Spastic 'Something'

Whatever it is, it's driving me crazy! If I could put a name to what's been bothering me the past 2 weeks, I'd call it 'spastic colon', but I looked that up and I do not have those symptoms. I am not in pain, I don't have 'D' or weight loss. What I am experiencing is spasms in my lower abdomen on the right side when I sit or lie down. It's driving me crazy. It's almost like having hic-cups in that region and even feels like a baby's repeated kicks. Well, I KNOW I'm not pregnant !! I haven't noticed or felt the spasms when I'm standing, and I certainly can't sleep standing up! I've done some internet searching for abdominal spasms/twitching and while I've come across several women complaining of the same thing, there are no answers. I guess I'll have to suck it up and go to my doctor. I'm in no pain at all, it's just very annoying.
Any one out there experience this?


  1. Hello sorry to hear about the spasms. Can't say that I have expeirienced it, sounds like maybe your muscles are just twitching, it can happen from time to time. But it sounds like it's a good idea to find out what a doctor thinks. Did you do a lot of bending and squatting? Sometimes this can use stomach muscles, and cause twitching.

    Hope you have a wonderful Monday.


  2. Hi Heidi. Thanks for responding. Yes, I do a lot of bending but this is the first time I've ever experienced the 'twitching'. I'll wait a bit longer and if it continues to annoy me I plan to talk to my doctor. Funny how it only does it when I'm sitting - and last night was the first time it happened while I was lying down.

  3. You better go to the doctors and have it checked out.
