Abdominal Pain

During my recent 10-day Vipassana meditation course, it became clear to me that I was suffering from a dull pain in my abdomen that wasn't going away. In fact, it occurred to me that I had been suffering from a pain on my right side for a year, on and off. The thought that I was diagnosed with a gallstone 9 years ago and that the symptoms for pancreatitis as described on the Mayo clinic's web site match my own to a large extent and that pancreatitis is often set off by gallstones.

So I've decided to fast. And see the doctor, hopefully get an ultrasound.

I fasted 2 days last week and the pain abated. So I think a 7 day could help.

And I will continue with Yoga, which seems also to help.
