Fibromyalgia upper abdomen

Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia upper abdomen


Avatar f tn neck, shoulders, upper back, lower back, hips, chest, breast bone (especially to the sides of it), left arm, abdomen Muscles are tender when I touch them, especially arms and thighs Hypoglycemia Weight Gain I've had heart tests, stomach tests, blood tests. Nothing shows up. I'm getting very frustrated and discouraged! Does this sound like it could be fibromyalgia? My only "tender spots" that react for me are my elbows, hips and inner knees (not as painful as hips and elbows).
Avatar n tn I have Fibromyalgia and now they are checking me for Cushings is there any relationship?
Avatar n tn Fibromyalgia pain may arise from one of the lower ribs, and is pretty localized. Other painful spots are typical in fibromyalgia - in hips, upper back and so - you've probably allready seen some picture about this. Liver pain is more diffuse and located below the wide part of the lowest right rib.
Avatar m tn Hello, For the last year or so, I've had an odd pain and tingling sensation in my upper left abdomen, immediately below the ribs. This isn't constant, but when it occurs, it usually lasts for a week or two. When it's there, there is definite tenderness when I poke the area, and the pain is a sharp pain, maybe a 3 out of 10 on the pain scale. I haven't been able to link any other circumstances (menstrual cycle, eating habits, etc) to this pain.
Avatar f tn I have developed R sided burning of the tounge, ringing in my R ear and now I am having difficulty swallowing and it feels like my throat is closing. I have had what seems the full work up. Upper/lower GI studies, MRI of abdomen and brain, all showing nothing. I officially have a dx of fibromyalgia and B 12 deficiency, but I continue to struggle with everyday life, with pain and the sx in my mouth,ear and now throat. I do not do well on Western medicine relative to the side effects.
Avatar n tn Now, symptoms include achy/stiff at different times, especially when getting up in the morning, Numbness/tingling in face, down both arms, and occasionally upper thighs. Blurry vision-especially in right eye-this never completely goes away but it does improve. Eyes are very light sensitive at times. Hip joints hurt severly at times-usually at least 2 or 3 times a month. Palpitations. Achy/Stiff. Severe Fatigue. I will have 'spells' where I feel like I'm freezing cold.
Avatar m tn IBS symptoms- sometimes upwards of 10 bowel movements per day everything from constipation to diarrhea. Pain in my upper right abdomen below/behind my ribs. back pain off to both sides of my lower spine radiating down my buttocks. I really don't know what all this means but I had thyroid checked back in 07 and everything was normal. I don't know what kind of tests to ask for. I am SO SICK of feeling this way- honestly, I would rather die.
Avatar f tn I've been trying like crazy to come to some conclusion as to why I have been suffering with the chronic muscle pain in my neck and at the base of my skull and upper back. I've had joint swelling and stiffness. I can't get a good night's sleep and have a feeling of "fullness" in my head all the time (feels like a vise around my head) my migraines are cyclical and are controlled pretty well with the topamax but I have had significant weight loss recently.
Avatar n tn I have been suffering with pain and hard swelling in my middle / upper abdomen for some time now especially if i eat or drink. I do take Nexium for my stomach and I have had my gallbladder removed. I also suffer from Fibromyalgia and take Fybogel mebeverine and domperidome for IBS.
Avatar m tn However all the worrying sent me into a spiral of depression and anxiety, but I have been getting these horrible physical symptoms as well, of which I think must be caused by fibromyalgia. I bad full blood tests which all came out normal, except for a slightly lowered amount of calcium. My symptoms all started since I came back from Lanzarote. I get very bad muscle and joint aches which are much worse under pressure.
Avatar n tn I have been having sharp pains in my upper abdomen, and I feel hungry a lot. But after I eat it hurts worse and takes an hour for it to calm down. I don't usually have a big appetite (I weigh 100 pounds and I'm 14, I know I'm underweight) and I have a fat metabolism. Do I need to eat better foods? Please help, I've been close to tears because of this pain.
Avatar n tn However for last 10 months I am feeling pain/pressure in my left upper abdomen. Initially it was an occasional feeling of pressure that came and go (there could be whole week of feeling ok). In last 3-4 months the pressure changed into pain and the pain is almost all the time there. I will list my symptoms: - pain/pressure in left upper abdomen. There is hardly an hour when I do not feel it. Sometimes it lasts for minutes, sometimes for hours. On 1 to 10 scale I would say it is around 2-3.
Avatar f tn Generally there is no cause. However it can be due to infection, blow, injury, or fibromyalgia. It usually goes away on its own. Otherwise it can be treated with muscle relaxants, and non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs. It can also be muscle pull. Shingles can also start this way. If you have pain under your right rib then there could be a liver infection, pancreatitis, or a gall bladder problem. Get a liver function test, ultrasound or CT of abdomen, and pancreatic enzymes.
Avatar n tn I am in desperate need of some help/guidance. I have been dealing with constant upper back pain (mainly between shoulder blades) since May 5th.I am a 25 year old male and I went snowboarding for the first time in my life on March 30th. For the month of April, I was not very active. I work out regularly with weight and running but I did not do much. I was sore for the 1st week after snowboarding but it subsisded fairly quickly.

Avatar n tn For the last few months (about 10) I have had an ache in the upper right quadrant of my abdomen. The symptoms I have are as follows. I get constipated a lot (sometimes it feels like I really have to go and nothing) Stools sometimes have a thin shape and sometimes are normal Mucus in stools and sometimes bright blood (traces) I have a bad cough that seems to come and go but usually occurs if I change position am nervous or just ate (ice cream especially).
Avatar n tn Just a few minutes ago, I got this really strange feeling in my lower abdomen. Like a fluttery feeling. I thought..."Okay, that was weird. Maybe it was just nothing." About a minute later, I got it again. Pause. And again. I've never felt anything like it, before. I felt it coming from my uterus, area.
Avatar n tn I'm a 36 year old male who eats well, exercises regularly, and lives a reasonably healthy lifestyle. Four month ago I started having pangs of pain in my right upper quadrant, just under my ribcage. I couldn't indentify any obvious pattern (e.g. pain after eating a fatty meal), but I did notice I felt it often at night. Concerned, I saw my primary care physician who suggested it might be a gall bladder problem. I had a blood test done for liver function, it came back normal.
Avatar n tn For many years since l990 while I was pregnant with my son I began having sever pain in my upper abdomen just below my sternum. They have done ct scans, EGD's, 24 hour probe, removed my gallbladder thinking that was the problem. There is no certain thing that sets this off. No pattern, no burning in my chest. The pain radiates into my chest and back. They said I have esophogeal spams, yet there is no burning only sever pain and I have to go and have a pain shot.
Avatar f tn I was recently diagnozed with Hepatitis C. I've also had pain in the upper left abdomen area which moves around - under rib cage, to the back, below the ribs, etc. Could this be related to the Hep C and what is this a sign of? I've had some x-rays done and they came back clear.

Avatar f tn Cramping was so severe I was curled up in a chair and unable to move for about 15 minutes then it cleared and I felt nauseous the rest of the night. Then I noticed a constant nagging pain in the upper part of my abdomen on the right side, right under my lower ribs. This moves around to my back on the upper right side and occasionally moves all the way across to the left side of my back. And this is now a pretty low constant throb. it gets sharp at times then back to a throb.
Avatar f tn Its only been a week though so I'm not very concerned. Though my upper abdomen pain keeps getting worse. I actually ended up going to the ER.
868038 tn?1239506745 I think I will call my disability case worker and try to get more health coverage since my husband was laid off and we lost our insurance, I do have Lupus, Fibromyalgia and Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome. I don't know what to do I am getting scared. Any Suggestions?
Avatar n tn I am currently seeing a GI doctor to try to figure out what is causing my right upper quadrant pain and pressure. I'm a 30 yr.old healthy female that has had RUQ pain and pressure off and on for the past 3 years. About 3 weeks ago, I had another "attack" which landed me in the ER. They did an abdominal U/S which was negative, pelvic u/s which was negative, CT scan which was also negative, as well as blood work and urine. They referred me to GI the next day. The GI dr.
Avatar n tn I am a 39 year old female. For the past 2 1/2 months I have been experiencing upper left quadrant abdominal pain. It tends to localize below my ribs but above the navel, about 3 inches left of center. My side also gets tender and my mid back gets muscle spasmy. The pain has sometimes feels like a very tender pulled muscle, but also will feel like a sharper twinge (similar to what I've experienced sometimes when jogging).
Avatar n tn I have had MRIs of low back, mid back and CT scans of pelvis and abdomen and also back xrays and a full body bone scan. All were "unremarkable". I am amazingly stiff right in the morning, sometimes it eases up as soon as I shower, other times, like this morning, it's taking alot longer. Now, I have had lots of blood tests, CReactive Protein was high >10 and my latest was an ANA panel - I am awaiting the results of this.
