I'm having a weird issue which I'm seeing a specialist about but wanted to ask on here too to see if anyone could help. Basically for the past 5 weeks I've been having one sided abdominal tension/cramping (I'm 26 and Male) which ONLY comes on when I walk and instantly goes when I sit down....I don't have this issue at any other point. It's not painful but feels like the type of cramp you get in your leg but without the pain. The area which it occurs is below my lowest rib and above my hip but a little more towars my belly button.
I've had blood tests which were clear, I had a partial colondoscopy (didn't get to the side I have the pain on) and also and endoscopy which were both clear.
I get NO further tension or pain when pushing and prodding the area or when twsiting or anything...only when walking. I have no other symptoms either.
One thing I will note is that for the past 8 years I've been having bad back pains (mainly on the right side near my spine) due to a car crash I was in and for the past 4 months or so I've been twisting and bending my back in order to "crack" it to relieve the spasming pain I get. Now that same spasming pain has started to appear on top of my above mentioned symptoms in the same affected abdominal areas...cracking my back relieves those pains but not the tension/cramp.
If i place a hand on my abdomen when I have the cramp/tension when I'm walking then that too makes it go away.
Could this be some odd back related muscle issue? Any help would be greately appreciated
