I have been having severe pain in my upper left quadrant for the past 24 hours. Stomach, diaphragm and transverse colon areas. Feels like someone has been wringing my organs like a washcloth constantly. Could barely sleep last night due to discomfort. Vomitted 3 times before bed, felt cold, constipated ( last bowel movement was 24 hrs ago).
Was doing intense sit-up routine (partner stood on my feet to stabilize, while I did a sit up, they threw me a light medicine ball - 8lbs - which I had to throw back at the "lie down phase" of the sit up.) very strenous workout for me. Maybe I induced a hernia? But not sure where the vomiting fits in here.
No pain in apendix region. possible fecal mass felt only in transverse and descending colon area. no tenderness on plapation of intesines, but tenderness on palp. of diaphragm region under 12th ribs anteriorly. have not eaten for 24 hrs (not hungry) rare for me..I have a good appetite

Generally, I have always hed poor digestion, one bowel movement per day and usually induced by coffee. I am well hydrated and eat fruits and vegetables daily, so unsure as to why this plagues me.
