Abdominal Pain with T-12 and L-1

I am not sure if this is what is going on, but I've had multiple problems with disc etc. Many nerve blocks - one for inguinal nerve, neck, lower lumbar, BUT THIS PAIN seems to be coming from the T-12 AREA where I have a lipoma. It wraps around my waist and into my adominal area all the way to my pelvic area an sometimes down the inside of my leg. It is SEARING in my abdomen. Gets worse with barometic pressure problems. I can literally feel the PATH of the pain from my back through this area to my pelvis.

The back pain is KIND in comparison to the ABDOMINAL pain where I think a NERVE is pressured or pinched.

Has anyone got symptoms anything like this ? I read that the INGUINAL NERVE literally runs from the T-12 through the body - to the pelvis and on down the leg. This is some of the most debilitating pain I've had. More so in the side and abdomen and pelvis than the back, but I can tell it starts there.

HELP..............can't see Doc until OCT.



  • I can't bend over.......that's when the pain comes undone. I can't get to my shoes anymore or clean the toilets - anything BENDING OVER sends me into serious pain.

    Oh, Yeah! Abdominal pain, esp around naval, right rib cage pain, right waist pain, right pelvic bone.. My right foot ..pain..
    I have blood vessel complications...but spinal issues major factor with the gut pain..oh, and that ribcage. I never even heard of this stuff till it happenen to me!

    Before I had my pain management doc I was in and out of the ER...the pain was so terrible. So that is an option if you can't wait for Oct appt.

    For me, I try to stay aligned..no lifting, twisting, bending..etc..

    Doc has tried the epidurals. Effective for some people...everyone is different. My pain relief is from meds daily..however, it only takes the edge off. The pain is never completely gone.

    Good luck with doc and let us know how you are doing.

    Oh..also..for me hot baths help sometimes. Again, everyone is different. Just sharing my life with you!
    Take care!
