ACCESSORY SPLEEN OR SPLENUNCULUS
Hi everyone

so ive been sick for more than a year now and will be undergoing a laproscopy in 2 months to check for endometriosis. my pain symptoms are nausea and left sided pain and a sore throat that never goes away.

recently i had an ultrasound and they found an accessory spleen, could this be the cause of my nausea and pain??????

Hi there!

It is not abnormal to have an accessory spleen and this is unlikely to be related to your symptoms.
         Nausea is a very non-specific symptom and could result from GI infection/ inflammation, micronutrient deficiencies, GI motility issues, o non-GI causes such as stress/ anxiety, hormonal/ endocrine imbalances, metabolic issues, micronutrient deficiencies, medication side effect etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by an internist initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
