Ok, if it's not one thing it's another! Sheesh.

Now, for the last couple of days, I've been having a sharp pain in my upper abdomen. Right under my rib cage. The pain is relieved when I sit hunched up or push on that area. It got really bad yesterday when I was running on the treadmill and today when I was at work, running around (not actually running this time but very busy).
I tried to make an appt with my GI in town, but I couldn't get in until Aug. 11th. Yeah right. I'd rather just go see my general practitioner.

I'm worried it may be adhesions b/c I did have all those abscesses cleaned out right around my liver. Or what if it's my liver?!?!?! Or what if I have another blood clot. OR an anuerysm? I did a bad thing and looked up my symptoms on symptom checker. Now I'm freaked.

I feel great otherwise. Oh, except a weird thing. When it hurts, It makes me need to empty my rectum........now i'm worried about crohns.

Any ideas?

For what it's worth....lately I've been getting a lot of muscular cramps too; not only my abdomen, but my legs and back also.  But, especially in the last 2 weeks,  I haven't been eating or sleeping enough, and I've had a lot of work related stress.  You mentioned you've been very busy too. And, I'm going to guess you haven't been taking very good of yourself either lately.  I wonder if there's a connection.
