  • I am having a weird pain in the upper left quadrant of my abdomen. Its like I am being poked with a sharp object and its making things hard to breathe. It started as a burning sensation and has turned into this and it radiates to the back like someone is poking me in the ribs. It hurts really bad and I cant get relief no matter how I seat. I am at work so its not like I can go lay down or anything. Has anyone else experienced this? If so what was it? Should this warrent a call to the OB? I have an appt tomorrow but this pain is almost unbearable. Also Presley dropped big time so its not because she is so high. Any suggestions?

  • The only time I felt a pain like that was when I was in labor
Thank you hklord!

  • I hope its labor! Also TMI but I have had constant diarrhea too.
    I did call the office and she said that they have heard this before and said it was more than likely a tear in my abdomen from the stretching. Eek. She said to watch it and see if it gets worse, if it does she wants me to call back.

  • I have had some pain like that, but it comes and goes. I experience the burning sensation a lot! I have no idea what it is, my Dr didn't really have a definitive answer for me. I hope your pain stops, or you just go ahead and go into labor soon!
Thank you LMB2007!
