What causes severe flatulence and sharp abdominal pain while treating acute tonsillitis?

Posted on Wed, 17 Jun 2015 in Medicines and Side Effects
Question: I'm experiencing 2 types of symptoms. I have a known problem of recurrent acute tonsillitis and tonsillectomy is advised by my ENT doctor.
1. I feel pain in left upper chest frequently. Less frequently in my lower back, sometimes left and sometimes right and legs. For this my doctor has adviced the following tests.
a. Vitamin B12
b. Vitamin D
c. Serum Creatinine
d. USG Abdomen & Pelvis
Should I go ahead with these tests? My doctor is pretty sure that it has nothing to do with my heart and has not ordered for E.C.G. I feel that this is a risk. Please advise if we are on the right track.
2. I'm experiencing frequent farting, passing winds(sometimes a lot of wind) and sudden sharp pain in abdomen and need to go to the washroom. I have not consulted the doctor yet.
My lifestyle is sedentary and I'm taking slow steps towards changing it. I was a smoker till recently. I quite smoking 2 months ago. I do not go to the gym yet. I walk for 45 mins after dinner. My weight is increasing, its 62 now and height 161 cms.
Are the two of my symptoms related? Should I go for cancer checkup or cardio checkup? or any other.

Brief Answer:
Unlikely to be Cardiac.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome To HCM. I am Dr Anshul Varshney. I understand your concern. XXXXXXX your symptoms are not at all suggestive of any Cardiac issue or any cancer.
Your chest pain and back pain are probably muscular.
Vitamin D deficiency is a high possibility.
In such scenario I would advice you to get the above mentioned investigations only as suggested by your doctor.
If any issues are found in these investigations indicating a disease then we will get the further workup done accordingly.
I would highly recommend you to start exercises and meditation and to keep calm. A lot many times these symptoms get aggravated by anxiety, so you need to keep that under control too.
So I would advice you to get these investigations done and write back to me.
I hope it helps.
If you have any further query, please ask me.
Stay Healthy.
