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. ...Read more

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). ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Possible: But not the colonoscopy per se but rather manual compression of the abdomen is sometimes needed to guide the scope to the full extent of the colon especially with a tortuous colon or prior abdominal surgeries. But even with that you may be sore but should not have any visible bruising. ...Read more
