My doc says that I have fibromyalgia and not to worry. But I have so many lumps throughout my body I do worry. I first noticed a few tender lumps on my right rib after having an ultrasound 9 months ago. (I thought the tech was rough but over time the pain gets better then comes back.) I have many more squishy tender lumps now.(I did notice that in both of my thighs they also had small bumps but now its more like a hard, tender rope.
Following then onwards, I have experince pain trobbing at the back, in between the joint of knees, in between the hip joint, upper and lower both of the legs, at the joints of the arms, in between fingers, at the palm of hands and feet. Am i suffering from fibromyalgia? Do i need to do a full body check-up for diagnosis?
L knee arthroscopies (dont' remember what years, but was many years ago), ovarian cyst removal prior to hysterectomy (1985). For about the past month or so, I've had intermittent left upper abdominal pain that ranges from a sharp, pinching pain to an aching pain (anywhere from 3-8 on pain scale) I do not have any heartburn with this pain. The area where the pain is located is also sometimes quite tender to the touch. Some intermittent nausea as well - no fever.
I was just diagnosed with gallstones and it sounds like you have the same symptoms I had. An upper abdominal ultrasound will let you know if you have gallstones. Once you are diagnosed however, it may be impossible for you to get insurance for your "pre-existing condition" so I would try to get insurance right away. Good luck to you...I'm interviewing surgeons this week. May God bless you and your family on the loss of your child. I can't imagine the pain you have been through.
The pain was real! Scar tissue was from a c-section in 1988. Fast forward to around 2002. upper right abdominal pain. Hyda scans, ultrasounds, came back normal. I started swelling and tests were repeated. Pain still nagging. Blood work normal excpt foor one thing. If I remember right, my alkaline phosphatase? was barely raised. This is a year in to this. GI doc says okay enough, I think it is your gallbladder and we have it taken out along with hiatal hernia surgery.
Hi Dawn - I don't get numbness in my left leg, but I do get pain. It has also been in my left hip for the past couple of weeks. I have thought about the pinched nerve idea, but I thought if that were the case, my chiropractor would've been able to fix me up. It seems there is a direct connection between vertebrae T11, T12, L1, L2, and the spleen, large intestine, small intestine, stomach, etc.
However, everything seems to be hitting the fan this week and with recent symptoms, I'm beginning to wonder if it isn't fibromyalgia. I know he can check for that too though, so I thought I'd get some opinions here. A brief history: I'm 31, and for the past I'd say 8 years I've been battling illness after illness, (including 2 bouts of mono - the second of which was just last year) constantly feeling tired and achy and almost always having a sore throat and swollen glands.
I'm 28 years old and shortly after having a baby about 10 months ago, I started having medical problems. It started with back pain and upper abdominal pain. Then my foot and head started tingling. Then the headaches and body aches began. Next came the pelvic pain, stiffness, and sore muscles. I have random tender spots from head to toe. The pain is sometimes achy, sometimes sharp, sometimes my body is tender to touch. Several months into all of this my bladder started working overtime.
pain in upper right abdominal area radiating to the middle part of my back. Worse at night when I lay down.
Hi, I've been reading the forum of others that are going through abdominal fluttering and it's freaking me out. I have Fibromyalgia and Myofacial pain syndrome and I don't think the abdominal fluttering has anything to do with either condition. I do have a child and the fluttering feels just like the fetus moving around and I KNOW I'm not pregnant. It's to the point of me being able to watch my abdomen move and expecting a fart to come out and I get nothing.
They conducted tests like 24 hr Holter Monitor test, Upper Endoscopy, Gastric Motility Disorder test, and Abdominal Ultrasound but all the tests were normal. I also used medication for stress/anxiety but it didn't give any relief. Eating/drinking and exercise worsen the symptoms. Does anybody experience head pressure and chest tightness together all the time? Can this be fibromyalgia? Please help.
Hi Everyone, I just recently started experiencing similar right upper quadrant (RUQ) abdominal pain and came across your thread in my search for information on the Internet.

I'm 21 years old and have been diagnosed by Fibromyalgia 3 years ago.

I have been experiencing upper stomach pains that goes across my whole abdominal area right underneath my diaphram. This pain feels like I am very hungry and my stomach is signaling to me that I am hungry. I'm usually not hungry and this pain continues to happen even after I eat. My appetite has signficantly gone down since the pains have started because they only get worse after I eat. On a scale from one to ten my pain is around a 4.

I was unable to eat anything without abdominal pain and burning. I have lost 14 lbs. at 5"9, I went from 134 to 120. After a brief stay in the ER, I went to see a gastro. doctor at U of P Hosp.
Colonoscopy, upper endoscopy, abdominal CAT scan, pelvic and abdominal ultrasound, and cbc, chem 7, stool culture-- all are normal. I have a "slightly" positive ANA 1:40+. During one of these episodes I had a fecal WBC of 30-40, no occult blood (even though I thought I saw blood in the bowl). My past medical history is positive for seizures of unknown origin, started post pregnancy and peripheral neuropathy of unknown origin.
However in January she started experiencing severe abdominal pain (mainly located in the lower left quadrant, but recently has been much more acute and seems to travel from the upper left to upper right just below the diaphragm). She went to her pain clinic and they advised her that it didn't seem related to her fibromylagia and to go and get it checked out.
After my last appointment with the first gastroentologist I went to a nuerologist becuase he thought maybe fibromyalgia but she said no and I had a MRI of my neck and brain and all that was found was bulging disks. I have to start therapy for them but I really have no neck pain. All my pain is stomach and back area. It goes back and forth from burning to stabbing. I just can't take it anymore. It's consuming my time.
I'm a 29yo female. I want to find out if i have fibromyalgia and would like to hear someone describe the feeling of the pain that comes with it? I am nervous about asking my doctor that he will think i'm a hypochondriac or brush me off. I have had chronic, heavy fatigue for the past 8 years or so. Headaches all the time, brain fog and memory problems. I have kind of just assumed that this was just me but it is extremely frustrating. I've never had a diagnosis.
I recently just found out my abdominal lymp nodes were swollen as well. I have already met with a cancer doctor and I'm seeing him again in a month. He also mentioned Lymphoma. But as for me I'm just taking it day by day. I don't know for sure that's what I have and intill I find out I'm not gonna worry. We've already talked about treatment which would be Chemo. but because I'm so young I should have a high sucsess rate.
said I looked like I had mono before and then had recurring mono and then the tonsilites. After a month ended up with the upper abdominal pain in right quadrant under front rib cage and around back. Also had hard time breathing. Dr. diagnosed Pleaursys. Took motrin helped some. Also gave medicine for allergies for leaukotrines (? if propper term) instead of antihistamines, helped a lot. Went back to Dr. after several months because, pleaurysis never would get better.
I do also have fibromyalgia so when this pain began, I was afraid I was having a flare up. I have bought a new mattress because I thought maybe that was the problem but it did not help. Years ago I had x-rays on my back and was told I had arthritis. Could it be some form of rthritis? I am also wondering if anyone else has found the answer to their very similar pain. I am 47 years old but most mornings I feel like I am 95, the pain does go away once I am up. Can anyone Please help.
