Chest Pain Young Fem: Unlikely that this is a serious problem; but not guaranteed. Healthtap appears to note that you have already had a Chest X-ray and Stress Test. Is that correct? Are you an athlete? Past surgery on heart, lungs, or chest? Other symptoms during episodes (trouble breathing, lightheaded, pain in jaw/arms, sweating?). Recommend regular visit with your doctor as soon as possible. ...Read more

What is the connection between solar plexus and adrenaline?

What is the connection between solar plexus and adrenaline?

No direct connection: The "solar plexus" is a group of nerves located behind the stomach and in front of the aorta. These nerves go to various digestive organs including the pancreas and bowel, but not to the adrenal glands. The adrenal glands are innervated by nerves coming from the thoracic spine. There is therefore no direct connection between the two. ...Read more

My solar plexus nerve feels tight and "hard". Is there a problem here?

Might be a bone!: Where your rib cage meets in front, at the bottom, there's a bone called the xiphoid process that sticks down. In some cases it can move or twist and become painful--or stick out more. Sometimes women notice this after delivering a baby. If your hard spot is lower than this bone, there are other explanations, but you should see your doctor for an evaluation. ...Read more

My solar plexus painful, more when bending body. If this is cancer related pain, which organ of body do I need to be examed? Male, 63

Go see ur family doc: Pain is not usually the first symptom of most cancers. Regardless, if you don't recall an inciting injury or determine how to completely alleviate pain (short of numbing it w/pain relievers), you need to get evaluated. My recommendation is to see your family doc especially if major concern is cancer so that we can do appropriate examination ; testing to uncover cause ; give appropriate treatment. ...Read more

Hi. I have a constant dull ache just below the solar plexus which is sometimes brought on by bending at the waist. Thanks?

Could be internal: Most things brought on by motion turn out to be muscular, especially if you are for example doing lots of crunching or have to bend over more than most people for your job. A dull ache isn't usually all that serious. However, if there is any "throbbing" component to it, or if you otherwise don't feel well, for example, losing weight or appetite, vomiting, or having any bowel symptoms, see GP. ...Read more

I have a hard non painful lump about 2cm on my solar plexus which has doubled in size in the past 3 weeks could you please tell me some causes please?

See your PCP: For this one, you will need to see your pcp or a dermatologist. This could be one of many things, benign or malignant. However, it is likely to be a cyst if it is growing that fast and not painful. Have your pcp check it out. It is better to be safe on this. ...Read more

Over did it when excersising on Thursday and still have considerable pain in solar plexus area is this normal and what can I do to help?

Push fluids/rest: Yes it is fairly normal to have continued pain for up to a week if you overdid the exercise in the abdominal area. Just drink lots of water and back off on the exercise. It may take a week or two but you should be back to normal soon. Always increase exercise regimens slowly to avoid muscle strain and this type of pain. ...Read more

I can feel a hard painless lump in my solar plexus exactly below the middle of my chest. Any idea what it could be and should I be concerned? Thanks.

Xyphoid process?: I wonder if you are feeling the tip of your sternum (breastbone). It actually consists of three parts - and the lowest part (the xyphoid process) is a triangular shaped bone that feels quite firm and may be where you describe. Needless to say, ask your doctor if you are concerned. But why not google up "xyphoid process" and see if a picture matches your description. Good luck. Lgromkomd. ...Read more

I have a large brown splotch on the area beneath both my breasts. It lays vertically on my solar plexus. It's not tineas versicolor. It doesn't match?

How long: How long has this large brown splotch been present beneath your breasts? Some areas of hyperpigmentation can be congenital. Chronic skin irritation such as with fungal infections which are common if the area beneath your breasts stay moist can also cause the skin to be hyperpigmented. An exam is necessary to know for sure what is going on. Hope this helps. ...Read more
