Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your symptoms. Now from what you are describing it sounds like that you may be developing a condition which is known as ACNES, this stands for abdominal cutaneous nerve entrapment syndrome. This is a condition in which the superficial nerves in the abdominal wall would be compressed or trapped leading to symptoms like shooting or stabbing pain, numbness, tingling, buzzing sensations among others. This would be diagnosed with the help of a simple NCS/EMG test which would be diagnostic here. The treatment can be with the help of simple steroid injections and in severe cases surgery to release the trapped nerve.

Another cause of this coukld be associated with kidney stones which can sometimes present in this manner and cause this sort of problem. This would be diagnosed with the help of a Ct scan of the abdomen. This would be then treated with medications in case of small stones while in the case of larger stones you will need lithotripsy which involves using sound waves to break down the stones or evgen surgery.

But i think you should get evaluated for the ACNES condition first especially if other more common causes like stones, inflammation of the intestines lknown as colitis are ruled out.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
