Should doctor help me on and off table in pain so bad & crying dr did nothing but cause more pain by pushing my legs up w/me on stomach. ?
I am not sure.: Compassion is certainly a desirable trait for a physician. I wonder if the physician was observing to determine what you were capable of doing without assistance. I am also wondering if the doctor was performing a portion of his medical evaluation when he pushed your legs upward. Some of the medical examination techniques that are done can cause pain. The doctor can be assessing range of motion>. ...Read more
I have a lump between pelvis & abdomen doctor said no hernia or tumors or cyst what could it be ? It causes pain but not when i push down to it
Where exactly?: Where exactly is the lump? Between pelvis and abdomen is too vague. Is it a superficial (ie. Can you see it?) lump or is it something that is internal that was seen on an ultrasound or a ct scan? Also important to know how big it is. What type of dr told you it was not a hernia, tumor, or cyst? Did they see it or are they also answering your question based on your description? ...Read more

Engage in regular aerobic exercise. ...Read more

Its not food: Even the most toned abdominal muscles will not reveal the abdomen you want if they are buried under a beer gut. Decreasing body fat is a key component of 'washboard' abs. That said, anything that strengthens your core (sit ups, crunches, leg lifts, torsion, etc ) all play a role in building those muscles, so eat healthy and don't expect a magic food to do your hard work for you. ...Read more
