For the last few days consistent fluttering in my lower left ab, along with some sort of constant feeling there. I have extreme worry of it being an aneurism from what I've read online. Can someone make light of this, is it just a muscle spasm? why is it happening? For the last couple days as well I've had extreme back pain when I sleep and wake up, which gets helped easily with motrin and the doctors gave me muscle relaxers for it, which i'm about to try. I mentioned the ab thing to the doctor and she felt around for tenderness I didn't experience much tenderness, and she listened around my chest and stomach. But did not say much else about it.. I also suffer from anxiety which is at an all time high when things are wrong with me. I always think they worse.. but it's probably not a terrible thing to be super safe. Can anyone make light of this, should I go back and get it checked out?

    I noticed I said lower left ab, but it's actually the lower left rib cage area. Sorry about that

      It actually just started having some pressure, kind of an ache. Which I guess is mildly painful, more uncomfortable for me though. No severe stabbing pain or anything.

    Anyone? Could really use some advice, i'm freaking out over here like i'm just going to drop dead at any second. I just had a weird sensation where it felt like a blood pressure cuff was fully blown up on my arm.

    hmm... don't know how to help. Did you do sports recently so your muscle could be reacting... or are you very stressed out or have a lack of sleep. My muscles just do that, when I am very tired and stressed out..

    I occasionally get twitching in my abdomen with IBS  Do you have any bowel habit change or stomach pain that moves about? Stress can also cause muscle twitching.

      Nah definitly not ibs, I got a steel stomach. But I do think you’re right on the stress, I have severe anxiety and I believe it’s causing muscle spasms. Along with muscle soreness.
