I am 43 and female. I have no other symptoms.
I used to have a physical job that eneded about 5 months ago. I am very slim but don’t do any exercises.

Since how long have you been suffering?

Ive only noticed the last months

Sorry for the late reply and inconvenience.

Thanks for all this additional information.

I understand your concern.

And it’s my first privilege to pay attention and provide you with suggestions to relieve your discomfort/ worry.

Like any other muscles in the body, your abdominal muscles can have spasms that occur as a result of muscle strain during heavy use or overuse, fatigue, dehydration, and alcohol use.

Hernia, Gallbladder dysfunction can be other possible causes.

You may need an ultrasound for the evaluation.

Pepto Bismol, probiotics, Nexium/Prilosec would help you, meanwhile.

Hope I have been able to clarify the situation for you and helped in resolving your query.

Let me know if you have any further queries so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

It’s my pleasure to continue this conversation until you satisfy.
