    My pain is front waist line (not around the back or sides) right where my underwear and pant, belt line is located and my belly over hangs my belt. It started recently and I first thought it was after lifting too much over a weekend.
    It is like a burn and when pressure is applied inward it is sensitive across the whole front right at the belt line. I have loosened by belt and my pants are not tight but it feels better when pants are unsnapped. I believe that this is from getting excess fat in the belly area. Could it be something else? Let me know your thoughts.
