I am fed up with Kaiser's lack of answers and am hoping to get some insight here.
Every once and a while I get a muscle cramp on my left front abdomen, about to the left of my belly button. it is usually brought on by muscle usage, twisting the wrong way, but can also be brought on my holding in gas (like at work). tonight was brought on my turning to lay on my left side, after a few days of strenuous coughing from a cold.
My initial thought was it's some sort of IBS, but the pain is so sharp when it happens and you can even feel a hard throbbing lump in my stomach as it's happening. this lead me to believe it was a hernia. After going to the Dr and doing an ultra sound, there was no visible sign of a hernia. with that the Dr dismissed me and called it a day.
it still happens and when it does the pain is unbearable. I have to twist and stretch, all while having my hand pushed into my stomach to find comfort. the pain literally feels like one of my muscles have slipped underneath another. I'm even sore for a day or two after an "episode".
a little backstory, 5 years ago I had VSG weight loss surgery. I got down to 200 pounds from 330, but am now back to 260. I cannot figure out if this is weight related, but not having any answers is so frustrating.
any advice is welcome!
