I know that I have a weak spot and a seroma in my abdomen, can they be causing my abdomen to hurt, swell and cause a cramping feeling in my abdomen?

Yes: A seroma is a collection of serum (liquid part of blood) in your tissue. It usually results from recent surgery. Any collection of static fluid in the body can become infected. If you have a seroma in your abdominal wall, you should be under the care of a surgeon. Buildup of fluid like this can be painful and can cause swelling. ...Read more

Ever since i got an intestinal virus, I have had frequent nausea and a minor pain that is hard to describe in my mid upper abdomen. What could it be?

Takes time: It can take a couple of weeks to recover from a stomach infection. You might need to take a probiotic for awhile and an acid reducer, like zantac, (ranitidine) Axid or Prilosec to help things heal all the way. Usually a couple of weeks of these and you should be good as new. ...Read more

SEE THE SURGEON: who operated on you! It sounds like you should have a complete Gastrointestinal evaluation. Neither the anemia or the discomfort are normal "sequelae" (linked events) to an appendectomy! Hope this helps! Dr Z ...Read more

I have cervical rips im getting pain in my coller bones could this course pain or could it b to do with the limted movment in my left shoulder?

Cervical rib: An extra, small rib on the lower cervical vertebra can cause shoulder pain because it may trap or cause pressure on the nerves and blood vessels that pass behind the clavicle and into the axilla to provide sensation and blood flow to your arm. The symptoms can occur anywhere from your finger tips to your neck. If this is persistent, the treatment is to remove the extra rib. ...Read more

I awoke this morning to a pain in the lower left region of my torso- my gut, I suppose I'd say. Do you have any idea of what could be causing it?

Difficult to say: Unfortunately without having a better sense of what the pain is like, what makes it better/worse, or any other associated symptoms(like nausea, diarrhea, urinary issues), this is a very difficult question to answer. There are a lot of reasons to have pain in that area, from colon to kidney, even muscles could be responsible. If it persists or worsens see your doctor. ...Read more

I have been coughfing a lot due to a common cold , now I feel a pain in my upper back of chest coul be that muscular or.My right side lungs ? Please.

Muscle contraction: The term "cold" usually refers to a rhinitis or inflammation of the nasal mucosa. Although i believe this is a viral infection, the cough is most likely a bronchitis. The pain in the back of the chest is most likely muscle contraction and unlikely pain from the lungs. If the symptoms do not clear up in 2 to 3 weeks, a chest physician or pulmonologist should be consulted. ...Read more

I have a severe sharp pain in the lower left side of my abdomen, just behind or maybe in my rib cage. Is there something i can do at home to fix this?

I have a severe sharp pain in the lower left side of my abdomen, just behind or maybe in my rib cage. Is there something i can do at home to fix this?

No short answer: I hope it is a muscular strain and can be helped by heatseveral times a day. In the rib cage would be more in the mid to upper abdomen. I do not like it being a severe sharp pain, if it is other than brief you should seek medical attention. It could be diverticulitis (an infected pocket in the intestine) and it may be ruptured. ...Read more

After i had my son in 2008, my upper abdominal area is hard and round. The lower area is soft . Do you think i may have an hernia?

Maybe: A long sausage appearing bulge in the middle between the belly button and breast bone seen only while doing a sit up is a thinning of the connector between the muscles, and not a hernia. A bulge that you can feel along this area or at the belly button is likely to be a hernia. See your doctor for an exam to find out. ...Read more
