Default I have discovered a new worst pain

I've had an excruciating pain in my lower abdomen for over a week.
I feared a hernia, but there isn't a bulge.

I bent down today, and the pain was so dreadful, I almost passed out.
I made a visit to the clinic, and after an examination, I found out it definitely isn't a hernia. However, I did strain my hip flexor and it could take a few months to heal. There are three degrees of injury, and mine is apparently a grade two, the most common.

In the mean time, the only treatment is inflammation medication, stretching (which only makes it hurt worse), and ice packs. I was told not to twist at the waist, as this irritates the muscles, so I have to consciously remember to step to turn.

This is going to be a terrible few weeks to months.
I hope none of you have to ever experience a strained hip flexor.

Sounded like kidney stones when I saw the title.
I've had two bouts of that and the first one had me rolling on the floor crying like a baby. i was working out of the country and fortunately the client pick me up, dumped me in the back of his truck and carted me to the local hospital The doctor attacked me with a syringe normally used for horses, full of morphine.....aaaah....bliss
I don't think I could ever hate anyone so much as to wish that on anyone

Take it easy and I wish you a full and speedy recovery

Skip I've had a kidney stone before and felt your pain. I was going to click the like button but thought it would be cruel.

John I wish you a speedy recovery. Probably hurts to bend over so don't drop the bushings.

At least having a baby only lasts a few hours and then it is over!

John, trust you will improve with the passing of each day. My first thought was diverticulitis. My grandmother had numerous bouts with it, doubled her over with the pain.

Did they check you for appendicitis? That's also pain in the lower abdomen (usually on the right side) and pretty excruciating.... when mine got infected, I had trouble getting out of bed and when I finally did , LOML bundled me off to the ER... from there only took 12 hours before they did surgery. A little nausea will go along with it. And the surgery isn't much fun either.

I never heard of a Hip Flexor... I hope you feel better soon.

I thought when I got a Kidney Stone that would be the worst pain I would ever experience.

Then I got Shingles. The pain doesn’t go away... the meds don’t stop the pain... you are always in pain for days, weeks or longer. I never experience anything like it and I hope I never do again.
