Pulled muscle, or hernia?

Dh has a pretty bad cough, and yesterday he was coughing so hard, he seems to have pulled something.

He was nearly bent over with it earlier and has since tried to cough a bit more gently and curl up a bit to control it, IYSWIM.

I’m wondering if the cough has caused a hernia, or just pulled a muscle.

He has been taking paracetamol today, 2 every 4 hours, but still it hurts.
He can be a bit of a hypochondriac, but he does look off colour.
Any advice appreciated 💐

it does sound like a pulled muscle, I find ibuprofen is better for these sorts of injuries. Never had a hernia but I think you can see them
