Urologist: This is a case for a urologist. Medications like flomax (tamsulosin) are helpful in bladder neck problems. Urethral abnormalities, overactive bladder problems, prostate dysfunction all are possibilities here. I'm not sure what tests have been done, but a urologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you about diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

Recurrent, lower-right-side pain. A dull, tight feeling. Had several blood tst, a CT scan, and ultrasound with no explanation. I get hives sometimes. Could this be my liver? Would the test miss that?

Should I continue to worry about stomach pain/tightness if ultrasound is clear, urea breath test is negative, doc & gastro says nothing?

Should I continue to worry about stomach pain/tightness if ultrasound is clear, urea breath test is negative, doc & gastro says nothing?

Need reassurance: It's normal to be concerned about your health, and to worry why you feel bad. Whatever the cause, you're appropriately anxious. Further testing may alleviate your concern, particularly if/as "bad things" are ruled out and your test results repeatedly prove negative. Of course, another medical opinion may be helpful too. ...Read more

I'm having occasional tightness and burning right in the middle of my upper abdomen. Should I be concerned?

Maybe...: If you're indicating your epigastrium (just below the ribs in the midline), then you may have peptic disease (e.G ulcer, gerd, reflux) or contractions or delayed emptying of the gut in that location (stomach, mid-colon). Less likely (& appropriate to symptom duration, intensity, timing, risks) your gallbladder or pancreas may be sick. Best to get checked. ...Read more

Can sudafed cause bloating and tightness in abdomen?
