Hey Joe, when I work out abs I tend to get very sharp pulsating pain in either the upper left area of my abdomen (right under the ribcage) or the bottom right abdominal area. The pain would be an 8/10 and lasts about a minute, I may feel pulsating or inflammation, then after the minute it will come down to a 3/10 but I am unable to bend, let alone continue an ab workout for that entire session. This has been going on for years and I have taken 2+ years completely off from doing any direct ab work per the doctor’s recommendation and it did nothing for the issue. Do you have any idea what this could be or how I could potentially fix it? Do you think it is related to the pancreas at all considering I’m also pre-diabetic(fasting blood glucose levels range from 95-108) at 17% bodyfat? I understand you’re not a doctor but I have been to doctors about this issue and they’ve given me absolutely nothing, not to mention I would place my bets on you knowing more than any doctor I’ve seen
