  • Your abdominal pain is most likely due to the effort your putting in to try to breathing. There are lots of explanations for difficulty breathing.. However, This might Imply compensation if your diaphragm or chest wall muscles isn't working as well as it should be. Your abdominal muscles need to compensate by decreasing inter abdominal pressure to pull the diaphragm down and keep your lungs filling.Bilateral/Unilateral Diaphragmatic Paralysis:http://www.emedicine.com/Med/topic554.htmOther causes could be lung infections (Very treatable), Asthma/allergy (Very treatable), cancer (much less likely without an exposure to high levels of smoke, especially with negative xrays).
