1511025 tn?1290133257 Pain and discomfort on the lower left side of abdomen just below and to the left of navel can be due to several causes such as Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, infection in kidney, kidney stones, adhesions, polycystic ovary in females, IBS, constipation, and an abscess in rectus abdominis muscle or psoas muscle. Since you do not have a lump or a tender hot spot, in all probability it is not a muscle.
Avatar m tn Afterwards, when the diarrhea eases up, I get this pain on my left side just below the ribs (I believe it is right about where the top of my stomach/pancreas) is located. It is actually painful to the touch. Last night it woke me up. I felt around and found the exact spot which really hurt bad. I got up and took a tums. That worked. I went back to sleep, woke up this morning and the pain is gone, so is the soreness. So, what is that? Could it be a gas pocket?
Avatar f tn I have a pain in my left side, below my ribs. It seems to be focused at different areas all the time. It will be around where my pelvic bone is, or it will be just below the ribs. Sometimes even around my back, tho less often there. It feels like a stabbing pain. And it comes & goes. Is this related to my bowels? My ovaries (I'm past menopause), something else? I had 2 C-sections (which were done badly) & have a scar stretching from one side to the other.
Avatar f tn I have had extreme pain on my left side for two days now. It is right below my left breast underneath my ribcage. I had x-rays and c-scan yesterday and they saw nothing. My pain can be excruciating at times! The only relief I get is when I apply a lot of pressure to that area. It is very frustrating not knowing exactly what is wrong with me!
Avatar n tn I have had exact same symptoms-left upper abdominal pain under left ribs, lasts several hours, sometimes severe.Never hurts while I am sleeping. Recent lab work, xray, endoscopy, and ct show nothing. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Ive been in pain for several months.

Avatar f tn they ran blood tests (which were normal) , did a CT Scan which showed a mass on the left side 7cm by 9cm but my right side appeared normal. They also did a UA which was normal.....I went to my family doctor and she did a transvaginal ultrasound of my ovaries....I am frustrated as I told her the pain was much higher than my ovaries (ovaries were normal by the way). The pain comes and goes I may go 3 days without it or 3 weeks, but when it hits it is horrible.
Avatar n tn The main thing is a cramping that occur frequently, right around the bottom of my ribs on the right side, on the front side not back - this happens 3-4 times a week during the day lasting an hour or two, and almost every night right before I go to sleep, its very consistent and it isn't necessarily about lieing down, unless my body is anticipating lieing down or something?

759610 tn?1234258961 I have been expericing pain on the left side below the ribs. It started in late dec 08.

Avatar m tn The pain may start as a severe pain in the side, back, and below the ribs, which may spread to the lower abdomen and groin. The pain comes in waves and fluctuates in intensity, and may be associated with nausea, vomiting, fever, and chills if an infection is present. Other common symptoms include pain during urination, persistent urge to urinate, and frequent urination. You may also notice pink, red, brown, or cloudy and foul-smelling urine.
Avatar f tn Is it normal to have pain high on your left side, right below the ribs after sleeping on that side too long? I try my best to stay on my left side because it is recommended for better blood flow but after a few hours it is painful. Anyone else have this?
Avatar f tn I bent forward slightly and felt a burst of pain in my upper left side below my left breast. The next day I had a shooting pain from the same area (upper left ribs) to my back that gradually got worse as the day progressed. By the time I went home I was in agony and I noticed that my left ribs were protruding out significantly. I went to the ER and they took an Xray and said that everything looked in place and nothing looked broken.

Avatar f tn I am a 26 year old female, and for the last year or so I have had pain on my left side. It started with my ribs feeling tender and bruised, but I have not had any trauma to them. Now for the last 5 months the pain has become worse and mostly constant. Along with new symptoms. Left sided abdominal tenderness that extends to my flank , reflux, and occasional constipation. I do not have insurance and have found it hard to find a doctor willing to let me make payments for visits.
Avatar f tn Where at on your left side? Lower left could be ligament pain, which is stretching and hurts REALLY bad. Upper could be your ribs.
Avatar f tn I have a lump on the right side of my abdomen. It's just below my ribs. When I lay on my left side I can feel it and move it. It will move all the way over to my bellybutton. I don't have any pain, but when my fiance pushes on it just right it makes me jump. It's a wierd feeling but it doesn't necessarily hurt, it's hard to describe. Is this something I should be worried about?
Avatar m tn Its like a stomach cramp centralized at one point on my lower left above my hip and below where my ribs start. My stool is normal, no burning or blood of any kind.
319281 tn?1238542923 So im 23 weeks pregnant and this morning after eating breakfast, i got a sharp pain in my abdomen that went up to my rib on my left side. It only lasted for a few secs but it was killer. I was wondering if this is just round ligament pains or what it was. Or could it be another braxton hicks contraction (i've had some of those) this one just didnt feel like that. Any insight would be great!!! Thanks.
