I have been having a strange pain in my abdomen for the past month. A couple friends who are medical professionals suggested possible nerve pain, but I am unsure. I plan to see a doc soon, but wondered if anyone else has any clues?
Here are the symptoms and specifics:
-Female, mid 30s
-pain is a burning/pinching type pain
-occurs only in my left lower abdomen, about an inch below my belly button and to the left a little.
-typically only hurts upon releasing a deep breath (not when inhaling, when releasing!)
-does not hurt when laying flat or being still.
-sometimes I can feel the pain/pinch if I move or stretch a certain way.
-no abnormal bloating
-doesn’t seem to hurt when pressed on
-tight pants do seem to make it feel more “irritated.”
-before this pain began a month ago, I had been a little constipated.
-currently not constipated
-no abnormal bleeding, etc.
-no exercise or weight lifting that would have caused it.
-the pain has pretty much remained the same for the past month.
-recently had a complete blood count that was normal (two months ago)
Any other questions, just ask me! Any insight is appreciated!
