    Muscle twitching in lower right abdomen.
    An_197348 posted:
    For the few days or so, I've been having this strange twitching sensation in a muscle a couple inches to the right and slightly lower than my bell button. At first it just happened once or twice a day, but today, it's happened 7 or 8 times in the last few hours. It does not hurt, but it is bothersome enough that i have to shift positions to make it stop. I can't really feel it twitching with my hand when i press on my stomach and I don't feel a mass or anything but inside of my stomach, it feels weird, like I have a ping pong ball size knot that is off and on vibrating in the right side of my abdomen. What is happening? Is it just a muscle spasm, or could it be more serious? Do I need to see a doctor or should I wait to see if it calms down?

    I also get this from time to time. Not really sure what it is, and my doctor never really felt concerned about it either. Just a strange sensation.
