What are the symptoms of celiac disease? Is it the same thing as a blocked celiac artery? Would ether one cause bloody stole or blood dripping from anus after stole passing ? I m having rectal bleeding, blood on toilet tissue, abdominal pain. I went to ER for a broken leg 3 weeks ago. I had to return the next day because my foot was turning purple. After a Ct scan I was told had a 90 percent blocked trunk artery. I ve had belly problems for a while and had a scope and a colonoscopy done at same time 4 months ago was good. Do you think the bleeding is connected with the artery blockage? The Ct scan from ER was sent to a specialist and they said it was no big deal that there looked to be a fold in the test. But did not reorder the test. I have had symptoms of stomach issues for quite some time now and even with seeing a gas-neurologist to try and get it worked out no answers. So I kinda give up until I broke my leg and had Ct scan and and now the bleeding again.

I am a 53 yo female worried about having a heart attack. I have at times had pain in my ribs on my right side that travels towards my spine. Usually, Advil or Bayer aspirin helps the discomfort. For the past week, this mid back pain seems to be coming through to the upper center abdomen. I had taken several 500 mg bayer aspirin over a couple day period so I don t know if I just irritated my stomach or if this is heart related. I have no shortess of breath, dizziness or sweating. I was taking Metroprolol (25 mg 2x daily) and also had Lisinoprol added (one 5mg daily) as I had a echocardiogram which showed a slight enlargement on the left side of my heart. My total cholesterol is high at 250, my HDL is good at 63. My doctor hasn t put me on medication - trying to get it down by diet (I am overweight). While I feel some discomfort in my chest, am I worrying needlessly? I know an echocardiogram doesn t show blocked arteries but, could it be assumed after watching the blood flow to/from the heart that there could be blockages? Should I rest easier knowing that I ve just had the echo and my dr didn t seem needlessly concerned?

i was in a car accident in 2003 and have seen a doctor for quite some time, that put me on the orthocthogonal (spelling incorrect) bed this seemed to help with the headaches. But after a week my neck would be out again. The cranium was off set from the axis and is pinching the left vertebral artery. What are some of the symptoms of a pinched artery?
