I have been getting lower right abdominal pains for a week now. The pains hurt more when i'm straining and moving i've never experienced this pain.

Appendicitis?: The description of this pain and your age group suggest possible appendicitis. This may not be the case, however. Need to be seen by a doctor before it gets worse. A doctor's exam and possibly a ct scan may make the diagnosis readily and the intervention, if needed, appropriate. An emergency room visit is appropriate. ...Read more

Can an external abdominal oblique strain cause rib and back pain?

Can an external abdominal oblique strain cause rib and back pain?

Possibly: This muscle has attachments to the ribs and some strong connective tissue in the lower back. Pain would be increased with a motion similar to a situp with added twisting motion at the same time. Muscle strains will improve with time and relative rest. If no improvement in a few weeks then get checked out by your doc. ...Read more

Abdominal Fascia : Likely a small tear of your abdominal fascia has occurred. The raised area is either a small hematoma (blood filled sac) or partially herniated abdominal muscle that is pushing up and out through the small tear in the outer layer of the muscle fascia. Think of the fascia as a robust 'hot dog' casing that envelopes the muscle belly. Small tears should heal with rest and decreased exertion. ...Read more

My doctor thinks I have an abdominal strain. Can that happen if you masterbate for an hour and have 20+ orgasms. My sides clench up during this activy?

My doctor thinks I have an abdominal strain. Can that happen if you masterbate for an hour and have 20+ orgasms. My sides clench up during this activy?

Rectus abdominus: No, these are not anal muscles, but a pair of abdominal muscles that run lengthwise between your pubis and sternum which can contract easily during orgasm. With 20 orgasms/hour the muscles are in a state of constant contraction and can be injured "strained". Orgasm is a state of "feeling no pain" not the opposite effect from excessive use. Digital use should be typing this question via this media. ...Read more

I have an abdominal/oblique strain, pretty painful.Taking mobic for 2 days.I am a mother of toddler so hard to rest, should I wrap up? Healing time?

Weeks: Most musculoskeletal pains/strains/sprains can take weeks to fully recover from. Oblique strains are no joke - they will cause many professional athletes to miss games! Wraps/binding can help though should be very temporary. It is most important to continue to stabilize the area with core stabilization. Having help with the little one would definitely help, though! ...Read more

What to do if I have slight pain in my left lower abdomen, its only when I press on it or strain it. is that appendicitis?

Wrong side : Though the appendix can rarely be on the left this is not likely. The only thing over there with constant position is the left colon. There are many reasons it can hurt, most of which are not terribly serious but you need to know. Have your doctor order an abdominal ct scan, a colonoscopy or both. ...Read more
