I get this pain whenever I lay on my stomach and prop myself up with my elbows for a fairly long period of time. Since I very rarely lay like that I tend to forget about it until it happens again.
Well it happened again this morning and worse than before. I was laying in bed on my stomach, propped up on my elbows using my laptop. When I was done and went to move, I felt a severe and kind of sharp pain in my upper abdomen and ribs (a little below my breasts). I tried laying on my back and tried standing and walking but nothing helped. The pain was strong and spead around towards my sides at roughly the same level as the pain in front. The pain would come and go a few times a minute for about a half hour before it finally eased up and then went away. I don't know what this could be and am hoping someone might have some ideas.

Yes if that were an option I would have done it by now. Unfortunately I do not have health insurance and can't afford to go to the Dr. without it.

What about a health department then.If it's that painful if it was me I would go to the ER.I don't have health insurance either but if I hurt that bad I would go to the ER.
