Black and blue mark on my husbands right side of his lower abdomen he doesn't recall getting a. Bruise and this never happens Has had lower back pain?

Black and blue mark on my husbands right side of his lower abdomen he doesn't recall getting a. Bruise and this never happens Has had lower back pain?

Consider eval: Hi, thanks for reaching out. Even with people the "bruise easily" we expect most bruising to occur in the arms/legs because in the even of trauma, we try to protect our core body from injury. Spontaneous bruising in the core/abdomen can potentially be worrisome. If it is fairly large and he has back pain, I would try to get examined by a doctor or at least speak with one soon in more detail.

2 days ago I noticed a small red rash on my right lower abdomen, today there is a large bruise under it. No pain, no trauma or injury. Any ideas?

Pic please?: It is very difficult to comment without having a look at the rash. Can you please upload a pic. A rash on your abdomen could be due to dermatitis, infection, an insect bite or something more significant such as a blood disorder or pancreatitis or other causes. Very difficult to comment without a proper examination

I began having a pain in the lower belly of my bicep this morning and then my arm started to swell. I have been icing it, now I have a huge bruise.

Biceps rupture is--: --common @ Ur age if it is stressed beyond it ability 2 handle. A jerk or by wear @ the shoulder. If it avulsed from the shldr it's the long head & U can do well with no surgery. If it avulsed from the radius, it is a surgical situation. Each will ball up, but prox U can still flex/supinat, if distl there's no function of the biceps. See an ortho & get the answer & Rx plan.

Following my car accident, I am constantly exhausted, with substantial bruising on right breast & lower belly. Is this normal or not?

Following my car accident, I am constantly exhausted, with substantial bruising on right breast & lower belly. Is this normal or not?

Not uncommon: You may notice I didn't use "normal" since i'd like to save that word for less distressing times. But accidents are traumatic. I hope you've been examined and internal injuries are either treated or not there. At the least, you may be suffering mild ptsd which will either fade or might move to to seek a bit of therapy to break it. Fatigue is often a consequence of ptsd or other anxiety. Heal well!

You: You need to have a medical evaluation immediately. I am concerned that you are having more bleeding from your cyst, a urinary problem, or something more serious. Please have an immediate medical evaluation. A high white blood cell count is not typical for a ruptured ovarian cyst, it is concerning for infection.

My appendix got removed Saturday and in the last the last 2 days have gotten a huge bruise from my belly button down to my pelvis and it hurts?

Exam needed: This extensive ecchymosis and associated postoperative pain is of concern and I feel that the operating surgeon will want to evaluate you for possible infection and/or excessive bleeding.

Go see ur Family Doc: Given your symptoms, it's best to go see your Family Doc for evaluation & appropriate treatment. Perhaps you have a urinary tract infection? While bladder infections are localized to pelvic region, kidney infections can cause back pain. Of note, infections don't typically cause drowsiness although fatigue would be expected. Bottom line, go see your Family Doc.
