Mild flu symptoms 2 days. Fever 100.8. Occ cough fits., low mucus. Aching under full left ribcage; a spasm feel if I push under ribs near stomach. Energy ok. No medical ins. What could it be?

Sounds like a: Viral infection. You can just treat the symptoms if you don't get much worse. Mucinexdm will loosen and help with the cough. Dayquil and nyquil help too. Ibuprofen or aleve (naproxen) for fever or aches. A cool mist humidifier in the room will help too. Did you get a flu shot?

Stomach cramps: You will need a medical evaluation. Unclear from your description what may be happening. More questions : are you able to eat, do you feel nausea, anything make the cramps better / worse, when did this start, any change of bowel movements, have you experienced this previously. Most likely lab tests and some form of imaging will be ordered. Take care...

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

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.

Epigastric pain: Pain in that region with radiation to the back is seen with pancreatic pathology and with a penetrating peptic ulcer. Gall bladder pain is usually in the right upper abdomen with radiation around the right side into the back. My advice is to consult a gastroenterologist for evaluation and advice. Appropriate tests will be ordered.

What does it mean when your stomach is sore?

It depends: This all depends on the context of what was said, and by whom. Generally, most of us interchange the word "stomach" for "abdomen or belly". The stomach is contained within the abdomen. It is most likely that someone really means their abdomen (or belly) hurts.

My stomach at the left side keeps going hard and sore, why?

LUQ anatomy: Anatomically, the left upper quadrant (luq) of abdomen includes: spleen, pancreatic tail, stomach, descending duodenum, splenic flexure of the colon, associated vessels. Don't forget the diaphragm, heart, and lower chest are pretty close by. The abdominal musculature, ribs, and skin can all contribute as well to localizing luq symptoms as described.

Exam: This sounds like gastritis, an inflammation of your stomach lining; however, can be related to liver, gallbladder or pancreas. I suggest start on PPI therapy (Pepcid) immediately and make an appointment to be seen ASAP.

Hello. For a few days now I have been waking up to a sore stomach. What does it mean?

Could be...: Usually when having a sore or burning stomach in the morning it is related to acid reflux or heartburn. First of all try to decrease fat in your diet along with irritants like caffeine, sauces, spicy food, bread, refined sugars, all of which can cause these type of symptoms. You can also try antacid medication. However if symptoms are severe or not better with these measures see your doctor
