Rib pain on left side feeling nausated but I haven thrown up and unexplained weight loss?

Doctor can evaluate: Such symptoms can be due to a variety of illnesses, from viral infections to stomach acidity, to pancreatic diseases, plus some others... One can start with a primary care doctor, who can get the details and do an exam. The doctor may order some blood, urine, and xray tests, as needed.

I have pain on left side along the ribs more but it's not rib pain. Could it be spleen irritation?

I have pain on left side along the ribs more but it's not rib pain. Could it be spleen irritation?

Probably not: Left sided pain is usually caused by large intestine distention with gas. It is called splenic flexure syndrome and usually improves after passing gas. If it is persistent you should see a physician as it could also be your heart or stomach.

Keep looking: If your weight loss was unintentional, you need additional testing. An EGD scope procedure and colonoscopy may both be needed if you've not had them. Rarely, gallbladder pain might be felt on the left.

Costo-chondritis: You may have costo-chondritis. The ribs come together at the end and join with a cartilage joint. Sometimes this joint is pulled apart or injured. It pops and is painful. Treat with anti- inflammatories and or cortisone injections. Rest is good too.

I Randomly get rib pain on my left side this happens maybe 4-5 times a day mostly when I'm sitting down?

Left rib pain: May be reflux from stomach. Or gas from colon (it is that high up), may have food intolerances, avoid alcohol caffeine, energy drinks, smoking, consider trial of ranitidine or prevecid- if not allergic. May be costochondirits (if you press does it hurt?) - rarely cardiac/pericarditis, or lymph nodes. F/u w/ doc urgent care xray would show gas, EKG suggest pericarditis/cardiac

I have had rib pain in my upper back for 3 days now it hurts to breathe and to lay flat on my back and on my left side. Should I be worried?

No: It is muscle spasm due to wrong posture, bedding or pillows. Try to correct that and wait for 1 week. In meantime do brisk walking for 1 hr. May take some warm shower and NSAIDs. don't do any bending or stretching until pain goes away.

Splenomegaly: If your spleen is enlarged there must be a reason for it. You should have a blood test called a CBC to check your blood cells, especially platelets. Also a cmp to check your liver function, since an enlarged spleen can sometimes be due to a liver problem. A baseline ultrasound of the abdomen should assess the organs, and often a ct scan is indicated to further examine the vessels to liver, spleen.

I, too, believe I have a pinched nerve that is causing a pinching sensation down my left arm. I also have left side rib pain esp. When coughing or tur?

I, too, believe I have a pinched nerve that is causing a pinching sensation down my left arm. I also have left side rib pain esp. When coughing or tur?

If you're asking...: ...whether the two are related, it's not likely. Also, a "pinched" nerve does not mean you will have "pinching" sensations in the affected limb. That's a misinterpretation of a colloquial term for a compression neuritis/neuropathy or radiculitis/radiculopathy.

Your symptoms are: Highly atypical for a unifying diagnosis. Therefore it is impossible to provide a diagnosis over the internet. You need to be examined and perhaps have blood work performed to sort this out. Go to a health care provider for an evaluation.

I just got over flu symptoms I had for week. I now have achy rib pain on top left side that hurts to touch. My friend has same pain same too now. Virus?

One possibility: It wouldn't be fair to try and diagnose you with such little information. However, considering your history above, consider (among other things) musculoskeletal pain (from "coughing attacks"), viral or bacterial pneumonia and pleuritis. Given your symptoms, it would probably be worth a visit to the doctor. I hope this helps.

Constant pain in left side of abdomen below rib. Pain started as stabbing on left side on belly button. Randomly feeling pain on lower right abdomen?

Constant pain in left side of abdomen below rib. Pain started as stabbing on left side on belly button. Randomly feeling pain on lower right abdomen?

Nonspecific: Migrating pain could represent excess gas moving through the intestines, or if associated with diarrhea, nausea and vomiting could represent an intestinal infection. Could also be muscle pain if you've been doing abdominal work outs. Best to see your primary care provider for a more complete evaluation if it's that bad. Hope this helps!

Go see your doctor: There are a lot of things that could cause these symptoms. Go see your doctor to examine you and figure out what could be causing yours. It could be things as simple as panic attacks, to things as significant as emergency heart related problems.
