  • It could be many things. Have you tried taking an antacid?

  • I dunno, mama, but I have this nasty left over cough from a cold . . . Every time I cough, I get this horrible pain in the top right front part of my head . . . maybe my head and your stomach have the same problem ll

  • I could be anything from a pulled muscle (and sometimes if you pull a muscle on one side you pull another on the otherside because you are putting pressure on the otherside to relieve the one) it could be stomach acid.. it could be cramping from the birth.. etc etc.. the best thing to do is talk to a doctor about it. They will know the best course of action. Good luck.

  • This is really sad to admit.. But when I was like 13 I had the same thing. Sharp horrible pains in my stomach. I couldn't walk, sleep, eat.. Nothing. So I finally went to the dr and they did x-rays. I was full of shit. Seriously. So maybe it has been longer the you realized?? Lol

  • Have you ever had surgery in that area? I had adhesions from my c-section. It was where scar tissue had adhesed to my organs and when I moved a certain way, it pulled on that. It was very painful and came and went. I finally had a surgery to fix it in April and feel much better. It was an out-patient surgery and they just lasered the scar tissue. Another thing that sounds possible is a hernia. If it's not that it could be a pulled muscle.
