I'm not a 'runner'. I walk, run and sprint 2x/day. While doing my routine one day, I noticed that I had pain in my lower right ab, very low. Odd. What happened? After researching appendix and hernia, I was at a loss.
It took me days to put 2 and 2 together. BTW, I'm not your normal FEMALE. I do stupid stuff, like trying to flip over a lat bar at a full stretch. Ding-ding. 2+2=4.
It felt like a muscle strain, so I thought it'd go away soon. I kept running and the pain grew worse. It has expanded all across the lower abdomen now. So, I thought ovaries, but this pain is near the surface of my skinny body, does not feel 'internal'.
I did notice something ODD ... When I run (or walk) backwards up the hills, which is what I do, I noticed that I feel no pain. Has anyone tried this?
Now, at about 5 weeks with no sign of improvement, I started searching for answers and found this forum. YAY. Geez, guys. I hope I can get this better soon on my own. I steer clear of doctors and knives. This is a DRAG.
There are a zillion posts here and I don't have time to read all of them. I'm wondering if anyone has CURED this issue ON THEIR OWN. Anyone?
