It lies below the diaphragm in the abdominal-pelvic region of the abdomen. It produces bile, an alkaline compound which aids in digestion via the emulsification of ...Read more

Why I hear sounds coming out of my abdomen?

Why I hear sounds coming out of my abdomen?

Abdominal sounds: Your stomach may growl when you're hungry. Also your intestines make sounds as food is moving through. They are hollow, and these sounds can echo through your abdomen like the sounds you hear from water pipes. Most of these are normal signs that your GI system is working. Lack of sounds heard at least by stethoscope is more worrisome. Talk with your doctor if concerned about this. ...Read more

Stomach: The structure you're pressing is likely your stomach, maybe your colon. It sounds like it's filled with gas. This is often due to swallowing air (stomach) and is often a sign of irritation. The sound is call "borborygami" and is an intestinal sound. Something's going on! Could be infection, parasite, ulcer, colitis, gastritis and many others. You need some testing. ...Read more

Fluid in ear: Those symptoms suggest you have fluid in the ear or sinuses or both. It's a common complication of a cold. If you're otherwise healthy and not having high fevers, you can try over-the-counter decongestants for a few days to see if it clears. If not, it's sometimes helped with antibiotics. I'd seek help right away, though, if you get a fever over 100, or you have loss of hearing. ...Read more

I'm having upper abdomen discomfort, spasm and tapping from inside my gut. What can this be?

May be stomach issue: Upper abdominal discomfort can come from many sources including the gallbladder, stomach, pancreas and liver. Tapping from inside is an unusual complaint, but any movement in the upper abdomen is likely related to the stomach or duodenum. So, regarding the stomach, reflux and ulcers can both cause pain and spasm and may slow digestion. Gallbladder disease and pancreatitis can have similar symptoms. ...Read more

Hard ball in the center of abdomen pain and moving around. What does this sound like?

Maybe a hernia.: Your description is not clear. Skin lesions are very superficial, there are fat tumors that could grow under the skin. Hernias come a little deeper through the muscle layer. And inside the abdominal cavity there are multiple organs many of which could have abnormalities that hurt or feel like a ball. Suggest a visit to your pcp. Hope is helps. ...Read more

When I tap on the left side if my upper abdomen, it sounds very hollow, as well as being painful.

Check it out: The most common cause of a hollow sound if you tap up there on the left would probably be air in the stomach, which is natural. But it's not normal that would hurt. Go see a doctor and get it checked out. ...Read more

Will ultra sound/sonogram work for evaluation of post hernia repair (on jan 2014), hard ball like seroma in abdomen as alternate to CT scan?

No need: There is no need to perform either test, as it sounds like it is obviously present based on physical examination. If it persists past 6-12 months and/or causes a problem, it may need to get drained. This is typically a procedure done by a radiologist using either ultrasound or ct scan, which are used to guide the needle. Can also be done by the surgeon in the office without those tests. ...Read more

Got hit by my liver/rib area by accident a few hours ago and it hurts a little, im experiencing slight pain by navel\center abdomen, sound serious?

Hope this helps!

Bilirubin found to be high. Had a liver and organ ultra sound. Normal. ...... Is it my organs? Had C-section 3 months ago and bad belly pain.

See below: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, you have provided very little information. What is the bilrubin level, direct and indirect, Hb level, medications you are on. It would be prudent to see your doctor for an in-person evaluation. Do not take acetaminophen. ...Read more

Why do I hear a whooshing sound when I change position (such as lying on my stomach, or standing after sitting or lying)?

Why do I hear a whooshing sound when I change position (such as lying on my stomach, or standing after sitting or lying)?

Succussion splash?: Consider gastroparesis=a slow-emptying stomach that is most symptomatic after the stomach fills from meals. Maybe its functional due to brainstem reflexes induced by eating--often exaggerated in irritable bowel syndrome resulting in altered perception of gut distension, "growling", &modified transit of food. Sometimes, gastric outlet delay may reflect inflammation, scarring, biliary disease, more. ...Read more
