hi, i'm 19 years old, female, and my entire life i have struggled with very severe and persistent stomach pains. the past 3 weeks have been incredibly hard for me. i'm currently enrolled in university and with my sickness it has been hard to be in class everyday. i have been in the hospital ER three times in the past week and no one can seem to figure out why i am in so much pain. they keep telling me that i have IBS, which would make sense i guess, but none of the medications they give me seem to work.
they ran tests on my gall bladder which came back fine and they have run many blood and urine tests and say that everything is normal.
the last time i was in the ER, however, they did a CT scan and found that i have swollen lymph nodes in my stomach. i was merely sent home after given some morphine. my family doctor called me a few days later to ask how my pain was in my stomach, but it is still severe. she said that she was concerned about the swollen lymph nodes that the CT scan found but she did not tell me why she was concerned or what it could mean. i have not heard back from anyone and i'm stuck up here in college, worried that there might be something really wrong with me.
what sort of things can cause swollen lymph nodes in the stomach??
i would really appreciate it if someone could help me out.
thanks, i'm desperate for help...
I would call her back and ask. What size is it and do you have any other symptoms with it? I would call until you get an answer. You probobly need t get it biopsied. Don't panic, though. I am not trying to scare you, but severe stomache pain and the node being swollen is something to keep on her about. Good luck Ask a doctor on here. This is my first night on here and I am still figuring things out.
hi. im 24 years old and i am also worried about the lumps in my belly. i can actually feel many lsmall lumps in my belly. I haven't seen any doctor yet. I am afraid if this could be cancer or what. This could also be swollen lymph nodes like you...i am afraid of what the doctor would find out about this....

My daughter is doing the exact same thing you are doing. We have made an appointment with the doctor for tomorrow. If you happen to find out why you have this problem please let me know. This has been a mystery for us. Thank you, Vickie
