What type of ulcer causes lower right back pain and hard to breathe when taking a deep breath?

What type of ulcer causes lower right back pain and hard to breathe when taking a deep breath?

None I know of: I cannot think of any type of ulcer that would cause this type of pain. Right lower back pain exacerbated with breathing can be an issue with the junction of the rib and the spine at that lower level. Also in that region are the quadratus muscles, lateral border of the paraspinals which could also be part of the problem. Best to see your doctor for evaluation to try and sort this out. Best of luck ...Read more

6wks pregnant. Pain in right ovary is on and off. Was severe last night-hard to breathe, but just tender now. Inconsistent. Coupled with lower back pain.?

See your doctor: This could be nothing or could represent an ectopic pregnancy or even miscarriage if you had any bleeding with it. Hopefully it's nothing, but get checked out as soon as possible by your family doctor or OB. If it gets worse, you should seek emergency care in an ED as a ruptured ectopic pregnancy is often a surgical emergency. I don't mean to scare you, just want you to know it could be serious. ...Read more

Doctor can evaluate: "hurts to breath" could be pain due to movement of the ribs if the movement irritates the rib joints and cartilage, could be due to irritation or pressure on nerves coming from the spine to that area, or due to other things like lung problems (infections, etc...), etc..., so if a doctor should talk with the patient and do an exam to get an idea of what might be happening. ...Read more

Be seen: Although there are multie potential causes, you would be well suited to be seen to rule out a cardiac or ply unset source if it is associated with difficulty breathing as you are describing. A pinched nerve in the neck can cause very similar symptoms to what you are describing but is usually not associated with shortness of breath. A good medical checkup would be a good place to start. ...Read more

Feeling tired, chest pain sometimes, stomach pain on left and right side hard to breath in the morning, loss of appetite, sometimes back pain.

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor and discuss if you may be depressed. It may seem counter-intuitive, but exercising may help. Start with mild exercise, as tolerated, and gradually increase the time and intensity of exercise. ...Read more
