so the other day i went to a doctor for a physical. She did the normal stuff and said that everything was fine. The only thing im wondering about is that when she checked my stomach i felt pain when she pressed it. Nothing too bad but it was uncomfortable. Even when she wasnt pressing deep, it still hurt a little and when she did press deeper it hurt more. She told me everything was fine and i didnt have any problems so i just didnt say anythingn about the pain. Is it normal to feel pain when your stomach is examined? and if there really was something wrong with me, wouldnt she have told me? Does anyone have this same problem? and how do you relax during a stomach examination if it hurts? Basically i jsut wanna know if this is normal but i would appreciate people answerring the other questions too.

  • It would have been a good idea to mention the pain. Thats part of the reason they do press on the stomach. There are a lot of reasons that it could feel uncomfortable starting with where the pain is under pressure.
