Get medical checkup: If you feel any lump/mass or growth in your belly, you should get an examination done by a physician. Depending on what the doctor feels with his/her hands, further tests like Sonogram(ultrasound) or CT scan may be required to check this area more thoroughly.

Was lifting a heavy box onto another box vertically & to the right. Felt momentary left side abdominal pain for 0.5 sec. Any chance internal injury?

Was lifting a heavy box onto another box vertically & to the right. Felt momentary left side abdominal pain for 0.5 sec. Any chance internal injury?

Unlikely: Most likely an abdominal muscle strain as it occurred with lifting. If you can reproduce the pain by stretching that area or with flexing of those muscles, it is a likely a muscle strain. The one organ on the left side of your abdomen that is a concern for internal injury is your spleen, but that occurs with trauma to the spleen, not with just lifting. If nausea, fever, vomiting, see MD. ...Read more

Many possibilities: abdominal wall, colon, small bowel, ovary, etc. colon: constipation/distention. small bowel: distention, ? a kink, ovary: follicle which has not yet ruptured to shed egg. All these likely temporary, likely to resolve, but difficult to know even in person & impossible to judge from a long distance via text. Study abdominal anatomy on the internet, self-exam, learn, consider medical help. ...Read more

Pain in pregnancy: Her symptoms need to be evaluated ASAP either by your dr today or in ER. Heavy pain in pregnancy is always worrisome if it persists or is recurrent within a short period of time. Aches that are sporadic are normal. A fast heartbeat associate with palpitation is common but your doctor would need to evaluate this. Only w/ your dr would you be able to know if her symptoms are worrisome. ...Read more

Muscle stain: Sounds like a muscle stain. Try applying alternating cold and warm most compresses three times daily. Your choice of an over the counter antiinflammatory med like ibuprofen, aleve (naproxen) or Aspirin can help. Alternatively you can try a topical medication to apply directly to the painful area such as aspercreme or salonpas as directed. The symptoms should improve with time. ...Read more

Relax :-): Nobody's period is the same every time ; different this time doesn't necessarily mean something's wrong. Did you change your contraceptive? Could you be pregnant? When was your last good poop? Drink 2qts/water every day and see your doc if the pain doesn't go away. ...Read more
