Hernia or Rectus Abdominal Muscle Strain? Watch
Over the weekend, I did some push-ups (honestly, not much, just like 5 lmao, but I'm quite weak & I really forced myself to try for em) & ever since then, everytime I lie down or stand up from lying down, my lower abdomen hurts a lot.
I didn't think much of it until today - and I've now decided to stop doing pushups or straining the muscle until the pain goes away.
However, I also overthink a lot and self-diagnose myself a lot through Google; I am worrying that it could be a hernia, not just a muscle strain. I am bloated, which is why I am worrying that it could be a possible hernia.
Could anyone help me, like give me peace of mind of what you think it is?
I am a 16 year old female - if the pain persists I will see my GP, but my parents are currently overseas (only back Thursday evening, so I will give it until then).
Probably just muscle strain so relax for a while and take it easy. Gentle stretches before excercise in the future might prevent this.
