Was lifting a heavy box onto another box vertically & to the right. Felt momentary left side abdominal pain for 0.5 sec. Any chance internal injury?

Unlikely: Most likely an abdominal muscle strain as it occurred with lifting. If you can reproduce the pain by stretching that area or with flexing of those muscles, it is a likely a muscle strain. The one organ on the left side of your abdomen that is a concern for internal injury is your spleen, but that occurs with trauma to the spleen, not with just lifting. If nausea, fever, vomiting, see MD. ...Read more

My wife is 25 week pregnant and she is having heavy pain in left side lower abdomen and sometimes high heartbeat rate. Is everything normal?

Pain in pregnancy: Her symptoms need to be evaluated ASAP either by your dr today or in ER. Heavy pain in pregnancy is always worrisome if it persists or is recurrent within a short period of time. Aches that are sporadic are normal. A fast heartbeat associate with palpitation is common but your doctor would need to evaluate this. Only w/ your dr would you be able to know if her symptoms are worrisome. ...Read more

Sneezed 3 times in row, heavy burning pain left side of abdominal, had full abdominal mesh repair surgery 7 weeks ago. (Ventral -sternum to pubic)?

Could be worriesome: Are you having any nausea or vomiting? Any areas of the abdomen bulging out again? It could be that you just "tweaked" scar tissue from the sneezing and that no damage was done. It is also possible that the adhesion between mesh and tissue came loose. I would monitor yourself - if pain persists, if there is nausea / vomiting or fever, see your surgeon. ...Read more

Burning sensation which started in left abdomen maybe ovaries after a very heavy period it has moved around my body to right side abdomen both breasts and front of calves what could be causing this I also have a lot of relatively large fibroids?

Burning sensation which started in left abdomen maybe ovaries after a very heavy period it has moved around my body to right side abdomen both breasts and front of calves what could be causing this I also have a lot of relatively large fibroids?

Could be fibroids: Fibroids are the most common cause of heavy periods. The pain you describe could also be due to fibroids. When large they can press on pelvic nerves to cause pain in the pelvis, hips, buttocks, thighs, and down the legs. Talk to your doctor. While many places would obtain a pelvic ultrasound, pelvic MRI would actually be better. It delineates the fibroids to see if they correlate with your pain. ...Read more

Evening, I have severe loss of feeling around my back and through my stomach all on my left side. I am a fit 42 year old, not over weight.

There are a couple: Of points in your question that make it concerning to me. One is that the sensation, or lack of sensation, you describe seems to be very localized and discrete/precise suggesting to me that a specific nerve or set of nerves may be compromised. Also you use the word severe which people usually reserve for something quite significant. This needs PROMPT (now) evaluation to exclude nerve compression. ...Read more
