What can cause sharp stabbing pain in my lower left abdomen worse while standing or sitting could h pylori cause these horrible pains?

What can cause sharp stabbing pain in my lower left abdomen worse while standing or sitting could h pylori cause these horrible pains?

Left lower abd: H pylori infests the upper gi tract (stomach)and not the lower. Sharp, stabbing pains there may be gas buildup in the colon or simple colonic spasms. Pathology involving the left ovarian or pelvic organs are other possibilities. If frequent symptoms persist, see your physician for examination and appropriate tests and/ or referral to a gastroenterologist or gynecologist may be ordered.

Sharp stabbing pain under left breast by abdomen when I lift something?

Sharp stabbing pain under left breast by abdomen when I lift something?

Probably muscular: If it's only with lifting, it's probably muscular. Many muscles are attached to the lower part of your chest, so that's a common place to have pain. Sometimes, the cartilage along your ribs also becomes irritated and hurts there. As long as you aren't having shortness of breath, and the pain is only with lifting or motion, take some Tylenol (acetaminophen) and Advil, put a little heat on it, and don't worry.

I'm having a very sharp pain on the right side of my abdomen when I bend down cough or sneeze is an instant sharb stabbing pain?

Possible hernia: The most concerning/urgent possibility would be appendicitis, but that would not get better, but only get worse over a few days and you would have decreased appetite and fevers. An ovarian cyst is possible but usually hurt regardless of movement. The most likely possibility is a hernia or muscle strain in your lower abdominal muscles.

Lately when me and my fiancé have sex my lower left abdomen starts to hurt and he has a large penis. Sharp stabbing pain.?

Lately when me and my fiancé have sex my lower left abdomen starts to hurt and he has a large penis. Sharp stabbing pain.?

Could be a problem?: An ovary may be getting bumped with the intercourse, the uterus may be pushed or a tube may be pushed with intercourse especially if the male is of significant size. You may have a cyst on the ovary. One could postulate an infection as the cause. I would get checked out if this is a continuous problem. Perhaps changing positions may be better. Try and see. Perhaps, control depth of penetration.

Consider hernia: Can't diagnose simply from description, but often times hernias (where the bowel pokes through the normal muscle) can occur in the area you described, and can cause the same symptoms. Usually symptoms worsen during physical activity, like straining. Hernias aren't always dangerous, but if it is bothersome, worth getting checked out.

Constant ache left side about 2" from ribcage/upper stomach area. Sometimes slight stabbing pain. What could be wrong?

Chest pain: It seems more like a costochondritis, but I am a little confused as to the location. This occurs usually about the 4th-6th costochondral junction about 2 inches from the sternum. Try to press and it hurts. And the treatment initially are nsaids like advil (ibuprofen) or alive. Nevertheless, see your doctor to make sure.

The right side of my stomach hurts when I eat. What should I do? It is like a sharp stabbing pain. I usually end up deviled over crying

Pain: Pain in this area is very tricky since there are many organ systems in the epigastric area and right upper quadrant of the abdomen. - stomach - problems such as gastroesophageal reflux, gastritis, and stomach ulcers can cause pain in these areas - usually worse with eating and worse while laying down - pancreas - pancreatitis, pancreatic stones/blockages can cause epigastric pain, sometimes radiating to the back - liver/gallbladder - hepatitis, gall stones or gall bladder disease can cause pain in the right upper quadrant - intestinal - duodenal ulcers, infections and constipation can cause pain there because the colon loops up into that area - kidney - kidney stones or infections can cause pain in the right upper quadrant, though many people feel it in their backs. - gyne - ovarian pain from a cyst or even an infection from a sexually transmitted disease can cause pain in the right upper quadrant. And all those are just a few of the things that could be going on. So, your best option is to be seen by a doctor and examined to determine the cause of your pain. Reasons to go to the er are: - high fever - bloody stool - bright green or bloody vomit - severe or worsening pain - difficulty breathing.
