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

Belly Pain (Definition)

Abdominal pain is pain that you feel anywhere between your chest and groin. This is often referred to as the stomach region or belly. Almost everyone experiences pain in the abdomen at one time or another. Most of the time, it is not caused by a serious medical problem. There are many organs in the abdomen. Pain in the abdomen can originate from any one of them, including: Organs related to digestion -- the end of the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas The aorta -- a large blood vessel that runs straight down the inside of the abdomen The appendix -- an organ in the lower right abdomen that no longer serves much function The kidneys -- two bean-shaped organs that lie deep within the abdominal cavity The spleen -- an organ involved in blood maintenance and infection control However, the pain may start from somewhere else -- like your chest or pelvic area. You may also have a generalized infection, such as the flu or strep throat, that affects many parts of your body. The intensity of the pain does not always reflect the seriousness of the condition causing the pain. Severe abdominal pain can be from mild conditions, such as gas or the cramping of viral gastroenteritis. On the other hand, relatively mild pain or no pain may be present with life-threatening conditions, such as cancer of the ...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

Im 41 w/ 3 kids, My CT scan for abdominal pain came back as ruptured cysts on my ovaries and also thickening of endometrium..what should i expect next?

Probable resolution: Chances are that your abdominal pain will probably resolve as (and if) the "ruptured ovarian cyst" disappear. Since the thickness of the inner lining of your uterus changes throughout your menstrual cycle, a "thickening of your endometrium" at age 41 is not really meaningful or significant if your menses are normal. A pelvic sonogram in 3 to 4 months may offer you additional reassurance. ...Read more

Can ovarian cyst rupture (free fluid in uterus) cause upper & lower abdominal pain , pelvic pain , menstrual cramps , back pain , thigh pain ?

Yes: Ovarian cysts can definitely rupture. Typically the fluid from a ruptured cyst is going to flow down to the bottom of the pelvis. It's possible that there are some issues with inflammation, possibly endometriosis, in the uterus causing the free fluid. Definitely when a cyst ruptures it can cause pain throughout the abdomen. See your doctor if you are in pain. Good luck. ...Read more

These : These could be signs of preterm labor. If you have not done so by now contact your ob/gyn or assigned provider. He/she will ask you further questions to determine if you need to be seen right away or if it can wait until your next appointment. Please note if you are having increasing contractions, leakage of clear fluid (looks like urine) or severe pain or bleeding, please present to OB triage. Take care. ...Read more
