulge just below the groin crease, typically with little-or-no pain. If intestine gets stuck in the hernia (strangulated), it can cause colicky abdominal pain, distention, and vomiting--this is a surgical emergency and requires immediate attention. We recommend elective repair of all femoral hernias due to the propensity for incarceration and strangulation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sometimes: Meckel's diverticulum can present with unexplained abdominal pain due to swelling in the diverticulum. Alternatively, it could present with painless rectal bleeding because the diverticulum sometimes produces acid that erodes the intestinal tissue next to it. If you are known to have a meckel's, the recommendation is to have it surgically removed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Quite variable: People with esophagitis, usually caused by acid refluxing from the stomach because the valve between the stomach and esophagus isn't properly functioning, can have varying degrees of discomfort. Some have absolutely no symptoms and some have quite severe symptoms of burning pain in the upper abdomen, lower chest. Alcohol, coffee, large meals can all contribute to these symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Endomyometritis: Women with endomyometritis typically have fever and associated rapid heart rate, midline lower abdominal pain, and uterine tenderness. They may also have chills, headache, malaise, or loss of appetite. I am not familiar with exactly how exquisite her belly pain may be. Considering the possible complications of endometritis, such as peritonitis or sepsis, pain might be the least of her concerns. ...Read more
Sxs of gastroparesis: Regardless of cause, gastroparesis (delayed gastric emptying) presents with heartburn, chronic or intermittent nausea, vomiting (of old food), bloating, early satiety (fill up quickly), or abdominal pain postprandially (after eating). In mild cases, symptoms subside when the gut is empty but return when again full. One sees increased symptoms after a large solid meal vs a liquid one. Get checked. ...Read more
Not usually: Pain is not typically a prominent feature of prostatectomy (assuming you mean radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer). Pain may be slightly less with minimally invasive (robotic) approach vs. Traditional open surgery, but perhaps discomfort is a better term in either case. Significant pain may be a potential cause for concern. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Highly variable.: Paralytic ileus describes dysfunction of the intestinal tract where the bowels "shut off" causing bloating, nausea+/-vomiting, and cramping pain. Ileus is always secondary to an underlying process in the abdomen (infection, intestinal surgery); therefore, there may be pain associated with the primary process, as well. Once the primary process is treated, intestinal function returns to normal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Typically no: Esophageal stricture is basaically a narrowing of your "food-pipe" that carries food from your mouth to your stomach. Depending on the severity of the stricture, most often ones feels that food is getting stuck as he/she swallow. Mild stricture often cause "stuck-sensation" with solid, large pieces of food. As it gets tighter, smaller pieces, even liquid can cause problem. Either way, consult doc! ...Read more
I believe I have a groin hernia. Other than pain, what are some of the symptoms of a groin hernia?
No bulge, no hernia: The most consistent symptom of a groin hernia is the presence of a bulge. This may be constant but often enlarges with activity and may seem to go away after laying down. While hernias may cause pain, they usually cause subtle discomfort (also) worsened with activity. This pain may extend into the inner thigh due to nerve irritation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can't say: Patients struggling with the worst cases of whooping cough are generally under a year of age and cough so hard they get strokes & brain damage. They are not conversational at that point but i'm sure it's not pleasent. Older kids or adults don't have it so bad, but the "100 days cough" surely wears them out. It is described as a moderate bronchitis in that group. ...Read more
