Bulge in abdomen when coughing or lifting objects, constant palpitations, do not have uterus. What could this be?

Hello. I have been having a problem for three weeks now in my hypochondriac cavity of my abdomen . First, for two weeks whenever I would cough, lift, or do anything that would require the use of my abdomen muscles, I would feel like a huge buldge was pushing out and then in. I thought it was a hernia , but then four days ago, it just stopped doing it. Yesterday, I started with new symptoms. I have constant palpatating and movement feeling in the same area, the hypochondriac cavity. I have had three children and five pregancies, and it feels like being five months pregnant when the baby begins to flutter and move. The problem is, I do not have a uterus or cervix . Not to mention that for two weeks prior, I had symptoms of a hernia. I do not know what is wrong with me and do not have insurance or money to see someone, but I am worried that it is something serious. What could this be?

Thanks for writing to us.
The bulge in the abdomen while coughing is likely to be due to hernia. This can happen from the surgical wound or weakened abdominal wall.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
