Over the past 2 days I have waken up to a sharp pain in my lower right abdomen...I would say that it almost feels like a bee sting. The pain subsides and then I am almost sore afterwards. Generaly throughout the day it occurs and goes away as well.
I had similar pains about a year ago and had a CT scan with and W/O contrast and they were both clean on diverticulitous and the appendix was clean as well. They even mentioned that they did not see any hernias. My primary sent me to a sports medicine place that then suggested I do PT. I was examined by the Dr. there for hernia and nothing...I did the PT and pretty much laid off all excercise activities...
Do you have any idea what I could be up against. Or more specifically do I need to go to a Gastro Doc or back to a different Sports medicine? Specifically the pain is: 4 inches below the Belly Button and then about 4 inches to the right. It is in the same place each time.
I am a male 35 5' 5" approx 155 lbs.
I run approx 8 miles a week and play ice hockey 1 time a week. (I have not been on the ice in about 2 months.) This excercise routine has been regular for about 2 years.
I did go and ice skate the other day for the 1st time and if my memory is correct it was the next morning when I felt the pain again...Muscle strain/Tear a possibility?
