Go see your family doctor! That's always an excellent idea. S/he can then help direct your care. Even if you didn't have Medicare, you still have plenty of free or low cost options (see my webpage - sorry but I can't seem to link right using Chrome). Multiple hernias? Inguinal & hiatal hernias are the most common. Incisional or ventral hernias are also common. My concern would be for incarceration and/or strangulation of your hernia. Small bowel obstruction if you've had abdominal surgery previously. Blood work and xrays (sometimes repeated) would help make the diagnosis. Perhaps appendicitis? Gallbladder issues? Stomach flu? Lots of different possibilities that require your family physician to serve as quarterback of the team to develop & direct the plan to figure out what's going on. Good luck!
