    Hi anne king, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box?
    Could it be caused from a surgical piece of equipment having been forgotten -- an x-ray might eliminate this as a possible cause ?

I have a pain when I push on it just under my left rib cage what could it be also i have been constipated for a while I'm really worried

Here are just a few of the possible reasons you may be feeling pain under the left rib cage:
Gluing gas in the colon - There is a possibility that you have gas trapped in the colon. The amount of gas that has become stuck may be excessive. You can usually feel the pain resonating from the upper left side of the abdomen to the left side of the rib cage.
Irritation in the spleen - There is a possibility that your spleen has already been broken due to several reasons and this can cause some pain in the left rib cage. In order to know if the type of pain you are experiencing is also due to this, you may also want to see if you are experiencing other symptoms such as pain in your left shoulder limbs.
Broken Rib - This is probably one of the most common reasons why you are experiencing pain under the left rib cage. There is a possibility that you feel pain under the left rib cage, because it has broken the rib. Ask yourself if you have been in any accident lately or if you have hit yourself unexpectedly. This may just be one of the reasons you've broken your ribs.

I get abdominal pain...what causes that??

There are several causes possible, some of them more serious. The only thing to do here is to go see a doctor, and tell all. The doctor may feel your tummy, and possibly order tests.

Make sure to say whatever you have eaten, and any activities like strenuous exercise, at the time the pains began.

What are shin splints cure methods to get back to your running?

You might want to try some of these:

  1. Rest your body. It needs time to heal.

  2. Ice your shin to ease pain and swelling. Do it for 20-30 minutes every 3 to 4 hours for 2 to 3 days, or until the pain is gone.

  3. Take anti-inflammatory painkillers. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), like ibuprofen, naproxen, or aspirin, will help with pain and swelling. These drugs can have side effects, though, like a greater chance of bleeding and ulcers. They should be used only occasionally unless your doctor says otherwise.

  4. Use orthotics for your shoes. Shoe inserts -- which can be custom-made or bought off the shelf -- may help with arches that collapse or flatten when you stand up.

  5. Do range-of-motion exercises, if your doctor recommends them.

  6. Use a neoprene sleeve to support and warm your leg.

  7. Go to physical therapy to identify and treat issues in your legs or running mechanics that may be causing shin splints. A therapist can also help ease the pain and guide your return to sport..

How to treat a shin splints pain I?

Apply some cold compress on the affected part. Ice packs help in easing the pain and inflammation by decreasing blood flow on the area. Apply the compress for 15 to 20 minutes four or five times a day, for several days or until the pain and swelling has gone down. Be sure to protect your skin by putting a cloth between it and the ice compress.

Had a Whipple surgery 7 years ago, starting to have stomach aches, constant nausea, diarrhea, blotting, what should I be most concerned about

Carla: According to "Q. What are the long-term effects of the Whipple procedure?
A. Most patients will completely recover from their operation within two months. In some cases, it may take up to six months to recover from the surgery. Most patients will need to take a daily vitamin with iron. Some patients will have temporary trouble regulating their blood sugar levels. Your doctor will determine if you need long-term medication to control your blood sugars. Some patients (i.e., overweight patients and pre-existing diabetics) may require insulin after their surgery. "

However, as an RN, I would say the most common problems years later can be development of scars that cause abdominal pain. Many people have this cared for by a procedure known as lysis of adhesions.

I have a sharp pain lower left abdomen, not continuous, however when pain comes it is short and sharp. What is it?

On the lower left we can probably say it is not appendicitis, but that's about all. You should get to a doctor as there is a whole big range of possibilities, from not serious at all (like too much salami) right out to more scary things (don't worry at this stage).

The doctor will ask your previous troubles, maybe family history, all drugs you ever took, lifestyle (don't tell stories, be frank now) and then poke and prod your tummy.

Good luck

Tummy tuck

Nhs is ok. Recovery is 4 weeks with no heavy lifting. Well worth it if u use a well known company not sure about Nhs. But to get it on Nhs just say u suffer depression and it should work. I had my tummy tuck 2 years back from Dr.mclean's clinic, Toronto. You cannot imagine how good it feels when it is done and the pain is gone. You look like you work out all the time, I had a new belly button and finally a stomach that I did not have to tuck into my jeans.

Need to get relief from sciatica pain

Oral medications (tablets) include:
  • Over-the-counter pain relievers such as acetaminophen, aspirin, or NSAIDs (such as ibuprofen [Advil, Motrin], ketoprofen, or naproxen [Aleve])
  • Acetaminophen (Tylenol) andnonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugslike aspirin and ibuprofen. You can buy these medicines without a prescription. Some of them also come in stronger doses. For those, you'll need a prescription.
  • Muscle relaxants . Also called sedatives, these medicines can help when you get strong muscle spasms along with lower back pain. Side effects, such as drowsiness, are common.
  • Narcotic pain medicines. These are very strong medicines that you may use to ease sudden, severe back pain. They are usually taken for only 1 to 2 weeks. People with chronic low back pain may take them for longer periods. You can take these drugs without becoming addicted.
  • Antidepressants . Some of these medicines, such as amitriptyline and duloxetine, not only treat depression but also may help with chronic pain.
See your doctor/GP for a proper prescription if your pain is really severe. However, usually painkillers are a short term solution, but are easily obtainable.
