In brief: Hernia?

Those maneuvers increase your abdominal pressure and can exacerbate an abdominal hernia.
Careful exam may show this otherwise an imaging test.

In brief: Hernia

Typically a hernia can cause those issues.
I would see a general surgeon and ask them to examine you. It could also happen from a groin strain.
