I am a female, 21 years old, and am being treated for psoas muscle pain (trigger point therapy) in my lower abdomen and lower back by a PT/Chiropractor. I've had this pain for a good 2 years but it just recently got a lot worse. The doctor who is treating me believes the muscle is not working right; that it has not adjusted to my body as I have grown. The only problem is that along with this pain I have developed a distended abdomen (that is even worse after I eat). I've seen a gastroenterologist and tests have ruled a lot out.
Have you heard of psoas problems causing bloating like this? The pain has improved about 40% with treatment however the distention is still terrible. Could something else be wrong with this muscle that is causing this symptom?
Nope. My only symptom's are bloating and sometimes nausea. That's why it doesn't sound very much like a GI disorder, and possibly why my GI specialist has not been able to find a cause yet.
Doing research on my own I read that your intestines lay on top of your psoas muscle which is interesting. Also, that there are stomach nerves in your spine close to where the psoas muscle attaches? I could be wrong...
