Avatar f tn I got some infection in my mouth mocosa, then pharynx, esophagus and stomach. Upper abdomen was so swollen and tight that respiratory movements were difficult. Now the symptoms have vanished but I sometiomes get tightness in my upper abdomen when walking. Could this be from the diaphragma, or esophagus or stomach? A coronary artery disease has been excluded from possible causes. I have also had joint problems.

Avatar m tn I have occasional stomach cramps it lasts about 20-30 minutes per attack happening several times per week but lately daily.

Avatar n tn I would further investigate the stomach and upper digestive tract, which can result in left upper abdominal pain. This can be done with an upper endoscopy, which can exclude GERD, inflammation or an ulcer. REFLUX. WOULD THAT STAY IN ONE SPOT FOR 2 MONTHS? INFLAMMATION? WOULD THE ANTIBIOTIC TAKE CARE OF IT? WOULD IT BE IN ONE SPOT FOR 2 MONTHS? ULCER? WHAT DO YOU DO WITH THAT? If negative, a colonoscopy can be performed to look for lower GI causes. WHAT COULD WE FIND IN A COLONSCOPY?

Avatar f tn An upper GI endoscopy need to be done to look in to the esophagus, stomach and duodenum. An ultrasound scan abdomen should be done to assess the status of liver and spleen. Sometimes bleeding from the upper GI tract may be responsible for the blood in stools. But it can also be due to causes in the colon and rectum. So to start with you need to undergo upper GI endoscopy and ultrasound scan abdomen.
