Common Questions and Answers about Stomach pain symptoms pulmonary embolism

stomach-pain

Pulmonary embolism (PE) is a blood clot in an artery of the lungs. The most common place for the clot to travel from is a vein in the legs. Most of the time this is due to some type of trauma to the legs, like a broken bone. However the clot could also come from a vein in the pelvis, the arm, the shoulder, or even the heart. Blood clotting problems can also cause blood clots to form in the lungs. Some people do not have any symptoms.
I’m 34 years old and have been getting terrible stomach pain for the past three weeks. It only happens when I eat but not with every meal. I feel it in the right side of my stomach and it can get really severe but then it goes away after a few hours as if nothing happened! I tried taking a few different types of antacids (Tums and Pepcid) and they didn’t help at all. Occasionally I get constipated but that is nothing new.
I am with a lung specialist also because I have had back pain and pleurisy type symptoms with sharp pains when breathing and was coughing blood in July. Pulmonary embolism was ruled out with d dimer test and was referred.....The lung specialist did all sorts of breathing tests and on examining found the hyperressonant sounds and dullness and crackling.......
If you have a suggestive history then this needs to be further investigated by a chest specialist. Pulmonary embolism is another possibility causing shortness of breath with chest pain. Another possibility is costochondritis (inflammation of the joint between rib and sternum. The inflammation around the joint area gives sharp pain on taking a breath. This can also cause tenderness on pressing the area which pains. An orthopedic doctor can diagnose this for you.
I thought it was heartburn so I called the gastroenterologist, he told me that acid reflux would not hurt there and not hurt that bad and it could be pneumonia or a pulmonary embolism and I needed to call my primary care dr. Are severe chest pains concurrent with those symptoms of asthma? A pulmonary embolism seems a little far fetched.
I had an ECG, chest x-ray, echo stress test, and chest CT with contrast to check for pulmonary embolism. Showed zero problems with my heart. Also had pulmonary tests but zero issues with lungs too. Then two weeks later the constant chest pressure became stomach pain. I also began to only be able to eat small amounts of food at a time. I was full like I had a whole dinner after just a few bites.

I WOULD LOVE TO BE ABLE TO GET UP AND CLEAN MY HOUSE THE WAY I WANT TO ANDWHEN I TRY I HAVE TO SIT BACK DOWN.. I JUST CANT DO IT... I GET SO MAD.

I had a pulmonary embolism this year. From which I have recovered fully. Hospital checked me inside out and found no cause. (But removed a thyroid in the process which turned out to be benign!) I do have slightly swollen ankles and foot pains sometimes, if that is relevant.
I am trying to talk myself out of thinking it a pulmonary embolism because I am not having any chest pain with it, or coughing which are common symptoms. Don't you have to have chest pain with shortness of breath to have PE, or not?
I still have the pain in my stomach. Its been two years now. I take pain meds for it but there is nothing else anyone seems to know about the pain. My current doctor has taken me off the Effexor because he said I didn't need it. That my pain is real but its pretty much a mystery. Its not a constant pain, it comes and goes. It is right under my chest bone, at the top of my stomach. I have no gall bladder, it was removed in 2004.
The pain is sharp and hurts only when I am lying down and when I breathe in. I was test for pulmonary embolism and it was negative. I don't have a lung infection. If I am sitting for a long period of time I can feel the sharp pain when I breathe in. It radiates up to my neck and around the side of my stomach, under the ribcage. The doctors were unable to tell me what the pain is coming from. I did not injury my back.
It also hurts in my throat when I take a deep breath or swallow. It is very uncomfortable to lay on my stomach because of this chest pain. It has lasted for almost a week now. What is this?
If no, then that would probably be my next test, to rule out pulmonary embolism, aortic aneurysm or dissection and congenital malformations.
Pleuritis and Pulmonary embolism are other possibilities causing shortness of breath with chest pain. A CT scan of the chest can rule out both. Chances are that you have esophageal reflux (GERD), where the food in your stomach is thrown up into your food pipe or esophagus. This also causes burning sensation or discomfort in the chest area. Another possibility is hiatal hernia, where a portion of stomach herniates into the chest cavity through the diaphragm.

This shoud have already been done with the tests you have had! So, does the doctor want to do further testing for pulmonary embolism? _____________________ >>>>Has a chronotropic incompetence been considered? Although several large-scale studies have established the prognostic value of the chronotropic response during exercise, the underlying mechanisms are not very clear. Chronotropic incompetence is generally believed to reflect an underlying autonomic nervous system imbalance.
If you were sent for CT scan they were probably worried about a pulmonary embolism, but instead found a pleural effusion which commonly causes the kind of pain you were experiencing, probably on the base of the left lung and irritating the diaphragm which can radiate to the shoulder.
I am 22 years old I had my gallbladder removed in April it with the laparoscopic procedure ever since I have experience severe upper abdominal pain on my right side that feels like it's coming from my ribs.
When you do, ask the doctor about the likelihood of pulmonary embolism. This is a blood clot in an artery of the lungs. However, your symptoms do sound more like those of indigestion or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) than anything else. Believe the chest symptoms are unrelated to migraine. Sounds like you are suffering from anxiety. The best way to deal with that is to go back to get the assurance that you don't have anything serious.

After eating I had severe chest pain. It was actually found when they suspected I had a pulmonary embolism on a scan(This was also causing me shortness of breath). What they did was told me to eat much slower, much smaller meals spread out over the day. Also, they gave me relgan to help keep my stomach empty. Immediately (and I'm talking two days after) giving birth, I never had the problem again. Google hiatal hernia and see what you think for yourself.

I saw the doctor about 14 months ago about this he believed it was muscular but sent me for a PE test (pulmonary embolism) and ecg both were clear. I do smoke cannabis regularly, this is something im trying to give up but i work for my self and have a lot of time on my hands find i smoke quite a bit.
The rib pain is mostly on the left and it started about a month and half ago then stoped for a few weeks and came back after one night when I felt like something was eating away at my stomach. The pain was sharp and it aswell faded in and out and everytime the pain cam I felt light headed. I did faint a Fay or 2 befor in the bath as well aster standing up to fast. Usualy the rib pain only stay for a minute or 2 but riight now it is constant and has been for like 20-30mintures! What is this???
Cough or heart problems like tricuspid valve problems too cause pain and discomfort in right chest area. Pulmonary artery hypertension or embolism too should be investigated. You must get your BP checked. It could also be a simple case of costochondritis. I would strongly recommend you see a physician about this. Hope this helps. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage without examining you. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
It gets worse when I walk. sometimes it feels like burning pain. I am taking pepcid AC thinking it might be my stomach, but didn't help. I used to be workhalic, excercised at least 3 - 5 times a week, but now I can't do any of that. This is consuming my life. I have 2 kids and all I do is lay down when I am at home. I went to another doctor I was told that I have minor regurgitation. It's not severe enough to cause these problems. I also get irregular heart beat some times.
Well, if you have chest pain with cracking noise and phlegm, then the possibility of pulmonary embolism should be ruled out. This would need a CT scan. This can be dangerous and hence an immediate consultation with a doctor is must. The other possibility is that it is due to acid reflux from the stomach. Take omeprazole empty stomach in the morning. Along with this take OTC antacid gel after all major meals. Eat your dinner early and then take a late night snack.
This can be due to bronchitis or pneumonia, lung cancers (especially in smokers), tuberculosis, bronchiectasis (a disease leading to dilatation of airways), pulmonary embolism (or clot in lung), or fungal and other infections. Do discuss this with your daughter’s doctor. Take care!
I have had this pain for several weeks. It feels like a sore muscle with stabbing pain. I am 40 years old and female in good health (I thought!!! hahaha) I have bad lower back pain and right hip pain for years....the inner thigh pain is also on my right side. Interestingly, my hip pain has improved since the new inner thigh pain. I have bone deterioration in my left foot and slight scolisis which makes me walk crooked....my foot doc said that I am not aligned.
Gastritis Stomach ulcers Hiatal hernia Stomach cancer Stomach polyps – pain is more likely in large masses.
