Undiagnosed :: Pain In Ribs After Pneumonia

Mar 26, 2015

I had pneumonia in my left lung 3 weeks ago which was very painful. I now have completed antibiotics but still have pain in my lower rib area that is very sharp when I yawn, cough,  laugh or burp. This pain is not getting better. I had an ARNP tell me she does not hear any air movement in my lower lung. I'm curious What may be causing the pain. I never had it before the pneumonia and it doesn't seem to be going away.

Rheumatoid Arthritis :: Pain In Elbow And Ribs

I wonder whether anyone else has experienced this sharp pain simultaneously in their elbow and rib. Mine is on the right side and the pain is literally at exactly the same time and in my rib it seems to be directly adjacent from my elbow with my arm down by my side.  It started two nights ago. I have been in touch with ra nurses but had to just leave a message, yesterday, but nobody has come back to me yet.  It really is an odd pain, but really sharp and stops me in my tracks.  It will go on for several minutes, breaking off every few seconds, then will go off for a few hours and then start again. Also my upper abdomen seems really distended, I have no idea whether that is connected in any way.

Abdominal Pain :: Right Side Beneath Ribs

I was admitted to hospital with acute abdominal pain. I was there for ten days. I had a ct scan an ultrasound scan and an endoscopy they found nothing. I was sent home with codeine paracetamol oral morphine anti sickness tablets buscopan lansoprazole senna and movicol. I have been home 4 days and still feel awful. The pain is on my right side just beneath my ribs and becomes worse after eating and drinking. When i eat my whole stomach swells and becomes hard and the pain is worse i also feel nauseous. If i walk the pain comes on worse and it is painful to bend and sit straight up. I am constipated for a few days then very loose. Please can you tell me what to do next? The pain under my ribs is there all the time and can vary from mild severe to cut my stomach is constantly tender.

Kidney :: Lower Abdomen Pain Under Ribs

I went to the hospital a week ago and was diagnosed with a UTI. Since then I've continued to have sharp pain in the lower left area of my abdomen, under my ribcage (and just general side pain and some bloating)- and a dull pain in my back. Along with that, for the past couple of days I've felt nauseous off and on, weak, extremely tired, and today I felt like I was close to passing out when I was in a store. Could this still just be the UTI? Or possibly now moved on to a Kidney Infection, or... Thoughts?

Undiagnosed Abdominal Pain, Back Pain, Diarrhea, Fatigue, Loss Of Appetite

I'm 16 years old, and I have now been sick for over a month (I first got sick at the end of November). I have been experiencing stomach pain/discomfort that comes and goes. It is generally all through the middle of my abdomen, but I have also noticed that I sometimes get sharp, shooting pains on the left side. The pain is worse after I eat, and it doesn't matter what I eat, the pain is still there. I don't have much of an appetite, but I have been trying to eat because I know that I should. This is extremely difficult, though. I have lost almost 10 pounds in the past month because I haven't been eating much, and really don't feel like eating. I've also been having horrible diarrhea.. sometimes I will need to use the washroom three or four times a day. I have tried taking Imodium for the diarrhea, but I always end up extremely constipated.. and the diarrhea only returns (I might have one regular bowel movement, but after that the diarrhea just comes back). I'm exhausted as well. I just want to sleep all the time, and I find it hard just to keep my eyes open throughout the day. My lower back is also constantly aching.. I just do not feel well at all.

I have been to see my doctor 4 times because I just don't seem to be getting any better. He initially thought that I had a viral infection, but after I did not improve after two weeks, he decided to run some tests. I gave a urine sample and he said that I probably had a kidney infection (but he wasn't 100% sure because I had my period when I gave the sample). He put me on medication, and sent me for blood work. I also had to give a stool sample. All of my tests came back normal, but the medication didn't help at all. The next time I saw him, he said that I might have an ulcer, and put me on apo-omeprazole, which I have been taking for about two weeks now. I'm also on medication for a case of bronchitis.

I am incredibly frustrated because nothing seems to alleviate my symptoms. I have missed 15 days of school because I just feel terrible. My parents think that I might be making it all up, or that it's all in my head, and my doctor has suggested the same thing (he told me that there was "absolutely no reason" a person my age would be experiencing symptoms like this for so long. I am NOT making this up, and I know that it ISN'T all in my head. I just wish that someone would actually take me seriously and believe me when I say that something is wrong. I have an ultrasound scheduled for Tuesday, but I just don't know how to cope at school until then. I'm also scared that the ultrasound will come back normal, just like all the other tests I've had done. Has anyone experienced anything like this before? I'm desperate for answers and ways that I can cope.. I want to get back to school and my life.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome :: Intermittent Pain In Left And Right Side With Tenderness Under The Ribs

For about 6 weeks I've had stomach irritation, intermittent pain in left and right side with tenderness under the ribs, headaches, lower and upper abdomen pain, bloating, belching, an intermittent sharp pain like an electric shock at the top and just to the right of my abdomen, and most recently floating stools.

To be honest the pain isn't unbearable, just irritating, very uncomfortable and persistent which is getting me down. I wake every day with the same series of pains and bothersome bloating and burning. I've been on omeprazole for about four weeks which doesn't seem to have sorted it.

Undiagnosed Ankle Pain

For the past 6 month I've been suffering from ankle pain which began after a 300 meter sprint with worn shoes. The pain increases after a short walk of 50 – 100 meters. I can barely climb stairs and can't drive my manual gear car because I can't press the clutch. When I relax the pain slowly dissipates. If I walk more than 200 meters the pain can continue all night. On the outside the ankle seems in order without any redness or swelling. No movement limitation. I am practically handicapped and totally frustrated. I am 29 years old (male), with generally good health and can't believe this is happening to me. I have been to 3 different orthopedists, 2 of whom specialize in foot injuries who defined my pain as "mysterious". I have done X-ray, ultrasound, bone scan and MRI. Every examination I took yielded zero pathological findings. At first the doctors thought it’s an inflammation and I got a cortisone injection which didn’t help, and 2 X 10 days of anti-inflammatory medicine, which also didn't help. I have tried multiple ointments, vitamins and herbs. Tried massaging my foot with warm water, Jacuzzi and such. Nothing helps.  I'm desperate to find out what is causing the pain. Does anybody have any clue of what this might be, or perhaps suggest a new direction of investigation?

Undiagnosed Abdominal Pain

About a week ago, I was experiencing right upper quad pain. It hurt and burned and radiated to my back and in the middle of my shoulder, I was also feeling pain down toward my navel and was increasingly more uncomfortable. I went to the doctor and he laid me down and pressed on areas  asking me if I hurt,,,at one point when he pressed on the gallbladder areas, I expressed severe pain and then when he pressed on my right lower quad, I actually screamed and wanted to come off the table, tears springing to my eyes.   At that time I was not running a fever,  was eating  a bit and was not "presenting" like it was anything serious, so he sent me home with a prescription for Vicodin and said if the pain gets worse go to the ER.
Now a week later, I am in near constant pain...my upper right quad and my lower right quad  feel like I've been kicked or beat. I am nauseated, I have not gotten sick, I have been running a slight fever of 99.7 and have been having really loose stools with a little mucus in it.. Also, when I do have a BM my right side feel like it is being ripped in two. last night I was trying to eat some baked chicken and I couldn't do it, I also felt two pops in my lower right quad, that made me see stars for a few minute.

Undiagnosed :: Pain In My Little Finger Whenever I Press Down On Something

The pain is only in my left little finger, and there is no change in appearance. The pain occurs when i do things such as press down on a guitar string, or hold the control key. The pain is only in the tip of my little finger, and goes away immediately after i release, and it seems like it may be some sort of bone bruise, as the area of sensitivity which causes the pain is relatively small. What is it and how can i get rid of it?

Men - Undiagnosed Pelvic, Testicular And Urinating Pain

My problems began nearly 9 yrs ago. I had lower abdominal pain, pain on ejaculation, testicular pain, pain and burning when urinating and pain in the tip of my penis. The symptoms worsened over time. There is no respite and even certain types of underwear are difficult to wear causing aggravation. I have had varying opinions from Doctors and Consultants causing me more frustration. Suggested treatments have included drug prescriptions and even anti-depressants (which I have avoided). I have been treated at a local Pain Management Unit and undergone various tests, including injections and a scan. I was recently informed that although procedures had been exhausted, nothing more could be done. I was advised to make my own enquiries and this led me to this website. I am anxious to discuss with others who have experienced a similar plight in order to find anything which could ease the pains.

Undiagnosed / Unexplained Chest Pain For 10 Years

After struggling with docs for years over this I thought I would turn to the wider world some input. I am a 27 year old, healthy (enough) male who has been getting intermittent, irregular and infrequent chest pains on and off for around 10 years. 

During an 'attack' the pain can be quite severe and sharp - I guess a bit like being stabbed. The pain is localised to the left side of my sternum and feels fairly deep (i.e. it cannot be palpated). 

Attacks can last anywhere from a few seconds to a day or so, and tend to come in 'clusters' that can be present for up to a week. There can be months between each cluster of attacks (if you get my drift!).

Pain can sometimes be exacerbated when leaning forward, coughing, lying on my side or raising an arm (seems to always vary - and can sometimes not have any stimulators).

During a 'cluster' period and between attacks I can often feel a mild, underlying ache in my chest. This is easy enough to ignore however.

I have had ECGs and chest x rays that have all been fine, and am not affected at all during exercise - I can happily go out and run 10k with ease.

Doctors have in the past ruled out gastro reflux as there was no tenderness on palpation of my stomach area, although I have sometimes thought that attack can follow a big meal and be accompanied by burping (although this may be my mind tricking me). 

Musculoskeletal problems have been mentioned, but why would attacks come in clusters and seemingly out of the blue?

I am at a complete loss and doctors have been no help. My wife is scared that I will just drop dead from a heart attack - and I am struggling to find new ways of reassuring her.

Cervical Rib Syndrome :: Bilateral Cervical Ribs With Neckache And Shoulder Pain

I'm 42 and i have just found out that i have this condition. The 1st doctor i saw after having an x ray didn't bother to tell me that i had this condition, and it was the next doctor that did. I have been having symptoms for the last year or so , which are dizziness, some numbness in my little finger and ring finger, neck ache, which is muscular and nerve extending to my shoulder and arm i have also been getting jaw ache, and i've had tension headaches for years.

i'm not sure if all these symptoms are due to having 2 ribs. i'm waiting to have an mri in october.

However i am seeing a 'sacral-cranial' osteopath who is really helping, and i am also having homeopathy which is also helping.

I'm not sure what is going to happen and it's comforting to know that there are others out there that will know what I'm talking about and who i can talk to.

Hallucinations In ICU After Sepsis And Pneumonia

A couple of years ago, I went into hospital for a routine operation on my tongue.  After the procedure my tongue was very swollen, so they decided to put me back to sleep until the swelling went down.  Unfortunately I then contracted sepsis and pneumonia, was on life support for a week or so.  It took me a long time to recover physically and mentally from this experience.  I had the most horrendous hallucinations whilst in ICU.  I felt like I had been buried alive, embalmed, some of the nurses were from hell and some were from heaven and they were both trying to take me.  Even though this was a long time ago now, I still remember it like it was yesterday.   Has anyone else had similar experiences?

Undiagnosed Symptoms :: Chest Pain With Floating Sensation During Sleep

Night before last I woke up 9-10 times with the sensation you get when you drive over a large bump in the road too quickly, or when you pass over the high points of a roller coaster.  I'm wondering if my heart is skipping a beat, or have I stopped breathing and I'm waking up trying to catch my breath?  I've had some issues with chest pain lately, and they haven't found anything yet.  They still have to do the stress test and ultrasound.  Has anyone else experienced the "floating" sensation I am talking about?  It's strong enough that it wakes me up.
