I just began an exercise program, that worked the abdominal muscles alot.
I also have bronchitis, which has made me cough alot the past couple of weeks. I now have a spot on my left lower abdomen, beneath my belly button, that burns and hurts ALOT. It is near a scar from having one of my children cesearean. My question is, do you think I have torn my muscle, and if so, can/should I continue my exercises? I was doing them every other day. Do these things heal on their own, or do you have to have something done medically to fix it? Thanks
