In September 2018, I reported significant abdominal pain, after which a ct scan determined my gall bladder was not functioning. I had no apparent problem before. In October 2018 had my gallbladder laparoscopic removed with no complications. Although abdominal pain subsided, it has still continued on my left side. It is aggravated while I am active working, walking etc. my only relief is while inactive such as sitting. A subsequent ct scan in January found nothing.
Physically my abdomen is distended and tight. A certain amount of numbness is on my left side and occasionally even up to my neck.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Its usually due to muscle spasm. Muscle relaxant is helpful in this situation. Regular aerobic excercise is the key to avoid such condition in long term.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
