You : You need to be evaluated by your doctor and have a complete evaluation. It could be caused by an intestinal issue, or it could be an ovarian cause as you still have your tubes in place. If your pain has continued, or if you have fever or vomiting, then go to the emergency room for a complete evaluation. ...Read more

Belly Pain (Definition)

Abdominal pain is pain that you feel anywhere between your chest and groin. This is often referred to as the stomach region or belly. Almost everyone experiences pain in the abdomen at one time or another. Most of the time, it is not caused by a serious medical problem. There are many organs in the abdomen. Pain in the abdomen can originate from any one of them, including: Organs related to digestion -- the end of the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas The aorta -- a large blood vessel that runs straight down the inside of the abdomen The appendix -- an organ in the lower right abdomen that no longer serves much function The kidneys -- two bean-shaped organs that lie deep within the abdominal cavity The spleen -- an organ involved in blood maintenance and infection control However, the pain may start from somewhere else -- like your chest or pelvic area. You may also have a generalized infection, such as the flu or strep throat, that affects many parts of your body. The intensity of the pain does not always reflect the seriousness of the condition causing the pain. Severe abdominal pain can be from mild conditions, such as gas or the cramping of viral gastroenteritis. On the other hand, relatively mild pain or no pain may be present with life-threatening conditions, such as cancer of the ...Read more

Bleeding a week before period and lower abdominal pain when pressure is applied. On the pill. Took 2 pregnancy tests and they were negative. Causes?

Breakthrough bleed: Breakthrough bleeding (bleeding at wrong time) is common on birth control. It happens in about 1/3 of users. Its no big deal and usually self corrects over time. If you are not satisfied or it continues to happen then consider using a different method. It is a common side effect and does not mean something is wrong or that the pill is not working. Your pain requires an exam to know the cause ...Read more

No: Not normal, there are a number of conditions that could cause these symptoms. I would be concerned about endometriosis, uterine fibroids, or, less likely, an ovarian condition. You should recieve an exam to determine if other tests could be of benefit. ...Read more

A CT scan shows a spot on the liver. What could be the results? I was having stomach and lower abdominal pain, low blood pressure, and was diagnosed with ibs, the CT scan showed I have a spot on my liver. What would cause that?

A CT scan shows a spot on the liver.  What could be the results? I was having stomach and lower abdominal pain, low blood pressure, and was diagnosed with ibs,  the CT scan showed I have a spot on my liver.  What would cause that?

Unrelated to IBS: The ct report should include a differential diagnosis. This is a "laundry list" of what the radiologist thinks the spot may be & what tests are necessary to get a definitive answer. "spots" can be benign (cyst, hemangioma) or malignant. A repeat ct in 6 months, an MRI of the liver, or even a biopsy may be suggested.Please clarify with the doctor that ordered the ct or ask for a copy of the report. ...Read more

Severe lower abdominal pain last night and pressure in lower back and pressure i n anal area what could it be i couldn't barely walk ?

Severe lower abdominal pain last night and pressure in lower back and pressure i n anal area what could it be i couldn't barely walk 
?

Sounds: Like it could be a fecal impaction. If you have been constipated, you could have a "plug" of stool in your rectum putting pressure on ligaments that attach to your lower back and sphincter. Try a fleet enema (sodium bisphosphate) or glycerine suppositories, but if not relieved with a bowel movement, need to see your doctor and have a physical and rectal exam and let him then decide on further work up if indicated. ...Read more
