Six inches straight left of my belly button. I guess a hernia can be practically anywhere in the gut, right?

None of that means you have a hernia.

Maybe, but that's far, far from conclusive.

'Could just be that you slept in the wrong position or reached for something on a shelf and pulled a muscle or maybe you have a little cramp in your intestines... or any of dozens of other things.

Why jump to conclude that you have a hernia?

...but does it really need to be said?

Lots of possibilities. The 'turn your head and cough" is a diagnostic for inguial hernia, which is down in your groin. The pain you've got on your side *could* be a hernia, or something else. I've got an active 'spigellian' hernia which causes some discomfort on my left side at about the same place you mention. I'll have surgery in the winter.. it's not critical right now. I had surgery for both sides two years ago, but the one on the left didn't take. They'll go back in an put in the surgical reinforcement... mesh, I guess. Could be Bondo and fiberglass for all I know. big grin smiley

Anyhoo... see your doc. Be sure to stay 'regular'...

What cracks you up?
We don't know how intense the pain is, or how long it's lasted.
I played whirlyball a few days ago and my lower abdomen is sore-- should I see a doctor stat?

I had bronchitis a couple of years ago, and coughed pretty good while out shopping with my family. Felt like I cracked a rib, it hurt so bad. I couldn't take a deep breath for a couple of minutes after that.

So... I feel your pain.
