Hi Doctor, Yesterday I had done some abdominal exercise to reduce the fat. Today when I got up I am feeling severe pain on the right side of my abdomen, below rib cage. I feel like particular body part is paining. Is this normal or any other reasons for this pain. Pls advise the solution what to do. Thanks.

Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

Since you exercise yesterday, in all probability, it is a muscle pull or pinched intercostal nerve. Both respond to pain killers and physiotherapy. Please consult your doctor regarding this. Hope this helps. Take care!
