Stomach pain, hard stomach. Diagnosis?

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.

Dear friend, welcome to HCM.
does the pain move from the mid back (flanks) to the groin?
do you have sweating/ nausea/ vomitting?
do you have fever?
if it is colocky ( twisting pain, comes and goes ), it is likely a colic and you will need evaluation , lab, USG etc. to look for stone disease.
also there are many differentials in the abdominal pain. pl. see your Doc in person and get checked.
I hope to have helped you. pl. keep me posted on the progress..
good luck.

I had the stomach flu about a month ago (fever, chills, vomiting and diarrhea) and a UTI. I have had mild stomach pain since. Now I have liquid diarrhea again that has a chemical smell and is liquid yellow. I woke up with stomach pain around my navel on the right side radiating around into my back and I feel like my groin lymph nodes are swollen along with feeling weak and have a little nausea. My stomach is bloated and rumbling. So bloated and swollen feeling. Lower back pain too. I got an antibiotic shot last month. Should I see a doctor again? What could the diagnosis be? Thanks

Had swollen glands / tonsilitus ever since I was a child on a regular basis, also had glandular fever when I was 19, I am now 36. Had a scan on my throat last October which showed quite a few swollen lymph nodes and am impression, whatever that means? My throat is still sore some days and there is one swollne lymph node that I can still feel. I have since been referred to an ENT specialist who wants to test the parathyroid gland for hyperparathyrodism. I am worried out of my mind as I think I have a swollen nodule, I have got an appointment for a parathroid scan less than 2 weeks after my appointment with the specialist, although she said she didn t think it was serious and the swollen lymph node was soft. I have read a lot online about cancerous lymph nodes and paraphyroid cancer. I have always been thirsty all my life, I drink a ridiculous amount of water and recently have to urinate more frequently and for a longer period of time. I have had stomach problems most of my life too, nearly ten years ago I had food poisioning and I ended up losing 6 pints of blood and having a blood tranfusion. If I had a form of cancer would the doctors tell me / let on?

Hi, I am a 35 yr old male and recently during a full physical, my doctor found that I have hypothyroid and has prescribed 25mcg of synthyroid. After having it for two weeks I have started getting frequent headaches, bad stomach, chest discomfort. Hence I stopped the medicine. Now the symptoms are persistant and my neck lymph nodes have started hurting as well. Do I need to seek emergency help? Should I go for a second opinion before I go on a long term treatment of synthyroid?
