Is it common to have abdominal pain when I have a low back disc rupture?

Is it common to have abdominal pain when I have a low back disc rupture?

Read below: It depends on the level of the disc that is injured. It is not common to have abdominal pain with a herniated disc, however if the disc that is herniated is a upper lumbar disc it could possibly pinch a nerve and cause referred pain to the abdomen. I would first check for other causes for abdominal pain, side effect of meds, other gastrointestinal disorder. Discuss with your md. ...Read more

Is it unusual to have abdominal pain when you have a low back disc rupture?

Is it unusual to have abdominal pain when you have a low back disc rupture?

Not common but..: Possible, i guess. I would look for another cause of your abdo pain unless it clearly started with your back injury and is clearly tied to your back (radiates from the back to abdomen, hurts worse when the disc is compressed, etc) in theory a disc pushing on a nerve running from your abdomen to your spine could give you abdo pain. Other symptoms? Nausea? Cramping? Bowel changes? See an md. ...Read more

I have a splenic aneurysm that is 16x15x15mm I also have sciatic pain on left side that comes and goes is this a cause of concern for it rupturing?

Theoretic speak : two do not have direct correlation, but pain, especially if great enough, causes adrenaline and cortisol to rush out from adrenal gland. can lead to blood vessel spasms-contract and constrict. Which can, in theory, cause aneurysm to be more susceptible to these physiologic fluctuations. Aneurysms are areas where blood vessel wall is thinner because of the "bubble" effect. low on possibility though ...Read more

If I have pain in my ovarian region when I lift something heavy could it be a hernia?

Yes, however : As with any abdominal pain, if persistent, severe, or recurrent, it needs to be evaluated by a physician: in this case, internist, gynecologist, or fp. There are a number of possibilities, and it may not be easy to diagnose (good physical exam, possibly vaginal or rectal exam, blood tests, perhaps sonogram needed). The history makes me think first of hernia, but no guessing. Have it checked out. ...Read more

May be tight muscles: You could have a back problem with referred pain down your leg, but it is also very possible this is due to tight muscles in the hip and thigh. People who run or bike a lot...or even sit with knees flexed a lot, get tight hamstrings. Tight hamstrings can cause pulling in the hip and back area. Try a consistent program of stretching and strengthening the area so that muscle strength is balanced ...Read more

I have a pain in my hip which is really uncomfortable when sitting. The pain eased when standing. Is this likely to be just a strain?

Where is the pain: Hip pain may be the joint pain but it may also be the bursitis about the hip. You need to discuss this with your physician, consider X-rays if necessary. The tenderness may be due to muscles and soft tissue pain which would explain then pain with sitting and improvement when you get up. This is localized soft tissue pain like trochanteric bursitis. ...Read more
