Hello and hope you are doing well.

With hernia usually you can see a bulge. The bulge generally increases on coughing and decreases on lying down. This normally causes dragging pain. Severe pain can occur in an hernia, if it complicated, like if there is obstruction or strangulation. The pain could also be due to other causes like unaccustomed exercise. But when in doubt best to have it checked. So, consult your doctor for an evaluation. In the meantime, you can use OTC Acetaminophen for relief from pain.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
