From the description of your symptoms it sounds like you latissmus dorsi muscle is in spasm thus giving you an uncomfortable feeling. As far as there is no other sign and symptom nothing much to worry about. Just apply ibuprofen cream over the area twice a day and massage gently with warm olive oil. Keep yourself well hydrated. No worries for now just wait and watch.

Thank you for replying Dr. Uzair. I Googled where the section of the latissmus dorsi muscle is but the feeling isn't coming from there. The tightness and inflamed feeling is more so in the lower right Quadrant of my body where my large intestine is. I thought it may be appendicitis but I have no symptoms of it
Doctor: Dr Uzair, Doctor replied 7 months ago

Thanks for the reply.

That can be another muscle in that area and it is less likely to be appendicitis as it occurs on front side and you have no nausea, vomiting and other symptoms so no worries.

This is Dr. David

I see you have asked for another doctor to help you

sorry about your recent flu infection.

you could have a small hernia in the area if you have weakness in the abdominal wall which can cause your bowels to push out into the hernia causing pain

you could have a cyst below the cyst which could be getting larger

it can be difficult to tell online without being able to examine the area

can you upload a clear photo of the area?

do you have health insurance to be able to see a doctor face to face to get your abdomen area examined?

you may benefit from an ultrasound of the area.

Hey Dr. David, thank you for replying back. I took 2 pictures and I circled the area on the side of my body. I also circled the area on my ab that recently got hurt. I was doing crunches about 3 weeks ago and that area gave me extreme pain right during the exercise. Any movement or breathe hurt me pretty bad for about 7 minutes so I stayed still and it went away. It felt like my intestine was popping out so I had to put pressure on it (it was that painful). I couldn't tell if it was a cramp or sports hernia but maybe that information will help with why my lower right side is hurting now.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I have health insurance so I will be seeing a Dr. in person soon
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 7 months ago

thanks for the photos.

you could have had a muscle cramp if you are not used to doing situps.

if you don't eat enough fruits and vegetables, you may not be getting enough potassium in your body.

this can cause muscle cramps and pain when you exert yourself.

that is good you are going to see a doctor soon.

the circled area on the side could be your oblique abdominal muscles which could have cramped up

eating more bananas, OJ, fruits and vegetables can get more potassium into your system

drinking more water can help

make sure you stretch before and after working out

Let me know if you have other questions.
