Painless Stomach Spasms
Spasms? My lower abdomen is twitching no pain it's just annoying. It more to the right side could it just be spasms just started about an hour ago
Twitching abdominal muscles are different from spasming abdominal muscles. One hurts like a son of gun and one hurts like a son of a daffodil (i.e. doesn't hurt at all).

ATwitchInTimeMakes9: Many people get little muscle twitches or 'flutters' or momentary spasms. Sometimes quite prominently (ever see the movie 'Dr Strangelove? ' or'The Pink Panther? ').

If there are no other associated symptoms, there is nothing to worry about. Avoiding carbonated beverages and fast foods may decrease the gurgling. Avoid swallowing excess air and don't smoke. ...Read more
