Puffy/Stringy Muscle

I have a muscle that when is used it becomes swollen and endures incredible amounts of pain. I believe it to be the oblique. The area where the muscle runs along the iliac crest. The muscle going down to my pubis becomes inflames and stringy when I walk. When I massage the muscle it seems to deflate quickly but then just slowly puffs back up again.
If anyone knows what this may be so I can do some research please respond as soon as you can.

Enjoy your day!

Re: Puffy/Stringy Muscle

wow,thats just too freaky.have you consulted at all with your primary about this?are you certain it is indeed a muscle you are dealing with here?i do think getting an MRI of this area would be your best bet at this point in order to 'see' the possible problem there.do you have pain or this same problem anywhere else?have you ever actually had any type of surgical procedure within the general area?'something' is very obviously affecting that particular muscle there just trying to figure out what that is is the key.getting some basic bloodwork done like your metabolics could possibley indicate something not within normal limits.it would just rule some things out or in as possible triggers.

it is also a possibility that this problem is within the spinal area too.anytime an innervated muscle starts having issues,in some cases,it leads back to the nerve in some way.i really do think just getting an abdominal and then a lumbar MRI done really may reveal some sort of nerve problem there.obviously,'something' just isn't right there that needs a Dx so any possible treatment could begin to help the muscle tone to come back.it is crucial you find the trigger.does the pain get and the muscle get any better if you ever tried some sort of anti inflammitory like advil or aleeve?puffiness within any muscle would indicate some level of inflammation going on,just a thought there.

just setting up an appt with your primary for a full eval on this along with getting that referral for the MRIs would be a big step in the right direction.then depending on just what is found,a proper referral to the right type of specialist who deals with that area affected.there are a few different possibilities as to the actual specialist depending on what is triggering this.i wish you lots of luck with this,hopefully they can find the problem right on the MRI the first go round.please keep me posted as to what you find out,K?i really am curious as to what would be causing your particular types of symptoms.FB

Re: Puffy/Stringy Muscle

I went to the doc this morning because I could not stand the pain. They think it might be a hernia. yay for me... I have to get a ultra sound just to be sure. But it seems that is the path that is most likely. I also have some sciatica due to lack of streingth in my lumbar muscles.

I will keep you posted on where it goes from here.

And thank you for responding to me and taking the time to help!

Have a great day!
