Left Upper Quadrant Pain Radiating To Back
Post Splenectomy (2 month)have left upper quadrant pain radiate to back, Doc ask for CT, CT show 2.5 cm nodule compatible with splenules, is pain common?
Yes, it's common: Post-splenectomy, especially if traumatic spleen injury was involved initially can result in "splenosis" where autotransplantation of splenic tissue from a damaged spleen can see elsewhere on the peritoneal surface and cause pain. I am unsure about the circumstances of your splenectomy, and your medical history related to your spleen would be helpful to know.
Diagnosed with biliary dyskinesia, but also have pain in left upper quadrant that radiates to my back. Should I be concerned of other issues?
Sharp stabbing pain in left upper quadrant towards my back. Below ribs in my back. Appears susuddenly and goes away just as quickly..
Depends: If it was a one-time, passing thing, there's not much to do. If it's persistent or recurrent, talk to your doctor. Pay attention to when and why it occurs, so you can discuss your symptoms accurately with your doctor. Good luck.
Stool: Likely a back up of stool to the splenic flexture. When the colon is stretched, there will be pain. If it is after a large bm, it may be diverticula disease.
I have left upper quadrant pain that lasts for some time along with mild pain that radiates to the left collarbone region. It comes and goes?
Don't you like: To find out and get treated. Best way is to see your family doctor, get investigated the cause of your trouble, like acidity, ulcer, gers etc, once cause is known treatment will be simple
I had severe left upper quadrant pain, happened suddenly, radiated to left shoulder, am 26 no past medical history. What is the cause for that pain.
LUQ pain: Your abdominal pain could be a number of reasons. Would need additional symptoms/descriptions to assist ruling out possible causes. Make sure you are not constipated, which can present with those symptoms. Take citrucel as a trial with adequate hydration. If symptoms persist, suggest abdominal ct and being evaluated by a local physician.
Infection?: As you don't give any numbers or tell how long you have had pain it is hard to answer the question. If the WBC count is really high you may have an acute infection. Without more information the probability of this can't be assessed. As you must have seen a physician to get the blood count ordered, ask him/her for follow-up.
What causes occasional left upper quadrant pain, around the bottom of the rib cage, worse after a bowel movement?
Luq: Left upper abdominal discomfort may be due to muscular strain, gas entrapment or pathology in the splenic flexure of the colon or disease of the spleen itself. Do you strain to have a bowel movement? Do you have any obvious bowel symptoms? If symptoms persist consult your physician or a gastroenterologist for evaluation.
Left upper quadrant pain with movement/bending, bloating, high liver enzymes, weight gain, what to do?
Many things: Cardiac causes, pulmonary causes, spleen problems, stomach issues, kidney problems, pancreas issues, colon problems, diaphragm issues, peritoneum issues, chest wall problems, shingles, and medical issues. Bottom line....Need more information gathered by your primary care doctor to narrow these vague symptoms.
LUQ Pain: Pain in the Left Upper Quadrant may be related to gastric (common-ulcers/GERD/gastritis), cardiac, pulmonary, intestinal, renal, splenic, pancreatic, vascular & referred. A careful history, physical exam & imaging are important in the differential diagnosis+review of symptoms. A patient who guards the area or has rebound tenderness may indicate surgical problems. See your MD for full exam.See 1 more doctor answer
I am a 45 yr old female haveing left upper quadrant dull pain on and off for about 2 hours now what could this be?
Hard to say!: There is no sure way to diagnose the source of abdominal pain because the nerves there are not too smart. They don't say "Hey, this is your liver & I'm hurting! (or kidney, gall bladder, or stomach) Nerves are smarter elsewhere (When you hit your finger, your little finger does tell you it is very upset and hurt! You have specific finger pain, not vague arm pain. If worsens, fever, vomiting: ER
Not usually serious: If "paun" is "pain" then the answer is a host of things, which can range from simple things such as a strained muscle or a rib fracture on the left lower chest wall, to more serious disorders like peptic ulcer disease or diverticulitis. I have recently even seen one such patient near your age with a splenic problem. If it persists see your doctor or surgeon.
Small hypoechoic area in Left upper quadrant. Wat it can be? Burning in LUQ on off is the main symptom
Nonspecific: This doesn't point to a single diagnosis. I have sen many patients with crampy left upper abdominal pain that comes and goes, and is associated with a "lump", which was likely a knotted muscle during a spasm. Sounds like a her is, but there are no hernias in this area if no previous incisions. Hope this helps!
See doctor!: You need to be evaluated by a doctor to give you useful information.
Many possibilities: There are several possibilities. Minor accident or major car accident? Possibilities range from mild muscle trauma pain, rib or rib fracture pain & less likely spleen, liver, or lung injury. Would need to see a doctor for a better evaluation.
See Physician: May need a ct of the abdomen as this is an area that is not readily associated with a common diagnosis. (i.e. Right lower = appendix).
