I have multiple, painful lipomas on my abdomen. It hurts even to lay down but not all the time. It hurts on and off during the day.

Removal: Hi
Lipomas that cause symptoms can be removed by a general surgeon. The method of removal is usually bedside but it depends on the size of the lipoma. Sometimes when the lipoma works its way into the muscle or connective tissue planes in your body, they need more invasive surgery rather than a simple bedside procedure. But it is still, generally a low risk surgery. Hope this helps ...Read more

Right after I lay down on my back or side, my stomach starts to make a lot of noise. It's not painful...Just really loud. Is there something wrong?

Runmbling belly--ok: Some rumbling is quite common and it is typically more noticeable when you are relaxing/laying down chilling out. It is so because Adrenalin is low and environment at night is often more quiet and so you can feel and hear more. As long it is not causing pain or bothering you, I would not worry too much. Often, some meditation can help quiet things down a bit. If concerning, consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

I just started period and when I lay down I have painful muscle spasm in one side of lower back is this normal with no stomach cramps?

I just started period and when I lay down I have painful muscle spasm in one side of lower back is this normal with no stomach cramps?

Positional muscle: Spasm is not that uncommon during menses. First there is uterine contraction which, if strong, can press on nearly blood vessels reducing the supply of oxygen to nearby muscles. When you lie down, shifts in blood vessel position in your pelvis may aggravate this phenomenon. As long as the spasm is temporary, I wouldn't be too concerned. Naproxen/ibuprofen should help. Stay well:) ...Read more

I've noticed that my stomach is kinda hard and seems bloated. It kinda hurts to lay on my stomach or bend forward. What could that mean?

Pro mean with: And bio means life. Probiotics help the GI system digest food. Anti means against. So, if one takes excessive antibiotics they can kill off the good bacteria in our GI systems and we can have digestive problems. This can happen w/out antibiotics at times too. So, the probiotics replace the good bacteria that are missing or low. Peace and good health. See doc to rule out medical conditions. ...Read more
