My pain is not in my stomach area. it is just on the the side. You know when you put your hands on your waist/hips. Thats is where I feel it. Sometimes when I sit I can feel it too. I know what you mean about it feeling like a strained muscle. I tell people it feels like when a runner gets cramps or stiches in their side from running. But once the infection is cleard up, I have no more pain. I have to take 6 fiber con tablets a day and I drink metamusil, eat lots of fruit so I can have a bowel movement. After all that I still sometimes have a hard time going.
Hope I am answering your questions. We can help each other.
