Lifting heavy objects and adding other strenuous activity like
shoveling snow, can bring on a "Hernia" or a rupture. If you had
an inguinal hernia (Small or incomplete), heavy lifting made it worse
and you probably have a strangulated hernia
. What that means is,
there will be a defect in the lining of the lower abdominal muscle
and a portion of your intestine protrudes through the defect and gets
caught giving you intense pain, nausea
etc. If you see or feel
a bulge in the area near the groin, you definitely have this. I recommend
that you see your doctor as soon as possible or go to the nearest
medical facility for an accurate assessment and treatment. You may
need surgical repair of the hernia.
Wish you well.
