Avatar f tn Am having alot of upper right abdominal pain and referred pain to my right shoulder and back and chest. The dr has given me levsin which helps quite a bit with the abdominal pain but not with the constant pressure or the referred pain. Is there any treatment that will help with the referred pain?
Avatar f tn Shoulder pain following surgery is caused by the CO2 gas they use in the abdominal cavity to see the organs more clearly. Much of the gas gets trapped after they complete surgery and it can take several weeks for the body to rid itself of it. Sometimes the pain reaches the shoulder.
Avatar n tn Same here, had shoulder pain with my dermoids (both ovaries). Must be another symptom. What we women have to go through. It is amazing at what two little organs can do!!! My prayers are with you.
Avatar m tn I woke up one morning with a stiff neck and with more studying, I found the pain to be behind my right shoulder blade. I have tried many things. My doctor gave me some muscle relaxers in an attempt to make the muscle relieve it's tension. Also I have used a muscle stimulant on's a device that stimulates the muscle with electrical impulses that "work" the muscle. Tried about everything, but to no avail.
Avatar n tn One year ago, I started having chest pains/upper abdominal and right sided mid area pain that would go to the right back and up the shoulder blades and under the right rib cage. I also have burning pain and my stomach is distended and at times get nauseated. I have seen 2 doctors plus a pulmonologist. Upper GI Barium showed a sliding hiatal hernia and a possible stricture. Had Endoscopy and revelaed Grade 2 Esophagitis. Nexium 40mg x 2 a day. No help.
Avatar f tn I had my gall bladder removed over a year ago, and still have the right upper abdominal pain, which kind of radiates to my back and up my chest. Seems to involve my shoulder and arm also... I have been to the doctor and nothing can be found....I'm not sure what to do at this point...any suggestions?
Avatar f tn im having right abdominal pain for weeks..for some time i had fever with shivering esp at nigh..d pain is tolerable but its reoccuring,like d feeling when you have it appendicitis?i have hiatal hernia,is it connected to what im feeling right now?
Avatar n tn This time after a few days went by, I was getting up from doing something, and something happened in my neck and shoulder area. I had the most excusiating pain in my neck, shoulder and arm. I began getting these sharp stabbing pains down my right arm and also the right side of my chest and shoulder area. The pain was like no pain i've ever felt. It laid me up for about 4 days, just laying on the couch. I never went to the doctor due to insurace reasons.
Avatar n tn I had my gallbladder out 5 years ago because of some discomfort and gallstones shown on an ultrasound. About 5 hours after I awoke from surgery, I experienced an awful pain just below my sternum and I could not breath or talk and spent the next 3-5 hours in debilitating pain with vomiting. The surgeon just told me that I had a rough night. Anyways, I spent the next couple of years having these sporadic attacks of pain lasting around 5 hrs. on average.
Avatar n tn Some people have commented that they have had their gallbladders removed and still get upper right quadrant pain and right shoulder point pain. This for me started 5 years after my gall bladder removal- I have severe pain (7-10 out of 10 daily untreated by pain meds). I had an operation that removed severe adhesion, left me 1200 out of pocket even after pribate health etc.
Avatar m tn I have been having pain in my upper right abdomen (under my ribs) for a few weeks now. It is often sharp pain that also radiates to my shoulder, right arm, and back, especially between my should blades. The pain is always in the exact same spots, never moves lower or to the left. When my dr presses on that area, it is painful enough to bring tears to my eyes. I also often have nausea with the pain, but never vomited.
Avatar f tn Now it has been 2 months and what was an area that I could put pressure on with one finger has become a whole hand plus more and is a constant searing pain. The pain also migrates into my back and under my left shoulder blade. I have seen my family doctor as well as emergency room doctors. Urine tests have been done and there is no infection there. I used to be able to sit or lay down to alleviate the pain but sitting no longer helps and now I must lay on my right side to get relief.
Avatar f tn The second consequence is related to the lower GI tract, where diarrhea and colicky lower abdominal pain may result.[2] This article mainly addresses the general issues of PCS. PCS reportedly affects about 10-15% of patients. In this author's experience, PCS has occurred in 14% of patients.
Avatar f tn For about 5 weeks now I've had severe pain in my right lower abdominal area. When the pain started it was more bothersome like a period cramp then it won't hurt anymore for a day or 2 then I'm doubled over again for a series of days. I'm on Day #2 of shear misery. I'm slightly nauseous, little to no vomiting, hurts when I move, only relief comes from lying down with my legs extended, no major change in bowel habits, no fever........
Avatar n tn I've been reading all of these posts regarding "upper abdominal pain", specifically the ones mentioning pain under the right ribs. I've been trying to find a cause of my pain, which is similar to all of yours, except I can't say that what I have is PAIN. It's more of an ache, a dull kind of annoyance more than anything. It gets a little worse at times, but it's never as bad as all of yours seems to be.
Avatar f tn Upper right quadrant pain can be caused by the liver and gallbladder. Obtaining an abdominal ultrasound would be a reasonable initial test, along with blood tests looking at the liver enzymes. If negative, you can consider an upper GI series or upper endoscopy - which can look for various causes of dyspepsia such as GERD, an ulcer or inflammation of the upper digestive tract. I would also consider blood tests looking for the bacteria H Pylori - which is associated with ulcers or inflammation.
Avatar n tn My SOD pressure was 120 and a sphincterotomy was performed and a temp stint was put in. I had a wierd pain in my right shoulder for 4 days and now my RUQ pain has returned. Has anyone had a sphincteotomy that didn't work? If you did, what was your next step? Thanks so much for your help! I know how frustrating this can be.
Avatar n tn always tender to the right...pain in my chest. mid back, and shoulder blades..all tests normal for gallbladder...but i still seem to think that its my gallbladder....but the thing of it is that when this all started...i started to experience what seems like panic attacks...has anyone experienced panic attacks....had their gallbladder out...and the attacks were gone?????? thanx for any info.
Avatar n tn I have pain in my abdominal area, sometimes around my navel and sometimes around my upper abdominal area, it almost feels like it is right under my ribcage. It also hurts in my back sometimes lower, upper and middle of back. It also feels uncomfortable at times when I take a deep breath. Its not really pain but it feels full, its very weird. I was diagnosed with gastritis last year, but this is not the same pain. I am so worried that have something serious, and have not been able to sleep.
Avatar n tn but annoying) My pain is in lower back that somehow I feel the pain has something to do with the pain in my abdominal area connected through the muscles above my knees like having a menstrual cramps but not exactly as that painful. And they are not happening @ the same time just like you, lower back pain wakes me up early in the morning and it is gone after half/hr. I get up. My abdominal pain happens I think several hrs. after a meal but not each meal.
Avatar n tn in my under arm and somewhat into my breast, shoulder and shoulde blade, rib cage (side) and the back of my rib cage. The pain is mostley when I turn or twist. I have been to a pain mangement dr that put me on tryciclids (2 different kinds), my primary dr that said he thinks I have Fibromyalgia, a new primary dr that can't seem to think of anything, a chiropractor, and physical therapy. Nothing has helped. I have taken 4 different pain med, prozac, cymbalta, 3 different muscle relaxers.
Avatar f tn I wondered if anyone else has experienced neck/shoulder pains following this surgery. As others have mentioned, I have now developed some urge incontinence when my bladder is full. I will speak to my doctor next week at my six week check-up. I did have the surgery performed by a Uro-gynecologist and her team. It was performed at an highly recognized medical center known for excellence and I was confident in their performance.
Avatar n tn I'm a 35 year old female. I have been having a problem with lower right abdominal pain, that sometimes radiates to the lower right back, a lot of gas and bloating. I have been seen different doctors for this problem and I have had several tests performed, including blood tests (normal), urinalysis (normal), stool (normal), abdominal ultrasound (normal). Two years ago I had laparoscopic surgery where some ovarian cysts were removed. After the surgery, I still had the same pain.
Avatar m tn For about the past year, I have been having infrequent upper abdominal pain that recently has been followed with intense vomiting. The pain comes out of nowhere, and has started at random times throughout the day. The pain and pressure grow with intensity until I vomit, and then the pain is gone. I have tried taking some deep breaths, but that does not seem to help. The vomiting is so intense that the capillaries above my eyelids burst, leaving me with red "freckles.
