Avatar f tn I just remember reading something about left side pain radiating to the back. Hope you get to feeling better.
Avatar m tn I use my back alot at work.I noticed that in the middle of my back (approximately where the ribs start) muscle pain on each side of the spine. It seems to flare up when I walk,sort of a dull achy feeling,then into a more cramping and squeezing feeling.Then it seems to radiate to the ribs and to the abdomen at times.Any suggestions or advice on this?

1474579 tn?1287028375 Hello Ruby, Welcome to the Pain Management Forum. I am sorry to hear about your continuing pain. Have you had an MRI of your spine? I would want to rule out possible spinal structure issues as a pain causation. I don't think you would be out of line to request an EKG of your cardiac activity. This would also help you put to rest heart problems. Once those two tests are completed and negative you will have less possibilities to consider.
Avatar n tn The pain due to adhesions can be a dull ache, a shooting pain, a pain as though your intestines are being pulled out or a pain that appears to rip the abdomen apart. The type of pain that develops depends on the degree of adhesions and the internal organs that are feeling the pull of these adhesions. The adhesions cannot be diagnosed by any tests or imaging. Only diagnosis is by laproscopy and treatment is cutting the adhesions. Scar tissues can also result in adhesions.
Avatar n tn So now I guess it is back to the internet to find out what that means. I am beginning to wish they had left well enough alone. I had only one attack after 2 yrs of having my galbladder out and WHAM everyone got excited. This is not worth all the pain and trouble they are causing. Now I know what they mean when they say "If it isn't broke DON'T fix it." Before it was pancreatic sphincer hypertension, now it could go back to that plus scar tissue blocking it from the cut they did.
1134902 tn?1296069744 I had the same symptoms with an ulcer. Is the back pain higher up on the back than the stomach pain and sort of burning/boring?
Avatar f tn Now I am having severe pain from my lower back that radiates to my hips where it is unbearable. The pain continues to my lower stomach and groin area down to my legs. I only have one ovary on the left and that is where it is very tender. At first I thought it was kidney stones, but it wasn't. It happened one day that lasted 24 hrs. It didn't return until one month later, and now it hurts everyday. I had an MRI last week which showed possible annular tear, with degenerative L3,4 &5.
Avatar n tn Are you male or female? Does the pain change week to week or is it always the same level of pain? And do you feel any pain in your abdomen?
1170411 tn?1263412058 The back of my neck hurts, and the pain radiates down to my shoulders and my back, mostly in the lower back. And sometimes I feel that the pain from my lower back radiates down to my thigh and its like a cramping feeling. I also get a tingly feeling throughout my limbs. Just now, my stomach hurts.. like below my belly button, not a stomach ache, but stomach pain. I don't know what's going on. Is this something I should be concerned about?
96108 tn?1197694930 I even had sleep tests.The docs just do not want to beleive that the bloating/IBs can cause back or neck pain and seem not to able to do anything to releive this problem. Gas x works better for me that all of the meds you mentioned and gasx only works 25% of the time..
Avatar n tn Stomach pain that radiates to the back often suggests pancreatitis, but it's usually a pretty severe pain. Could be the h. pylori is back, or just a general gastritis. For celiac disease there's a blood test you can take, but if you have no bowel symptoms it's probably not that - plus you would probably notice the association with eating wheat. There is a blood test for it if you're still unsure. Keep at it and you'll eventually find the answer. Good luck.
Avatar n tn Mainly my upper stomach for the past 3 weeks. This last week it has turned into severe stomach pains and radiates to severe pain in my middle to lower back. I was released from the hospital a couple of days ago with severe diarrhea. The doctor said i had a stomach virus. But now that i have come home my pain is worsening, sometimes unbearable and it stays in the same area. My diarrhea has been gone for 2 days now so i dont beleive this is still a virus. Can you please give me any suggestions?
Avatar f tn I just had an episode where my stomach suddenly starts hurting really bad and then the pain radiates to my lower back. It was so painful that I balled up on the floor. My body felt really hot and I felt I needed to take really deep breaths to breath right?
Avatar n tn And yes I have gone to the hospital too. The pain doesnt radiate to the left of right, it is straight from front to slightly upper back. It feels like a burning or tearing it's not a sharp pain here or there or a pulsing pain. It is not heartburn, I've tried that route too. I have it again now, I took a perk and 3 hours later it was back, obviously because it never left. I am sick of masking the pain, any help would be greatly appreciated.
1572591 tn?1299450330 then all of a sudden tonight I am getting horrible lower back pain and pain that goes to the front of my stomach and it hurts like hell. It stuck around for about 1-2 minutes then went away. This is the first time this happened so far but I dont know what caused it and this is the first time I have experienced it as well. My period is not heavy for real...ive had maybe 3 or 4 very small blood clots...sorry if TMI....
Avatar n tn It is like a burning, squeezing, kind of pain that radiates throught to the back and takes your breath away. The only thing that will occasionally help it is a glass of milk or eating some bread. I usually have a lot of air in my stomach after the pain subsides and then have to burp a lot. I have been doing some research on the internet and have found these symptoms to be typical of either gastritus or a peptic ulcer. Also somebody told me to ask the doctor about a hiatal hernia.
910342 tn?1242751843 This seems even worse at nite, I constantly have roll side to side to ease the pain, and laying on my stomach is a death wish. Other symptoms are extreme fatigue, I feel exausted with the smallest of tasks. I also have massive heartburn and have had loose bowels for about 2yrs.Been taking prolosec repeatedly. My ankles kill after extended periods of time on my feet. Also it seems weird that my stomach is so hard when it appears I am about 20lbs overweight..shouldn't that fat be soft?
Avatar n tn am having pain in my right side, middle chest area and it radiates to the middle of my back nothing eases it at times i feel nasuated
Avatar f tn now my symptoms have been different recently..I have pain in my upper abdomen that radiates to my back..pale colored stools,belching and gas. I also seem to have to use the bathroom fairly soon after eating or I face discomfort.I have no medical insurance so am at my whits end as to what to do??? Someone suggested aloe vera juice ..was wondering if this would help? A month or so ago I had an ultra sound done on my gallbladder but results came out fine...
Avatar f tn would anything other then pancreatitis cause epigastric pain that radiates to the back?,,,that comes and goes. i get it,but i dont get the throwing up,or the hospital visits i hear about from pancreatitis. i have not lost weight,dont throw up,the pain feels like a cramp in my diahpram,goes into back,,ive had amalyes/lipase checked,2 ct scans with barrium and iodine contrast,and they dont see anything,,,no stones,enlargments,hernia,nothingwhat elce could this be?
Avatar n tn you dont say where the pain is located in the upper abdomen is it on the irght as Gall Bladder Attack is very painful and is located on the right under the rib cage and radiates up to the shoulder and even into the Back. There seems to have been a lot recantly I have noticed I had this about 3 weeks ago it was severe but now is almost gone, I have wondered if there was a virus out there .See a Doc if it continues, or try not eatinf Fatty food go to Low Fat, as eating seems to trigger the pain.
Avatar n tn I have pain in my stomach.. feels bloated under sternum .. pain radiates to back and left side of body.. I get chills.. hurts for last happened two years ago after i had pizza that was greasy. .. don't know what happened last night.. baths relieved the pain..
Avatar n tn ,,thats very hard to pinpoint things,,,like i said though,,the only thing that realy pops up when you check into the pain in the upper abdomen that radiates to the back is gullbladder or pancreas... check out sphincter of oddi dysfunction..cealic disease..where you cant eat wheat and stuff like that. i just dont know anymore,and without thousands of dollars,or great insurance they will let you die in this country.
Avatar n tn I have been awakkened in the middle of the night with pain in my stomach which radiates to my jaw. This pattern of pain goes back to when my GERD problems began in 1992. In 1992, I received my first endoscopy and colonoscopy and at that time a biopsy of my stomach revealed that I did have the h.pylori (sp.?) bacteria and I was treated accordingly. The pain symtoms went away at the time, but have recurred several times over the years.
