Pressure, bloated, hard feeling on lower left abdomen, tender to touch. Felt when I cough & lean forward. Middle chest pain when cracking back. Cause?

Left lower abdomen: You could have an incarcerated hernia. Hopefully, it is not strangulating from your description. Better have it checked ASAP. You can check about your chest pain then. Doubt it is an item of real severity. Of consideration, have you been coughing a lot lately? H/o of asthma? Brochitis? It can be related to your develop of your hernia.

Cough (Definition)

The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system. Cough benefits the host by reducing load and benefits the pathogen which may then spread via aerosol. ...Read more

Get a medical check: Pain in abdomen can be caused by one of many causes some of them can be serious. So if the pain is persisting, you should get a medical examination done from your PCP. If you have cough or fever, get your lungs checked also. A plain chest X-ray can show a pneumonia which can causes upper abdominal (referred) pain

Can Strep cause Lower Abdominal Bloating, Tender Sides, Constipation, Random Cough and loss of appetite? I was tested Positive for Strep.

Can Strep cause Lower Abdominal Bloating, Tender Sides, Constipation, Random Cough and loss of appetite? I was tested Positive for Strep.

Not commonly: Be aware, usually one of the hallmarks of strep throat is the lack of cough. Also, this type of infection doesn't tend to have a lot of abdominal like symptoms. If you are taking antibiotics, then it's possible your GI symptoms are related to this. Though, everyone's body is different and with an inflammatory infection like Strep you may be atypical and have GI symptoms like you mention.

See doctor: Abnormal. Could just be stool in right colon, but thee are appendix, colon, kidney in that general area and there are a number of potential issues. May need imaging testing to be certain what the lumpiness is.

I have a cold and have been coughing a lot, sneezing, blowing my nose and my upper abdomen has been sore, tender to the touch how long can this last?

I have a cold and have been coughing a lot, sneezing, blowing my nose and my upper abdomen has been sore, tender to the touch how long can this last?

Up to a week: Go see your doctor if going on for more than a week. Sooner if symptoms worsen. Most colds resolve in a few days to a week. I'm assuming the abd pain is from coughing, but have that checked out if it worsens or doesn't get immediately worse with cough for a second (as the abd muscles contract with cough or sneeze).

On top of my other health problems, hard to sleep, sore throat, hurts to swallow. Abdomen very tender after surgery, coughing=bad! Dr. Out until Tues.

Pain after Surgery: You don't say what surgery you had or when, and you didn't mention what your other medical problems are. It sounds to me like you should be seen by a doctor. Your surgeon must have another surgeon watching over his patients while he is gone. The things you say may or may not be serious. To be safe, I think you should call the surgeon or go to the emergency room if that is your only choice.

Is it unusual to have a bruised abdomen after a colonoscopy?

Is it unusual to have a bruised abdomen after a colonoscopy?

Yes: Occasionally manual presure on the abdomen is needed to overcome coiling of the scope. This may cause some soreness afterward. Bruising may occur if you are on a blood thinner. However it is pretty unusual to see bruising after a colonoscopy.

I have bruises on my lower abdominal, but there no pain.

Superficial bruising: It sounds like superficial bruising under the skin, if that's the case you should see black and blue yellowing in a few days. The cause would be small broken blood vessels

Right abd pain: When your doctor examined your abdomen, did he find any abnormality? Have you had a pelvic exam? You may need a consultation with another doctor if you are not getting the help you need.

Is it common to develop a bruise on your abdomen following a tlh with ovary removal?

Is it common to develop a bruise on your abdomen following a tlh with ovary removal?

Not Uncommon: You could have a bruise from the injection of Heparin (to prevent blood clots) or from insertion or manipulation of the trocars used during the surgery. Alternatively, it could represent a little bit of oozing at the skin closure from the trocar sites. Most of the time this will go away in a week or so by itself. If it persists or continues to grow, see your doctor.
