I have pain in left side of stomach

10 days have passed after the completion of typhoid+malaria treatment and now I have pain in left side of stomach. Today I noticed that I had pain after I ate oily food (but I am not sure that it happens only after eating oily food) I don t have pain when I press that part of stomach. The pain subsided after 10 mins. It was a mild pain and it happens irregularly,like once in 1-2 days. I also have mild fever, a wave of chill and weakness irregularly. Can these all symptoms (including fever and mild chills) be due to enlarged spleen? Thank you for reading my query.

Hello, i am a 21 year old male who has a sharp stomach pains that started few months a go where it would come for 15 seconds and than it will go. Than it disappeared, but the pain was so bad that i would roll into a little ball hoping it will stop. When i went to see my doctor he said that it was because i had a cold . But now it has come back and I had it for a whole day, but the pain seems to be moving from the right side to my left side. As well as that my stomach seems to feel hard. Do you have any idea what the diagnoses are? thank you for your time.

My 12 year old daughter (5 foot 2 inches - 125 lbs - funtional heart murmur) woke up with a high fever October 23. Doctor said next day it was a virus. Laster in week sore throat doctor prescribed zithermax, and enlarged spleen. Bloodwork came back negative for mono. Spleen is still enlarged. yesterday morning she had an xray and ultrasound. We were told if problem we would get call yesterday afternoon. Would it be ok to give her milk thistle to reduce spleen. My daughter is very active and is restricted from sports. She really wants to get back in the pool and soccer field. How long does it take for spleen to shrink?

Hi Doctor, i have a pain in my right side of my abdomen, exactly on the place where liver is located. it started when i was in hospital treating for malaria, pneumonia and typhoid fever. the examination result for these diseases in different hospitals was different. but i took all the prescribed drugs. When I check i check my liver except there was enlargement of liver and spleen, they called Hepatosplenomegaly they told me that the size and function of the liver is fine. but still the pain after a year and half is continuing. sometimes it is low and other time very strong which i feel it very well when i asleep by that side. plus i have disc prostitution case which is not treated. So, my question is do you think that the problem is liver case or associated with the disc problem?

Hi, Ny daughter Paige is now 4, and has had a massive splenomegaly since birth that doctors, paediatricins cannot find a cause for. She had a chronic cough for 3 years, and mucous poos which a natural therapist has succesfullt treated as leaky bowel . She has recently had chronic bleeding nose and her cuts and sores are healing slowly and looking inflamed. her spleen is 21cm and she has occasional hepatomegaly. She has been tested for everything including parasitic involvement. All her siblings are healthy. serology shows that she has had both CMV and Epstein-barr, but the haemotologist says that it is definately not the cause of the biggest spleen he has seen . Ultrasounds show an engorged spleen with no fibroid tissue and no portal flow froblems. She has always had pancytopenia, but lately her white cells have been much lower than usual. She has no autoimmune disorders, thalassemia, TB, Kala azar, or any of the thousand things tested for. She needs help. Thankyou for your time
