Abdominal Muscle Pain

I was wondering if anyone else has had an issue the has happened twice to me now. The muscles along the front of my abdomen end getting really sore like as if I was doing sit-ups for a whole 24 hours. Then passes in 2-3 days. I haven't b/p for a month now. I have had issues with muscle weakness and fatigue. But it stays in the exterior muscle wall of my abdomen even though it does hurt a little when I eat but that quickly passes. I can eat and digest fine, aside from being bloated and gassy.
Laying on my stomach makes to pain go away.
Anyone else have this happen to them in recovery? If so, what did you find helped?

If your last purge was only a

If your last purge was only a month ago then your muscles could still be tender from this.
I used to binge/purge consistently and my stomach was always in agony like I had been doing sit ups all the time.
It could also be excess acid in your stomach causing irritation from the purging, again this should disappear the longer you remain b/p free, I used to rub my stomach in circular motions that seemed to help a bit.

Thank you Angel. It took me

Thank you Angel. It took me by surprise by being a delayed reaction. I thought it would have shown up quicker. Silly me.... ;)
I will try rubbing my stomach and see if that helps. And I will keep the stomach acid problem in mind.
