Hello everyone, I was curious about an issue I've been having.
I'm overweight and I tend to come to the worst conclusions when it comes to my health sometimes, so when I one night yawned and stretched my arms above my head and felt a sharp pain in my right side approximately six inches to the right of and a little below my bellybutton, I was a tad worried about something serious like a hernia.
That worry was compounded with the fact that I was still very sore in the morning. It wasn't a constant pain, more of a sharp pain every once in a while. I've still got pain there every now and then but the level of pain seems to diminish. Could it maybe have just been a muscle that was strained is now healing?
If it gets worse I'll tell you guys, but what do you all think? I didn't go to the doctor because I've no health insurance and the pain -has- been slowly diminishing, though I was first hurt Saturday night just before going to bed, and felt the sharp pains still Sunday (now being Thursday 1:33 am).View Thread
