    it all started for me about 10 years ago, I was blowing up balloons and i had this attack pop out kind of similar to a babys foot. it pops out and i am in severe pain for llike 30 seconds i have to stand and apply pressure. It used to be only on the left side, now it can happen anywhere on the top of my stomach. If i have to cough i must hold my belly to apply pressure so that wont happen. I had 3 in one day recently, I went to emergency because i was a lil worried. the dr felt it when i did a coughing exam, he made me an appt with the surgon, i went there and the surgon did a physical exam and coughing exam and he did not feel it. I had a gall bladder removal 4 yrs ago, he said he thought that that would be odd that the surgon who removed my gallbladder did not see this. He sent me for a CT scan, i am now waiting for my results on july 19th 2013. I am hoping that i can get answers, I can no longer do situps or bend properly or dare catch a cold. If it is only a muscle issue i have to live with i will be seriously scared to live my life like this.

    CT scan should show an abdominal her now, though it’s not as good for groin hernias. Your symptoms sound very much like a hernia. Curious what CT showed and what plan of care has been.
