Pain in abs during abdominal exercise. Suggest

Hi, about 4 months ago I was doing cruches on a decline bench and all of a sudden I came up one time and felt a sudden pain in my abs and had to drop right back down. I felt fine and then a week later I tried doing abs again and the same thing happened. I stopped doing abs for a while and about 2 months ago I went to the doctor and he told me I probably just strained it. I have been going to the gym still the past couple of months without doing any abdominal exercises but I have still been feeling pain off and on in my abs. How can I make them heal fast because this is killing me not to be able to do any abdominal workouts?

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain that you experience in the abs muscles is likely to be related to a mild muscle soreness caused by less warming up exercises. Taking muscle relaxants orally and doing a hot fomentation will be helpful.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
