i am aged 26,i'm of asian descendant.Ok this is my problem: last year 06 i a symptom of discomfort under my left rib-cage.Few months on it was still there, i had a gastroscopy (i'm pretty positive it was fine) then later on had a colonoscopy, (test show "moderate hymphoid hyperplasia" in the terminal ileum but no inflammation. The colon is normal)so no luck there, but now i have a second pain 1-2 inches to the left of my belly button and 1-2 inches below my left rib cage.
it hurts and i can't sleep, although its not a sharp main that is strong enough to wake me up. I have weight loss but i'm not sure if thats due to me sleeping late and not excerising enough.i have dark stool but not as serious as a bloody stool. I have had non-stop constipation and haven't had a properly formed stool in ages. i.e it passes out as one properly formed stool shape.
I have the EXACT symptoms....I went for a CT scan and nothing came up...ive seen 3 different docotors and I was told that I have a hernia....an inch left to my navel and an inch or so below my left rib cage. everything is the same to a T. Because nothing came up on the cat scan they cant be sure that its a hernia but they are pretty sure thats what it is...the only way to know for sure is to go for surgery....please let me know if you hear anything else..and i will do the same..thanks
i am having aching pain in the chest each a.m. about 1:30am...since i have been diagnosed with gerd in the past,i suspect it is gastric. it usually eases up in about an hour after i take mylanta or the pink stuff...i also take a 40mg nexium every morning. i've noticed the last couple of mornings i have black stools. i have had this gerd attack eACH MORNING FOR ABT A WEEK. are the stools supposed to be black? i had a colonoscopy in 03 and all was well..no polyps...see me in 10 years.
my teenage son has had abdominal pain for two months off and on pretty bad and the docs say that he's fine after xray & blood tests. He has had very dark stools intermittently for two months. Could this be a sign of ulcers bleeding? Or would this show up on xray?
