Question: I have a stinging sensation under my skin in the abdominal area from bottom of the rib cage basically all over the abdomen. Fluctuates during the day. When I press my fingers over the area I can feel the discomfort under my skin. Feels fine after waking up in the morning and better on the weekends when I wear comfortable clothing. Normal appetite and bowel movements. Urine is fine. I take 2 blood pressure meds and prevacid daily. I have no rash. Not painful just a nuisance.

Been for about 2 months. When I press on my skin I can feel it in between my skin and muscle. Achy stinging sensation almost like inflamation under my flesh. Not in any one spot; all over belly

Brief Answer:
Ultrasound can be done

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the details .

* Inflammation seems less likely as it should be round the clock , not during
certain time periods of hours or days .

* Ultrasound examination of the soft tissue is recommended to rule out
any underlying issue .

* Recommendations at present
- Deep breathing exercises , YOGA .
- Prefer smooth , clean , cotton clothes .
- Avoid exposure to excess heat .

Wishing you fine health ahead .
