Ask for some tests for pancreatitis
amylase lipase blood test
that should be a start
have same type of pain and some bleeding when I have bowel movement.....have you been tested for colon problems?
Thanks for the information. I will definitely ask the doctor about the tests. Just to let you know, I am still having the pain but it is not as bad as before so I am hoping it is just gastritis.
Hi! I just read your message. I basically have abdominal pain in the upper left hand side and some pain in the rib cage. The pain is like I pulled a muscle. I don't have any other symptoms. I am sorry to hear you are experiencing the same type of pain. It really *****. I hope your doctor finds out what the problem is in your case. I wish you the best of luck.
For about a week I've been having lower left side pains, almost like a pulled muscle. My Dr. says it might be Pleurisy, but I have other symptoms like fever etc. I've had these pains before , but always before my menstration, and then they would go away, only lasting a day or so. Any women out there with this problem?
