Chest/abdominal pains?

Chest/abdominal pains? Topic: Chest/abdominal pains?
June 16, 2019 / By Ben
Question: For the past week or so I've been getting chest (below shoulder on left side) and below my breast pains. I didn't think anything of it until it also started occurring on the opposite side. I wouldn't say that it's really a PAIN more so an ache if anything. I would go to the doctor, but I have no insurance so I figured I'd get some more info on what it could/would possibly be and if it's serious before I go. Help? Also .. around the stomach area sometimes it gets rock hard, but then it goes away and is normal again. Sometimes (like right now) it makes me feel half sick. Like right now my stomach area is aching, not sickly but sort of painful and the light dull ache upper left chest is going on, idk.

Your additiona details of 'around the stomach area sometimes it gets rock hard' gives a clue to the fact that you probably got 'Splenic Flexure Syndrome.' Splenic-flexure syndrome is a chronic disorder producing symptoms of pain that appears to be caused by trapped gas in the splenic flexure or bends of the colon. The pain that a suffering individual can experience is similar to the pain of a heart attack; can range from mild pain to unbearably severe and debilitating. Passage of gas or stool may somehow diminish the abdominal pain. **The pain often moves to the left chest and may be confused with heart problems.** Your 'hard rock' is, in fact, the transverse colon getting filled with gas and can not move forward due to a kink under the spleen(hence the name). Eventually when the gas moves forward you get relief. Treatment: It was observed that passage of gas or stool can help in relieving the characteristic pain of splenic-flexure syndrome. Some foods are known to aggravate the pain; the reason why diet modification is also recommended to minimize the incidence of pain episodes. Avoiding foods that can cause gas and foods that have high fat content is one way of modifying the diet. Some non-prescription medicines like Spasmo Proxyvon that can relieve symptoms of pain can also help.

The abdomen constitutes the middle part of our body. It lies below the neck and above the pelvic region. The abdomen is a very important part of our body, as it comprises of all the important organs except the brain, heart and lungs. It helps in supporting the trunk, holds the organs at their respective places and allows movement of the body. Abdominal muscles support the back and people who suffer from back pain, is due to their poor abdominal muscles. The abdomen comprises of four types of muscles; transversus abdominus, rectus abdominus, internal oblique muscles and external oblique muscles. Transversus abdominus makes up the deepest muscle layer of the abdomen. It helps in retaining the shape of the trunk and controls the internal pressure. http://www.abdominalpains.net/

It would be IBS comparable, however most likely it is indegestion, wherein case it is not anything to fear approximately; you'll be able to get over the counter (OTC) medicines so that it will support you in case you believe you want it. If you understand what meals rationale it, you will have to take the remedy earlier than you consume, that manner it'll have time to begin operating, providing you with quicker outcome.

he could have an obstruction. go back to the vet. ask them to do a barium series. barium is a white milky substance that will show up on xray. giving it orally allows the vet to monitor the gi tract for blockages by taking several xrays through the day until all the barium is in the colon.
