I've an enlarged spleen from mono. I bumped my stomach on the kitchen counter today. Is it possible I ruptured my spleen?
Maybe: The spleen, stomach, part of the pancreas, and part of the intestine are in the upper left abdomen. A patient who suspects that certain pains are related to stomach acid, reflux, or ulcers can try taking a full-sized dose of Maalox or Mylanta to see what happens. If the pains or sensations go away each time, that suggests the pains are due to acidity. Her doctor can check for an enlarged spleen. ...Read more

Not a mono symptom.: This is not a symptom of mono. What types of food are you eating? Do you have lactose intolerance? Have you experienced weight loss? Do you have right upper quadrant pain (gallbladder issue)? Any difficulty with fatty/fried foods? I would consider a good probiotic. See your physician for a complete work up of your gastrointestinal tract. You need an ultrasound of the gallbladder & blood work. ...Read more

I have mono and got drunk last night now my stomach hurts like a sharp non stop pain, should I see a doctor?
Pain: Nope. There would be nothing a physician would do for this unless there were other symptoms. Drinking too much is very hard on a healthy body. I cannot imagine why one would drink at all when they were ill with an illness with so many symptoms like mono. Mono is already causing fatigue, aches and pains and dehydration. Drinking alcohol when one is ill represents alcoholic behavior. ...Read more

Slender people: May be able to see their pulse in the abdomen when lying down, but usually this suggests that the heart is beating more dynamically, which would happen with fever or dehydration or an adrenaline surge if you are anxious. Push fluids even though you have sore throat. If unable, please let your doctor know about your symptoms, especially if your tight chest and focusing don't improve with fluids. ...Read more
I have constant upper stomach bloating that gets worse when eating. Blood work is normal but spleen is 2cm swollen, although had mono in spring.?
My daughter has had mono. I'm pretty sure that I have had it as well. I am just literally exhuasted. All I want to do is sleep. My concern is that for the past few days my lower abdomen has felt strange. I know that you can get an enlarged spleen with mon
You are correct regarding an enlarged spleen with mono. The spleen is located on the left side of the abdomen, closer to the middle; it is also closer to your back than your abdominal wall. If your spleen is enlarged and causing you pain, there is the possibility that this pain is radiating to the area you described. You must also consider that this may represent a different process, possibly a UTI (urinary tract infection). For this reason you should see your doctor for an evaluation and testing for mono as well as testing for a possible uti.
Lastly remember to drink plenty of fluids and in the meantime avoid any contact sports or strenuous exercise.
Take care. ...Read more

Diagnosed with an enlarged spleen while deployed to afghanistan. Labs were taken, I had blood work dealing with my liver off, cleared of mono and maleria. Since I have been statewide, 8 months now, I have had pains in my upper left quadrant of my stomach
Hello. I recommend that you write down all of your symptoms and present it to your physician. You can very respectfully state that you are really concerned by these symptoms you can ask if there are any other tests which would help to determine the cause of your pain. Since you are likely getting your care at a mtf, don't know if your doctor allows somewhat of a relaxed environment or if you need to stay locked on during your sessions. If s/he indicates that they have taken the evaluation as far as they can, could respectfully ask to be evaluated by an internist.
If this does not achieve what you are looking for, all departments at mtfs have patient contact representatives that you can work through. Take care. ...Read more
