Symptom #3: Feeling Full or Bloated

Feeling full, heavy, bloated, or generally uncomfortable in the abdominal region is quite a common characteristic of people suffering from a hernia. This occurs more often in people who suffer from umbilical or hiatal hernias because these are directly related to the organs in the abdominal cavity.

This symptom usually only arises in people who have fairly serious hernias. Those who suffer from smaller, milder hernias may not experience any bloating or discomfort at all.

Some people experience a sensation that feels like their groin is dragging. This can be similar to the intestinal discomfort felt by people suffering from abdominal hernias.
