Dizzy, shaky and disoriented, have hernia in pelvic area. Is anything serious ?

I woke up dizzy, shaky and a little disoriented as in a mild panic attack (which I do get once n a while). I then threw up but the food was dark and pieces were from about 18 hours ago. I would like to know that I do have a hernia in my pelvic area but I believe I can still push it in and out. I also relieved some gas. After about 40 minutes I am starting to calm down. I just wanna make sure it s nothing serious with my hernia that will need fast ER visit.

Hi there,

Thanks for your query.

Firstly, vomiting of old food indicates that you may be having intermittent bowel obstruction, possibly due to hernia (particularly when a loop herniates into the pelvis and causing obstruction).

You should therefore consult your ER so that surgery of hernia can be done AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE, before it causes complete intestinal obstruction and even gangrene of the herniated intestinal loop.

Further, you should take anti-anxiety drug, such as, clonazepam or alprazolam on a regular basis for panic attacks.

Consult your doctor and apprise him of my opinion. I am certain that he agree with me, order required tests, and- based on the reports- will prescribe suitable treatment as advised.
