How old are you?: In a menstruating female a small cyst that is diminishing in size is good and normal. Your doctor is observing and right thing to do, cause of your pain may be due infection in tube, endometriosis, adhesion s etc only your md can tell you.

How often should you have colonoscopy? I have a lot of lower abdominal pain.

Colonoscopy: An initial colonoscopy is typically warranted in a healthy 50 year old. However, a patient with a family history and/or symptoms as yourself will need a thorough workup which very well may include a colonoscopy. Please go see your endoscopist asap.

Best see GP: Sometimes situations like this one require a broader, more holistic perspective, such as what you would get from your pediatrician, internist or gp. Check out your concerns with your generalist.

Lower back pain, lower abdominal pain, go from sweating to freezing but no fever. Just had colonoscopy & had 2 biopsies done....Any ideas?

Call your doctor: While no fever, sweating and freezing may be indicative of having chills, which are often symptoms of an inflammatory process going on. Since you are also having abdominal pain post procedure, it is important to call and let your doctor know about your symptoms immediately.

I have lower abdominal pain and constant upper abdominal pain right at the top of my rib cage. Plus the bridge of my nose feels like its buzzing?

See your doctor: This is a problem that necessitates a face-to-face meeting with your doctor. This will allow him/her to examine you, ask specific questions. And possibly order tests to find out what's wrong and what to do to help you.

Hello, I'm 15 weeks pregnant and have had stomach ache (not lower abdominal pain) could this be my organs being pushed upwards due to my growing baby?

Hard to say: Pregnant women often experience a variety of discomforts. They also experience periodic digestive disturbances. They are also prone to bladder infections. When pregnant women experience pain it is important to have it evaluated in person with your doctor to determine if a clear cause can be identified.

Been having upper abdominal pain, had colonoscopy and endoscopy. Reviled a hiatai hernia. Is the hernia causing the upper ab pain?

Maybe: Hiatal hernia is very common, but they are not all the same. Large ones can certainly cause pain, along with difficulty swallowing or reflux/heartburn. Patients commonly attribute many nonspecific symptoms to a hiatal hernia, and more often than not the hiatal hernia is not the cause. See a general surgeon with experience in hiatal hernia repair for a consult if its that bad. Best of luck!

Have a check up: You need to have your doctor examine you first. He/she may order some tests to check if all is well or not. Weight loss is always worrisome, so you should visit your doctor soon.

I have upper abdominal pain below my ribs. I think it's the 2 places where the colon bends. All tests-US, CT, colonoscopy-were neg?

I have upper abdominal pain below my ribs. I think it's the 2 places where the colon bends. All tests-US, CT, colonoscopy-were neg?

Gas pockets: Can tend to accumulate in these places, called hepatic and splenic flexure. Make sure to keep very regular, and possibly it will not be as bothersome. Here's a trick: if the pain disappears or moves when you stand on your head, that's a pretty good sign that it's gas and not something serious.

I am experiencing fever (mild), upper abdominal pain, constipation, mucus in stool, nausea and vomiting, fatigue and tender abdomen. I don't have a gallbladder. Endoscope and colonoscopy done and no findings. What might it be.?

I am experiencing fever (mild), upper abdominal pain, constipation, mucus in stool, nausea and vomiting, fatigue and tender abdomen. I don't have a gallbladder. Endoscope and colonoscopy done and no findings. What might it be.?

Not sure.: From your description of one, it is not clear what is causing the problem. Assuming that your laboratory a valuation is all normal, I think my next step might be a CAT scan of the abdomen. If you have your results, that you could upload, I would be happy to look them over in a healthtap concierge consult. Good work.

I have sporatic abdominal pain (left lower) (severity: moderate). Been almost a year. Had colonoscopy, ultrasound, gyne check, no signs, still painful?

I have sporatic abdominal pain (left lower) (severity: moderate). Been almost a year. Had colonoscopy, ultrasound, gyne check, no signs, still painful?

Left lower pain: Left lower abdominal pain with a negative colonoscopy and gyn evaluation raises the suspicion of diverticular disease which is sometimes missed on colonoscopy. Has your gynecologist ruled out endometriosis as a cause? If so, consider a barium enema examination if your symptoms persist or if you have any associated bowel symptoms or episodes after eating harsh roughage (salads, nuts, raw veggies).

Many causes.: Many things can cause rlq pain. Inflammatory bowel disease (ibd), endometriosis, adhesions from prior surgery, ovarian cysts, and even muscle spasms in your psoas muscle. It's good that you've seen a gynecologist. Ct scans won't see many of these conditions. Ask your doctor if you should see a GI specialist, and make sure he/she knows you're still having pain!

Many possibilities: Ovary, hernia, uterus, bladder are all possible sources of your pain. Constipation is easily remedied at home with bowel regimen, increased oral hydration and laxatives. If no better, get in for appointment with your regular doc. Be well.

I c a specialist for chrones im experiencing abdominal pain dr done colonoscopy scan of rectum n lower colon can't find answers he said any suggestions?

Needs evaluation: There should be minimal pain after a colonoscopy. Depending on when the study was done would dictate degree of concern. Also if there is any rectal bleeding, nausea and vomiting and fever. While it is extremely uncommon, there is always the possibility of damage to the colon ranging from simple local irritation to perforation.

Unusual causes of lower right abdominal pain? Colonoscopy, CT scans, ultrasounds, blood and urine tests have all found no cause.

Unusual causes of lower right abdominal pain? Colonoscopy, CT scans, ultrasounds, blood and urine tests have all found no cause.

Don't give up!: Not all bad things that occur in the abdomen are associated with high fever (example: acute intestinal ischemia) nor does the pain have to be severe (example: cancer is often painless). Remember, the abdomen includes many organ systems (gi tract, liver/biliary/pancreas, renal/urologic, gynecologic, vascular, etc.)--any one of which can cause catastrophic illness without severe discomfort or fever.

Severe lower left abdominal pain. Have had hysterectomy, appendectomy, ct, colonoscopy. No answers. Pain is intermittent w/no pattern/trigger. Ideas?

IBD: You may have ibd if all those studies are negative. If so, then treatment with metamucil or its equivalent, should relieve your symptoms. Another cause could be pelvic adhesions. You should see a surgeon, a diagnostic laparoscopy may be in order depending on the severity of your symptoms.

I suffer with abdominal pain around the navel between the rib cage and lower abdomen. I had a colonoscopy which ended up with an IBS diagnosis. Help?

I suffer with abdominal pain around the navel between the rib cage and lower abdomen. I had a colonoscopy which ended up with an IBS diagnosis. Help?

Treatable: Although we can't cure ibs-irritable bowel syndrome- you and your dr have many options to try and control the symptoms. I recommend you keep a very careful diary of everything you eat and find the "triggers"that aggrivate your gut. We know stress makes it worse;can you get help here? If diarrhea is most problematic we can use antispasmodics;if constipation we can use stool softeners or even mild laxi.
