Took flexeral for severe backache. Constipation, swelling under rib cage. Due to hernia?

I had a sever backache lower left side . I took flexeral for 24hrs 3 tablets 10mg and pain went away. Th next day while drying off from a shower i felt constipated and in an instant my left side under my rib cage swelled . The constipation went away within a few days and the swelling has decreased but still present. No pain or discomfort and I have been able to workout with no discomfort. My unedecuated guess ist that it may be a hernia . Thank you Ken

Hi ! It is not possible to guess the nature of the swelling which you have developed under your rib cage without a clinical examination. Therefore, I would suggest you to get reviewed by your family physician for a physical examination by him for further management. For constipation, you should take a lot of fibers along with plenty of liquids. Wishing you an early recovery.
