Likely not ur heart: Given the description of your symptoms this is unlikely to be heart related pain. If it hurts more with sitting try pressing on the area while laying down and see if it is tender.

Please use stool softener or bulking agent (Metamucil) or pelvic congestion mid cycle (Advil (ibuprofen) helps) Chronic abdominal pain = RT doctor visit thanks ...Read more
