Common Questions and Answers about Pain in upper left abdomen


Avatar m tn In the past few weeks I've been experiencing pain in my upper abdomen that is more intense when I'm sitting. It's also uncomfortable to sleep on my side, I have to make sure to sleep on my back during the night. I'm a healthy 31 yr. old women who had surgery a couple of months ago to remove a cyst from a ovary. Could this be a side effect from the surgery that was months ago?
Avatar m tn I have been having a pain in my upper left abdomen on and off for months. Earlier this year, I went to the ER twice becuase I began worrying so much about the pain that it made it seem much worse than it actually was. The pain itself is on my left side underneath my ribcage. When I notice the pain, it's not very severe, maybe 3 out of 10 but it tends to make me worry. I've been to my FP doc numerous times and had blood work done. All of the tests came back negative everytime.
Avatar f tn I have been having this pain in my upper left abdomen, under left breast. I've had a mammography, and all is normal. The pain is occasional. Has anyone had this? I'm having a colonscopy in a few days, but I don't think the test goes that far into the abdomen. I have had a colonoscopy 8 years ago and all was fine. If anyone has had this, please let me know.

Avatar n tn I have had pain in my upper left abdomen for almost 2 months. I had a 3 1/2" cyst on my kidney and they drained it thinking it was the problem. I am still experiencing the same pain. It is isolated and about the size of a silver dollar and felt right beneath my rib and I can also feel it in my back. The urologist said if it wasn't the cyst it must be gastro and did not ask to see me again. The cat scan shows no diverticulitis, and no abnormalties other than the cyst.

Avatar f tn Aside from muscular issues, this could also be due to gall bladder stones which usually presents with sudden and rapidly intensifying pain in the upper right portion or center of the abdomen just below the breastbone, back pain between the shoulder blades or pain in the right shoulder.

Avatar m tn ve been experiencing a strange pulsating feeling in my upper abdomen, I have no pain whatsoever, and it happens rarely, still I think it's a bitt strange, because until now I've never noticed it...

1661778 tn?1307049902 been having the rib pain in the left upper abdomen again (still taking vicodin after wisdom tooth removal, so I know that wasn't it). I've noticed it becomes worse when I have a very full stomach. It's still a very tolerable pain. Sometimes it even feels like a runners "side stitich" but is way more of a discomfort that an actual "ouch". My burping while eating/after drinking seems to have decreased though. Luckily, still no recurrence of acd reflux.

10791691 tn?1412820023 Hi, I have been experiencing pain in my upper abdomen for the past few months. The doctors thought it was Appendicitis at first, because the pain was in the lower abdomen at first, and took me off food, scanned my abdomen, did everything they were supposed to do for Appendicitis, but they found nothing out of the ordinary. Fast forward to another month or so. The pain moved upwards, to my upper abdomen, and the doctors couldn't help me at all.
