Bulge in gut during pose?

Hi, I was doing an elbow balancing pose and suddenly had to stop because I felt, as best I can describe it, like a muscle balled up under my breastbone in the center of my chest. I was able to rub it and it "disappeared." Has this ever happened to anyone else? I'm hoping it's not a hiatal hernia.

I'm not familiar with the "breastbone", Renie.

Perhaps you could give us a better idea of the location and nature of the pain.

Perhaps this: will help.

I couldn't find the right spot on the diagram -- it is between but slightly below the breasts -- probably near the esophagus.

Keep in mind that I am not a physician and my feedback should not be confused with a medical consultation.

That having been said I'd guess you pulled or strained the intercostal muscles between your ribs.
