Stomach Pain/Spasm near Belly Button

For over 4 years now, I have had stomach pain/spasms on the right side near my belly button.  It has been happening more frequently in the last year.  Usually, the pain/spasm happens while doing situps or anything that strains that muscle.  Sometimes it happens during a bowel movement or intercourse.  Recently, it spasms even when I sneeze.  The pain/spasms last about 30-45 seconds, sometimes longer.  They are very painful to the point where I have difficulty breathing because of the pain.  I was diagnosed with a hernia after I delivered my twins 4 years ago.  My doctor said my stomach muscles were all stretched out due to the twins size (8 lb. 6 oz. and 9 lb. 1 oz.)and from the size of my other two older children.  Nobody can specifically diagnose my problem.  Can you help?

It sounds like a problem with the muscles along the abdominal wall. No one can know for sure without seeing a specialist. Talk to your doctor about a surgical consultation.
