Can A Abdominal Muscle Pull Cause Belching And Indigestion
I pulled an abdominal muscle and since then I've had more belching and indigestion than usual. Could this be related to the muscle pull?
A serious muscle pull could strain and irritate the GI system, especially if that GI system is already compromised. On the other hand, it's also very possible that the GI symptoms are causing pain that is mimicking an abdominal pull. A burning pain is associated with pulled muscles, so it may be that you're feeling that instead. We tend to think of muscle pulls as annoying rather than truly painful, but if you tore something you could be in serious pain.
