Is this Rectus Diastasis?
Since having my first child 8 years ago I have had a bulge that appears when I contract my abs at the top of my stomach near my ribs, very painful and random at first! Is this Rectus Diastasis?
I always thought it was from the c-section, but after seeing and asking so many doctors, even getting a cat scan that showed nothing, I've been left unable to do ab exercises for 8 years and still have a bulge near the top of my ribs on the left that bulges out when I try to exercise. And now have for the first time in my life a bit of a tummy from lack of exercise. Not happy and I need to know what I can do? Is it ONLY surgery that can help me?
