Hi there,I am hoping someone can help me. I experience throbbing/acheing pain in my oblique muscles (just slightly above my hip) and around to the lower back and sometimes into the gluteul muscle (the butt!). I get this daily and it doesn't seem to matter if I eat or don't eat and nothing has relieved it so far. I also have GI problems, including constant bloating. I don't know if the bloating is stressing my muscles so much that they ache/throb now, or whether something else is going on. Can anyone shed some light on this that has experienced the same thing? What tests should I get my doctor to do to rule out anything more serious? Not that I am a hypochondriac or anything, but I would be kicking myself if I wrote this off to bloating, when it was something more serious. I have been dealing with this pain daily for over 8 months now. Many thanks for any assistance anyone can provide!
