While breast feeding I got a very bad cramp under my chest and above my abdomen... it's on the side. I went to orthopaedic doc he gave me few medicines but still.i don't find any relief. I'm unable to lye down or sit straight. Not able to walk also. This pain is killing me. I was in tears while breast feeding my baby for 2 days. Today is 2nd day of medicine still the pain is same. Did anyone go through this?? What did u do to overcome this pain? Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa asha chaudhry Rebecca Prakash Dr. Payal M

Pls help.

Hey amrita so sorry to hear. Is the cramp related to posture only or could it be gas/acidity? I wud experience severe pain below diaphragm near ribcage which got sorted out with acidity meds. But this was not post delivery. This was post my fibroid removal op. Pls spk to ur gynea asap for sure so she can give u something to take care of the pain. Try and use a nursing pillow if u can. Pls tc. Lots of love & healing hugs.

No never had this pain Amrita, speak with your gynaecologist about this.

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa Dr. Neha D. Khodke kindly advise

My gynaec also gave me medicine nothing is working out for me. It's some nerve which is troubling me. And the pain is unbearable.. it's definitely not gas or acidity. It's a very bad cramp. When i touch that area I can feel the nerve which is on one another. And due to which the pain is in one side of my lower back. Yes asha chaudhry I'm using feeding pillow from hospital itself. Don't know how suddenly all this happened. I'm really not feeling good about this. Yest whole day I was in tears due to this pain. Can't even breathe in properly. Cos if I breathe in it hurts in that area. I don't know whom to go for this. 😣😣😣😣😣😣

Oh gosh pls take care amrita - hope ur dr is able to sort this out.

Can you please elaborate- exact location of pain.. is it increasing while respirating?? Is it pricking type of pain?? Is it continuous or interval attacks??

Cannot make out the cause of the pain from the qs posted.
Uve said pain is between chest n abdomen, but uve also said it's lower back. Can u explain location properly.
it definitely needs to be looked into.

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa; and Dr. Payal M;
Mam actually pain is on the right side of my body. Between chest and abdomen I meant it's on the side not near stomach. Side muscle or bone pain
Like when I stand up or try to sit or lye down its terrible and I am unable to bear this pain for few minutes then once i take position after that changing position is difficult... spoke to gynaec and orthopaedic doc. But none medicines are working ☹☹☹

Do one x-ray to check the ribs... may be the ribs are the displaced or friction is more.. once get an x-ray and show it to ortho

Yes an x-ray,; even a focal ultrasound of the area to look for any superficial causes may help

Thank u payal and shilpi mam. I will visit doc tmrw. Will bear the pain today

Hey amrita how are feeling now? Hope better! Hugs sweets!
