View Full Version : Was this some kind of detox?
10-01-2005, 04:48 PM
Last night when I went to bed, I was feeling kind of bloated in my stomach and abdomen which seemed a bit odd because I've been raw again for a few days. Anyway, I've been bloated in those areas before, but then I started feeling like there was this big bubble on the left side of my front, from under my arm over to the middle and down to my hip bone. I tried deep breathing and that gave me sharp pains, centered right below my left breast. I tried massage and the areas between my ribs were really tender. It faded after awhile, but this morning it was still tender. Any ideas?

I am not a doctor, so take what I say with that in mind...However, it may be colic (gas) pain in your decending colon...hard to say. Often, when eating large amounts of vegetarian fare, especially raw fiber, many people develop gassiness. THis is cause the bacteria in our colon ferment fiber, so it is like you just tossed them a feast...:)
I'd say pay attention to what you eat before and after such pain, and see if there is any pattern. Note your bowel habits, etc. It could be that things are breaking loose and moving...If you get intense pain with no logical explaination, you may want to see a practitioner, just to be sure...
PErsonally, I get this type of pain at times as well. Try lying on your side and doing the massage you mentioned. That is what seems to work for me...
