Chronic middle back pain on both sides, but worse this past week on left side; mid upper abdominal pain and left upper abdominal pain that comes and goes; chest tightness; difficulty sleeping this past week due to symptoms. Should I be seen today?

To be seen soon: I am concerned about your symptoms. You may have a gallbladder problem, lung problem, both of which could be serious. Your symptoms could be due to other causes. Please be seen in the next day. Happy healing.

What causes mid abdominal pain on the left side when lying down?

What causes mid abdominal pain on the left side when lying down?

Get some help...: Abdominal pain is never normal, and lots of things can cause positional mid-left abdominal pain--see earlier healthtap answers please. Your symptoms may be related to a non-serious condition, but when pain is persistent/ recurrent then evaluation is especially warranted.

Having intense upper & mid abdominal pain on both sides that goes through to back. US says, trace amount of intrapelvic fluid, what could that mean?

Having intense upper & mid abdominal pain on both sides that goes through to back. US says, trace amount of intrapelvic fluid, what could that mean?

REALLY cannot say: Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health situation. Trace amount of fluid is normal. And.... aortic aneurysm (very unlikely) pancreatitis appendix pelvic inflammatory disease many many other very nasty potentially rapidly fatal diseases cause abdominal pain.

I am experiencing upper abdominal pain (side: right), abdominal mass, bloating or abdominal fullness, swollen abdomen and side pain. I have a round mass on left low or mid side when coughing. I cant really bend my abdomen is in the way and painful?

Need Medical checkup: If you suspect any mass in your abdomen which is causing pain, you should have a medical check up. Go see your doctor immediately and have a medical examination. A CT scan of the abdomen is a good test to check for any suspected abdominal mass or lumps in the abdomen. If there is a lump, it will require further testing to find the cause.

Awoke with severe upper mid abdominal pain from front to back. History of gstones. Is this an attack and if so what can be done for temp relief?

Could be see doc NOW: Need to get seen, evaluated. Could be gallbladder attack, could lead to stones getting stuck en route, could lead to pancreatitis (inflammation of pancreas), could lead to infection, jaundice, etc. Get checked first, then worry about temporary relief.

Hello I am having some lower to mid-abdominal pain. Mostly discomfort. I was previously diagnosed with gastritis I was wondering if this is from that?

Hello I am having some lower to mid-abdominal pain. Mostly discomfort. I was previously diagnosed with gastritis I was wondering if this is from that?

Most likely: However, you will need to be on medication to suppress stomach acid and be reevaluated with blood testing, H. pylori testing and an abdominal US. I would suggest using Mylanta plus OTC Pepcid-20 mg AM/PM-do not ignore these symptoms.

How serious an issue is gallbladder sludge? I have vomiting episodes occasionally with mid-abdominal pain, but I'm not sure if gallbladder is cause.

Gallbladder sludge: Gallbladder sludge can be asymptomatic or can be a cause of cholecystitis and gallbladder symptoms, including pain and nausea. This can occur in the presence or the absence of gallstones themselves. If you continue to remain symptomatic, you should see your doctor or a gastroenterologist to sort out whether the gallbladder is your issue or not. Good luck.

Upper mid abdominal pain without any pattern. Occurs any time of day and after meals. BW, upper GI series negative. Symp: Pain, nausea, burping.?

Good news so far but: ...There are no perfect tests &few perfect doctors. Most practitioners want you to candidly share your concerns so as to best direct you appropriately. If for any reason you/he didn't hit it off ideally with the first GI doctor, or you want confirmation of doctor's opinion or a fresh look, please check with another GI specialist. Don't give up, particularly if you have ongoing distress.

Symptoms: pressure/heavy kind of pain, on the sternum above my breast gets worse when I lean forward/backward, light-headedness, mid-abdominal pain?

Symptoms: pressure/heavy kind of pain, on the sternum above my breast gets worse when I lean forward/backward, light-headedness, mid-abdominal pain?

Chest soreness: This could be a rib cage strain or some degree of inflammation of the junction of the rib and sternum (costochondritis) especially if there is tenderness and worsening with chest motion. Inflammation of the heart lining (pericarditis) caused by a viral infection is usually accompanied by fever. I recommend that you be examined by a physician especially in view of abdominal symptoms as well.

Infection: Sounds like a infection. The cramping may simply be related to your period. See your physician for evaluation for antibiotics and ways to help with the cramping.

Doctor today: This could be many things including pneumonia or a gallbladder attack. Either way, based on the description, you should be seen by a doctor today. Could be a primary care, urgent care, or emergency department, but today is in our best interest. Hope this helps!
