Hello,

Since how long have you been having this problem?

Any problem with stool or urine? Any nausea/ vomiting?

Any other problem?

Thanks.

Thanks.

It seems that you have a problem with the 'rectus sheath', that is the centrally placed muscle in the bdomen and goes from the epigastrium to your pubis. It is the one which comes into use while you are getting up from bed and hence it is paining you. It could be because of a rectus hematoma or a rectus sheath's partial tear. If it is a tear, I don't think it is severe or is complete, otherwise you couldn't have got out of the bed or straightened up.

Please consult your doctor to check whether anything beyond a rest, hot fomentation and pain killers is required.

Best wishes.
