Hello,

Pulsation in the left side of the abdomen may be a normal phenomenon in thin individuals. It is nothing but aortic pulsation.

A rare possibility like hemangioma or liver pulsation or transmitted pulsation seen in tumour lying on the aorta.

Please consult your physician he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Penchila Prasad Kandikattu , Internal Medicine Specialist

I have painful gas in my lower left side. My abdomen is not swollen. I am not sure what is causing this discomfort. I have diverticulitis and I am due for another colonoscopy very soon, I had an ovarian cyst when I was younger. I am 54 years old and I no longer menstruate. My siblings had pre cancerous polips removed years ago. I know colon cancer may not have symptoms until it is too late. I do not have blood in my stool nor am I constipated. the painful gas feels better after I move my bowel. I do not have diarrhea, a fever, nausea, nor am I vomiting. I am currently looking for a primary who will, I hope, tell me to change my diet and the pain will go away. I currently eat a healthy diet, however, my diverticulitis bothers me especially when I eat anything with seeds in it. I have become a hypochondriac researching symptoms of diseases that I think I may have. My Obama care insurance kicks in June 1, 2016. Do these symptoms sound like diverticulosis or pelvic inflammatory disease to you?

I am on numerous meds and have hypothyroidism. Should I do a blood test forf better levels?

I am a female with problems with my groin area. My gynecologist did a sonogram and said that she thought it was a muscle spasm and to go to my PCP who would probably put me on a muscle relaxer and physical therapy if necessary. My PCP ordered x-rays and stated that I have mild arthritis in the hip joint and to go see a orthopedic specialist. Neither one seems to think there is any correlation between what I am experiencing and the fact that my bowel movements have decreased in size and amount and I am very gassy. All my PCP did was write a prescription for generic miralax. I explained it did not seem to help and was told to keep taking it. I don t think it is healthy to keep doing this. What should be my next step? At this point I don t even know what type of doctor I should go see.....Please help.

Good Morning Doctor, when i talk, my lower lip

pulls itself to the left involuntarily?

I'm 39 years old, left my job due to overworked and overstresses. I went to a neurologist and he ran test, MRI of the head and jaw and found nothing. I went to my PCP, who stated i was just overworked and overstressed, nothing to worry about, suggested i take John's Wart and suggested Prozac?

Some even say it's due to overmasturbation, I might have damaged a nerve? Please advise..thanks
