I have recently developed tenderness about 3 inches above the belly button, both to the left and to the right. No pain, just tenderness to the touch. Deep, not surface. I am a 51 yr. old female. My instincts have told me something isn't quite right with my health. In the mornings on the most part, I feel a serious weakness in roughly the same area. Sometimes worse than other times. I feel like something is terribly wrong. Sometimes I have to hold myself up the weakness is so strong. I start to feel better much after I eat. I intend to have blood work done soon. I don't have insurance so I tend to put medical issues off as long as possible. The deep stomach weakness has been going on for about 4 months now. It has occasionally happended in the evening.
This may be one or two issues, I would welcome any advice on what this could be. There is the tenderness issue, and then there is the serious weakness issue. My husband had a brain stem stroke 2yrs ago and I neglected myself and indulged heavily on sweets for comfort. I gained 25 pounds of shear fat. I have recently changed my eating habits and am eating better. What could I have done to my health. Please advise. Thank you.
