Firstly, thankyou for takign a look at my thread, and thankyou for taking the time to read on..
I am 19 years old, physcihally i look healthy, although i eat a lot of sugary foods , soft drinks etc... I am not overweight.
I do not exercise, and spend most of my free time laid down.
I work as a tyre fitter, sometimes i have to lift heavy loads...
The last month or so, i have developed an " ache " in my abdomen, about 3 inches to the right of my tummy button but just a little higher ( i think this area is called the lumbar area?) , it feels similar to " stich ".... Apart from this happens at random, and not necesarily during work.
As i say, there is an ache just like a minute amount of stich ( noticeable almost all the time ), but on two or three occassions there has been a sharp stabbing pain there, the first time hurting so much i had lean over and support myself with a table, and hurting when i breathed..
The other more recent times havnt been so bad....
Could this be just a muscle i have pulled or something? I really dont know much about the medical sides of things :(
Any help would be so so appreciated, thankyou.
