?Diagnosis: Unless recently torn, weakness in the abdominal wall is seldom painful. I recommend you seek another opinion to make sure that is the true source, but in the meantime if the pain feels as though it is muscular and truly within the muscle portion of your abdomen, then warm compress for 30minutes, 1hour off, possibly anti-inflammatories such as aleve/advil and can use tylenol (acetaminophen) 2hours later if needed.
