  • PLEASE if you are worried enough to ask it in a forum, call your doctor. Trust me no question is stupid, when it comes to calling your doctor. I hope you feel better. I know when I was preg. that is the time my sides hurt. It was the weight of the baby pulling on my tummy muscles.

  • Hmm... I ask all sorts of questions in a forum that I wouldn't bother my doctor with. *shrugs* Anyways, is it burning in the muscles, or on the inside, like heartburn? If it's more heartburn-like then try lying down propped up on pillows.

  • I guess I was just weird then, I would just call and talk to the rn.

  • PS. Do you have a thyroid problem? I know that they were worried that my thyroid was whacked out. It can cause side discomfort...

  • I had it too, it was heart burn. Tell your Dr. and he will give you something for it and it will work. It sure helped me. I was drinking that chalky stuff every night and it didn't work good.
