Hello, welcome to the site! My name isXXXXX and I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
I'm sorry to hear about this
Thank you. I'm rather puzzled by it since it occurred very suddenly
When did this start?
Yesterday morning. By the evening it was gone, and it reappeared after I awoke this morning.
Okay, this may be a muscle tear, but it may also be a hernia, which is a defect in the muscle and fascia
I would make sure to have this evaluated as soon as possible
I would also stop crunches until then
Yes, I have an appointment with my physician on Thursday. I will stop crunches. I had increased the number to a point of straining the day before it happened, and I pulled/tore a calf muscle extending to shoot baskets about 10 days prior. I thought they might be related.
The straining may have caused this
I see. It helps to know that. I was concerned at first, thinking it might be something more serious.
I don't think it is more serious, no need to be too worried
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX wait then until my physician examines it.
You're very welcome
I appreciate your help.
I am happy I could help
Thank you, goodbye.
If you have any questions in the future, you may request me by starting the question with "Dr Brims" and I will answer
I'll do that, thanks.
