Sounds almost like what's happening to me. Started off with abdominal discomfort for a few weeks, then suddenly I started getting back pain. I've been to a couple doctors, and neither of them think it's anything serious. Thanks, docs...you don't have to live in this body! ;) Luckily I have a CT scan coming up...but I have to wait three weeks to get it. Could be anything from muscle strain, an ulcer, swollen spleen, kidney stone...there are lots of things it could be. You didn't state your age or many other details, so this is a generality based on my existing research.

Hi. Get n ultrasound abdomen done asap so that we rule out few possibilities. Depending on the findins we can work out further investigations or plan of action. It might be renal or ureteric stone..or just simple myalgia. Stronly advise you to get an ultrasound abdomen done asap.

I was watching a previous football match and got really excited when my team scored a goal. I tensed up loads and afterwards felt some pain in my upper left abdomen. As the night went on the intensity increased to the point where I can t even sleep. Going to the toilet doesn t help and it s getting worse. It s on the upper left abdomen with pain radiating down to my pelvis from that point. Help!!!!

Hello I have upper left abdominal pain ( stabbing pain with constant pain as well). It has been going on for a day and a half now. I went to the hospital this morning and had an elevated d dimer test result. They did not tell me what my number was just that it was a bit elevated. I had a ct scan and a chest x ray with nothing showing. They sent me home with pain meds and told me it was my ribs. I am still in alot of pain and not sure where to go from here. I am 25 years old with 2 children natural births.
