Weird question about fat pain pre-op



Recommended Posts

I don’t know where else to ask this.
for some reason out of no where I am having a pain in my abdominal fat. I never had this before and am wondering if anyone else ever had this. It’s not the “I can feel my fat growing” pain but like a dull uncomfortable pain in the muffin top area on the right side. It doesn’t feel like an organ or muscle pain but a literal pain in the fat.
i have not had surgery.
anyone ever experience this?

I'm not going to speculate what or where your pain originates except to say there are no nocioceptors (pain recepters) in subcutaneous fat.. period.

Ok well thanks I guess. I’m not looking for a diagnosis, just wondered if anyone else ever had that pain. I don’t really understand your response. So...

you said it "feels" like fat pain and not muscle or organ pain, I'm explaining that is not a thing. So...

But why are you being mean about it?

he/she didn't sound mean to me at all. They were just explaining that the pain wouldn't be coming from fat. You're reading too much into it. Which can sometimes happen when people communicate in writing (texts, emails, etc).

My guess is hunger pains combined with food detox. Many of the foodstuffs we eat are highly addictive. If you've removed these from your diet you may be detoxing. Just a guess.

Elvira, I have definitely had fat pain in my abdominal area. It seems to happen after I have done a lot of exercise, and it occurs below my navel.

      New here just looking around. Hopefully if I have any questions this will be a good place to come for answers. I finally was able to get in to see a doctor about having a surgery and everything has been set up to get the ball rolling. Lord willing it will be able to happen in 2021. I spent to many years denying I needed help and I've just yoyoed every year, I want to be around for my daughters.
