Left side pain causes

Common Questions and Answers about Left side pain causes


Avatar n tn For years had symptoms and pinpoint low back pain and left bottom-end rib pain. Also in this quadrant=pain. Nothing on Right. Liver? I just found new tests (beyond the basics) I would like to take-for carcinoid syndrome! Ultrasound says OK? All unsure what causes pain, even Hepotologists! so I should clear HCV first and then see? Anybody similar pain? Only have hypertension besides. Aorta pressure?
Avatar f tn Please go through this and see if something was missed . 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, constipation (this you do not have), 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 f tn Hi how are you I have been suffering from pain in my left side. ive been to the doctors a good many times. most of them all say its to do with muscle. but my pain is usually the top half or middle back pain. I suggest to try to some back exercises you can find them even on YouTube to strengthen that part of your back. it is all to do with posture maybe even try sleeping on your right side I have been trying to do that.
Avatar n tn If someone grabs my side or hits me in my left side i almost imediatly go into shock and start to shake from the pain. Another doctor said it could be in my nerves but where the pain is they couldn't test the nerves down there they tested they up near my spin which was normal. I don't know where to go from here.
Avatar f tn I have diverculitis which causes left side pain, and also had ovarians cysts which didnt show up in ultra sound i had a lap which confirmed the cysts.My gastro told me that IBS is for life and doesnt always show up in colonoscopy only if you happen to be suffering symptoms during my lap it also showed alot of adhesions. I hope this my help in your quest for treatment.
Avatar n tn Hi, there could be many causes for the pain you are experiencing. If the pain starts at the back and goes down to the front of the abdomen, it could most probably be a renal colic. This happens when urine is trying to pass through an obstruction usually a stone. But this pain is very severe and colicky. This can also cause dizziness and vomiting. Considering your altered bowel habits the pain could be due to infections of the bowel and bladder or inflammatory diseases of the colon.
Avatar f tn I am experiencing pain on my left side near the abdoman area from front to back. The skin there is tender to the touch. My stomach seems to be swollen. Should I be concerned?
Avatar f tn I have had this left side abdominal pain for well over 1 year. I have had many tests done including, MRI, Ultrasound, blood work. I did have my gall bladder removed in february..and thougth maybe that would cure my pain....but it has not gone away...some days are worse than others and it is rare but has happened to go for a 1-2 days with no pain...but mainly it is constant. It ranges just below the ribs and can sometimes radiate toward the back...
Avatar f tn I sleep on both sides. I even sleep on my back sometimes and I'm 39 weeks.
20752794 tn?1505479079 I'm having Left Side Chest Pain Continuously For 4 Days.Not Heart related(ECG report ok). It Increases If I Turn Left And Goes Away Almost 95% If I Turn Right.I Had Lung Infection 2 Months Ago (Treated). Breathing Does Not Effect It.But it pains quite a lot.I Had cold the day before it started.doctor said some muscle or rib growth may be causing the pain. He gave me painkillers.But my pain did not go away a bit.I had them just once today.
Avatar f tn Muscle cramps could be due to inactivity, sleeping on one side-left side, electrolyte imbalances like calcium, vitamin D deficiency, magesium and potassium deficiency due to dehydration or dietary insufficiency. Consult a physician for evaluation who will assess your symptoms clinically along with the relevant blood test like serum electrolytes and vitamin D levels. Management would depend on the cause.
Avatar n tn I lifted something kinda heavy and for the past 12 hours or so my left side of my groin has an uncomfortable feeling when i'm sitting. When standing it feels as if right under my stomach to my left side is under a little strain and this feeling extends to my left groin area. I'm also feeling slight discomfort in my left scrotum standing and sitting. There isn't any visible swelling, the left groin area is a little bit tender. What should I do ?
Avatar f tn My understanding of nerve structure leaves me (and everyone else it seems) bewildered by the numbness and pain, as it occurs in my left leg and left arm at the same time. The MRI I had looked for a trapped nerve in my cervical spine, they found nothing, though the specialist did say due to the on and off nature of the numbness the result wasn't concrete. But based on my understand a trapped nerve in the cervical spine cannot cause numbness in the left leg?
Avatar f tn Overweight. Not sexually active. I have had pain in my left side for about 4 days. A dull pain, not sharp. I am not constipated, moving things at a regular pace. Pain is to the left of the belly button and occassionally on the far left side above the hip. BP 136/30, had a urinalysis which was normal. A slight tenderness over left hip when touching. No nausea or vomiting. I have had intermittent diarrhea or constipation for years. No fever. Have not had this dull pain before.
Avatar f tn When I breathe deeply, I feel quite sharp pain in the back of my left lung/side and a smaller amount of pain in the front of my left side just below my heart. I am a 19yr old female and I dont smoke or drink, although I have lived my life around a smoker. This pain started last night randomly and came literally out of nowhere, it hurts when I change position of my left arm but its not muscle strain as I havent done anything strenuous to my body.
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'm 47 yrs. old, have had a complete hysterectomy 10 yrs ago and have had saline implants for 17 yrs. The passed 3 months I've had breast pain on the left side, mostly upper quadrant and under my left arm. Also burning pain on the right mid area of my left brest. It is sometimes very sharp pain in that area. My breast often feels heavy, but that seems to come and go.
Avatar m tn its been little over a year i been having pain in my chest (left side) right above the nipples. some times i also feel burning kind of pain in my back (Right behind where it hurts from front). Funny thing is i cannot simulate pain when i rub or press the Spot, but internally i feel kind of soreness or maybe discomfort. i went to many different doctor and did blood tests, ECG, Sonogram of heart , but everything came out normal.
Avatar f tn Kidney disorders too produce colicky and sharp pain. Sometimes anxiety with flatulence can cause this pain. If the pain persists, you will need to consult your primary care physician for proper evaluation of pain and therapy. Regards.
Avatar n tn ve had some pain in my upper left and right chest area at different times and not lasting long. The pain is not bad and it doesn't last long and it is usually accompanied with belching or gas. I also have a history of asthma too. Any idea of what might be causing this pain since initial test seem to rule out cardiac problems. No one in my family has a history of cardiac problems either.

Avatar f tn It hurts more if I put pressure on my left side or if I lay down on either side. The pain is sharp at times and dull at others. When I have attemped to lay on my left side the pain not only hurt on my side but also the lower left portion of my back. Sometimes it feels as if there is abnormal pressure on my left side but at other times it does not. These are my primary symptoms, however a week ago I also had what felt like a muscle spasm originate from the painful area below my left rib...
Avatar f tn ve been having pretty bad abdominal pain on my left side above my belly button. I was just wondering if it could be chiari related. I hate to go to the hospital if they're just going to think I'm crazy. It's been so difficult to get dx, I've really developed a dislike for going to dr. Anyone else have this symptom?
