Abdominal Pain Full Bladder
They're Connected: The bladder is connected to the flank (kidney) via the ureter, so this is likely involved. There is more to your story, which might help figure this out: history of kidney stones? History of bladder infections or kidney infections? My best guesses based on your story are that you either have (1)reflux of urine from the bladder back up the ureter or (2) a stone in the ureter. See a urologist. ...Read more
The bladder is a muscular organ in the pelvis that accepts urine from the kidneys, stores the urine at low pressure, & expels the urine during voluntary voiding. Though seemingly a simple reservoir, the bladder is a complex organ intricately connected with the brain and spinal cord with sensory, motor, and autonomic circuits. The muscular layer that contracts during voids ...Read more
Constant right flank/back, intermittent abdominal and epigastric pain+no fever+no urine or bowel symptoms+history of bladder cancer and hysterectomy?
Constipation?: It is not uncommon that bowel and bladder problems coincide and can lead to complaints of abdominal discomfort or cramping as well as frequency urgency and occasional incontinence. Liw hydration status can also lead to headaches. I would start with trying to have a normal soft banana consistency stool daily and see if that helps resolve all three problems. ...Read more
Chronic lower back pain 3weeks after gall bladder removal as well as pain in lower back & abdomen when passing bowel motion?
Common problems: Back pain is common after abdominal surgery due to position on the operating table. Problems with bowel movements are also common, due to pain meds and stress of surgical procedure and general anesthesia. These should all slowly get better within 6-12 weeks after the operation. There is of course high variability Amon individuals. Hope this helps! ...Read more
Differential for RUQ: Anatomically, the right upper quadrant (RUQ) of the abdomen includes: liver, gallbladder, pancreatic head, bile ducts and ampulla, c-loop of the duodenum, stomach antrum and pylorus, the hepatic flexure of the colon. Don't forget the diaphragm and lower chest are pretty close by. The abdominal musculature, ribs, and skin can all contribute as well to localizing RUQ pain. An exam is appropriate. ...Read more
I am experiencing upper abdominal pain, bloating or abdominal fullness, abdominal discomfort, fatigue and abdominal pain (all over) (severity: mil...
Doctor can evaluate: Many things are in the upper abdomen: stomach, pancreas, liver, small intestine, gall bladder, large intestine, abdominal muscles, etc... An exam by a primary care doctor can help figure things out. Pain in the right upper abdomen, especially with symptoms that occur after eating, can be due to gallstones or other gall bladder disease. A doctor can evaluate for gall bladder or other problems. ...Read more
No fever, normal bowel movements, etc. Only mild abdominal pain in lower quadrant near appendix last 3 days. Appendicitis?
Lower right quadrant abdominal pain, pain spreading across abdomen and into groin, nausea, vomiting and constipation? (Female)
Go see your doctor: Without more information (how long? how severe? pain w movement? related to period? fevers?), I'd say you need to be seen by a doctor right away who can examine your abdomen and gather more information. Might be as simple as gastritis, but may be much more serious, like ovarian torsion or appendicitis, both of which can be surgical emergencies. Call your doc now, or go to the ER if you're worried! ...Read more
Hemorrhoids likely.: This is likely due to hemorrhoids. The history strongly suggest it, since pain is after a bowel movement, and likely associated with straining. It could be anal fissure, or possibly another colon/anal issue. Depending on your age, and if this has been going on a while, you might want to see your doctor to get a rectal exam/testing to make sure it is not worse, like cancer, etc.. ...Read more
Could be serious: If you had recent surgery. Without further details, impossible to tell anything further. See a doctor for accurate diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more
Maybe, but...: Causes of recurrent abdominal discomfort as described may be identified by first addressing signs/symptoms so as to localize the organ involved: in women: vaginal discharge or bleeding, alteration in periods, pregnancy risk? Fever, nausea, vomiting, altered stool pattern, blood with stool, tenderness, distension? Painful urination, blood in urine? Recent trauma, herniation? Stressors? Other risks? ...Read more
