Curious: Bilateral pain region anterior superior iliac crests with sitting but not locomotion in twenties male is odd. Symptoms suggest tendonitis transversus abdominis muscle stressed when sitting on hard surface. Bilaterality raises idea that he pursued excessive physical activity like sit-ups or weight lifting ; strained these tissues. Heat ; rest ; see doctor if persists or sooner if becomes constant.
