Mono and cytomegaly tests are neg, cbc wnl WBC 6.0. platlets 260. yesterday he complained that the pain in his side was worse and had a temp 99.7. His hands are blotchy and ice cold. he describes the pain as a stabbing pain like there is a knife being twisted inside of him. 800mg of motrin did not help at all. 50mg tramadol did bring pain from 9/10 to 5/10. His spleen is visible and when I palpated his LUQ he is very tender under rib cage and i can feel his pulse

His BP is high and it may be the reason for his chest pain and dizziness and for the headache. And the causes of spleen enlargement and hypertension should be looked into. So consult your Doctor for the evaluation of the problems and for the proper treatment of his high BP.
