In the last month or so I have experienced a very strange sensation on my left side under my rib cage. It feels much like my intestines have become one of those long balloons being inflated and twisted into a random balloon animal, and the resulting cramped feeling is like having a charlie horse because its inflated and twisted to the max. I have noticed that it only happens when I bend over from the waist for exercises, cleaning up things off the floor, or picking up my little ones. I have had 2 C sections and it was the only thing I could think of why I would have internal organ problems, and freaked out a bit when I saw scar adhesion being a likely problem years post surgery (my c section dates were in June 07 and Oct 08) while doing online research. I can’t get an appointment to go to the doctor until Monday, and I am a person who tends to go as a last alternative, but by the same token I want to be around for my children and I’m a little worried whether this is an emergency room type visit. My last episode with this was two nights ago, and it probably took a full two minutes or more before I could get the contraction to stop. When it happens I can not stand up straight, the max amount I can stand is with my waist perpendicular to my legs, a 90 degree angle, and the pain is intense enough that I can not hold it there long. I end up in a fetal like position while on my feet and kind of jostle myself in directions until it “disentangles” itself. It feels almost like an alien has infiltrated my body :(. I have been considerably sore, a bruised like feeling, in that area all day yesterday and today too. Last night, I don’t know if it was my imagination over being concerned over it or what but, it seemed like it was getting hot in that spot and more pressure. Any advice on what this may be, or whether I should head to the emergency room, would be well appreciated, thank you in advance.
