Symptoms: Lower abdomen pain, workout, pull ups, push up
Thank you for writing to Ask The Doctor.
Pressure in the abdomen increases when you are doing exercises like Pull ups and Push ups. Breathing out while you are exerting can reduce this pressure.
When you hold your breath while exerting, you will increase the thoracic pressure and this increases the abdominal pressure. However, you may be suffering Liver disease or Gall stone disease and I recommend that you consult a Physician as soon as possible.
Wishing you a speedy recovery.
