This has got to be one of the weirdest ones, but here it goes:
Over the course of the past 2 years (I'm 39) I have had a strange thing happen to me about 4-5 times. When I sneeze strongly while sitting down, I sometimes get a painful cramp running across my lower abdomen. All I can do is grin and bear it until the muscle releases. The area is little tender for the rest of the day.
It happened again yesterday and I couldn't do ab work, although it didn't interfere with other exercises. Today I was able to do decline bench sit-ups and leg raises without discomfort.
As a bit of background I have had two surgeries to remove sections of my small bowel, so I have a couple of zippers on by belly. One runs vertically from a few inches above my navel to just below it (~7")and the other running horizontally near where my appendix used to be (~6"). Because of this I am not very symetrical muscle-wise, but I wonder if the scarring has left me succeptible to the strains.
Anything serious? Thanks in advance.
