I am 39 and at 17 tore some cartilage in my right hip and a year later pulled something in my stomach doing stupid number of sit ups over a bed. I had a marked line, looked seperated one part of stomach muscle to the other. I continued a few days later and still feeling sore and lower stomach felt not functioning.
The hip injury i was told about at 30 years age and i think this bad gait movement made my stomach heal badly. I could not do sports after. If I tried push ups, sit ups, any lifting even small I would feel stomach pulled into chest and have bruising under arm pits.
I was a good athlete before this.
Many years later I was scanned for all my organs and had many ultrasounds and stomach tubes to test gas because I was being sick also after this.I later got acid reflux and felt my muscles were not pushing my foods down.
I got rid of this through 6 years of acid tablets.
My stomach healed enough to do basic lifting without stiffness, bloating and some breathlessness.
I also went to a hot spring which helped but just recently I made my hip worse from a fall and have a worse twist. There are no cartilage injections so i cant stop this twist and maybe thats made my stomach worse. I have bloating and some aches back.
I cant understand why i feel like the muscles moved into chest, the muscles are hard around ribs and i cant have good contraction of stomach.
I know there are at least 2 things mentioned here, but I would appreciate if anyone has any ideas?
I heard scar tissue can pull organs and ligaments together and it sounded similar to what I have had. However I heard only an operation can detect them and this also can cause scar tissue to regrow.
Are there any known things to tell if its scar tissue internal or something else?
The only thing to alleviate it a bit is hot spring water, which isnt easy to get to.
I also heard adhesions are possible. I dont feel anything close to muscles. just feels like hard muscle, and its pulled up to chest, and upwards on rib cage. I dont know why the muscle of stomach isnt enough and i thought originally i have damaged the stomach muscle because lower stomach feels soft and without muscle. The ligaments around hip joint are hard. just feels like something that used to be their has gone.
sorry if the message a bit disjointed but its also confusing for me.
