i have noticed these sore spots in my tummy over the past few weeks. At first I hoped it would just go away, but now they are more painful and the spots almost seem to be moving.

They are both painful to the touch and painful when not moving. it kinda feels as if it is bruised on the inside. I'm not sure how else to describe it. It is an internal pain.

Can anyone identify with this?Does this sound like anything u have heard of?

Please, I am really worried!

Really consider going after parasites. They can invade the abdomen inside and under the surface. The fact that they are moving should be a clue.

I echo glm, try to go after those parasites. They can cause these kinds of problems!

Just to clarify,I don't mean that the spots are literally moving, I mean the area of pain is moving from one spot to another.

I have never experienced this before and it is scaring me.

It first started with a much lighter pain in my upper stomach that I brushed off and over time it moved down and then spread out. I am so confused as to what this could be. I am a little backed up as well but it has been much worse before.

Maybe a colonic or warm water enema would be beneficial. Still think it would be a good idea to consider parasite tx. Google parasite symptoms.

Gigi, I agree with glm1111, I have movement in my lower abdomen and now after treating for parasites that feeling is gone and helped with other symptoms
to.

I was so afraid to do the parasite meds. Yes, I did not feel the best when I was on them, but very glad I did it.

I was losing weight like crazy and was yellow. After I treated them my weight started stabilizing and my skin color has returned to normal.

gigi,

I used to experience the very symptom that you are explaining (all of the time- especially just before my menstrual cycle) but with continued treatment, I am happy to report that I have knocked it back.

Do you find that you have hardened subcutaneous nodules (pea-quarter sized) in the locations of the pain? I did/do. One LLMD that I saw was of the opinion that it was inflamed fascia. Makes sense, really. As others on this thread have touched upon, some parasites can actually form these hardened cysts beneath the skin. Additionally, Bartonella can cause various types of nodules.

I have found it most beneficial to treat everything...with a vengeance!

I used to rely heavily on pliable ice packs, a heating pad, or thermal strips to get myself some relief. Prescription Lidocaine patches may also be handy. If I may, I might also recommend looking into the following: myofascial release/therapy, lymphatic drainage techniques, and anti-inflammatory remedies like curcumin, fish oil, etc.

Having this pain be alleviated has been a nice change. You will get there, too!

Best to you, gigi,
Told you...

Thank you, Told You! Fortunately the sore spots are gone after discontinuing doxy.

I do know what you are talking about with pms.
I am enduring it right now and it is soo much worse since my abx break!

I had hoped homeopathy would work for me but I dunno we'll see.

My mother in law has those subcutaneous nodules all over her arms, they really bother her because of the way it looks.

She asked me to look into it as she has had so many cat scratches. She is in great health though (Thank God) so I am not sure, can you have subq nocdules from bart and be asymptomatic?

gigi-

I would put nothing past the co-infections...especially Bart. I have an in-law who had a strain of Bartonella as a young boy. He was virtually asymptomatic, save for the fact that he developed grossly enlarged lymph nodes that finally became quite problematic. He told me that doctor's excised these nodes! I had never even heard of such a thing...but, he surely has the appropriately-placed scars to prove it.

My nodules don't happen to be visible; however, one could certainly feel them beneath my skin. Yuck.

Oh well, what 'cha gonna do, right? Fortunately, your m-i-l seems to be well looked after by you! Is she starts to show signs of any mysterious illness, I wouldn't hesitate to have those Bart titers checked.

Hope that this helps!
Told you...
