Q: 

Sharp pain in appendix area

A: Hello, Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. The possibility of the pain being due to acute appendicitis can’t be ruled out. However, appendicitis pain is usually associated with fever and some nausea or vomiting. Another possibility which needs to be looked into is a pain of a stone in the kidney or the urinary tract which also has got a similar presentation. An ultrasound of the abdomen is the investigation of choice in picking up the correct diagnosis apart from the clinical examination. Any lower abdomen pain during pregnancy could be due to labor pains also which can be premature in onset. Hence, please do consult an obstetrician and a surgeon for the confirmation of the...


Q: 

A: Hi, Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. The prognosis for ALL differs between individuals depending on a variety of factors.It is approximately 50% in adults and cases in older patients are more likely to result from chromosomal abnormalities (e.g. the Philadelphia chromosome) that make treatment more difficult and prognoses poorer. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.

Q: 

A: Hello. If you use the computers for a long period of time, you might have to check your eyesight for any refractive errors. The screen also needs to be soothing to the eyes. Looking at the computer screen for a long period tenses the forehead muscles (those above the eye brows), and may lead to the headache. You may also need to make sure you drink adequate water/fluids. Mild dehydration is the commonest cause of headache. Coffee and tea have elements that can help relax the muscles. They may help temporarily, but their effectiveness may decrease over a period of time. You can consult a general physician regarding this, to rule out any physical causes. If you have had migraine headaches earlier, you are more prone for headaches due to the factors we discussed above. Removing the...

Q: 

Pains in stomach , had them on and off for several months , appendix? so scared!?

A: I had acute appendicitis when i was 18 which resulted in me having my appendix removed. The pain was horrendous, i woke up in the middle of the night and had to crawl on all fours into my parent's bedroom - i couldn't walk or stand upright at all. The pain actually starts off on your left side and moves around to the right. When the doctor applied pressure to my right side and asked if it hurt, it didn't, so i said no. But when he released the pressure OMG you had to peel me off the ceiling!! Apparently a classic sign of acute appendicitis is major pain when releasing pressure, rather than pain when applying pressur to the area. So if you had

Q: 

Can Portal Vein Thrombosis be causing chronic pain?

A: Hi, Portal hypertension per-se does not cause any major abdominal symptoms.The porto-systemic anastamoses that result as a result of portal hypertension can cause severe effects such as bleeding. Studies have shown that portal hypertension causes changes in the mucosa of the stomach, small intestine and colon(gastropathy, enteopathy and colopathy respectively).Of these, gastropathy has been thought to cause either a decrease or an increase of gastric emptying. Infections in parts of the gastrointestinal tract drained by the portal system can result in portal pyemia and infective suppurative thrombosis of the portal vein thrombosis(pylephlebitis). Portal vein thrombosis can be caused by many other pathologies besides pylephlebitis (perhaps excluded in your case). Some studies indicate that...


Q: 

What Is Epiploic Appendagitis?

A: Epiploic appendagitis (EA) is a term that describes the swelling or inflammation of the epiploic appendices. The term "epiploic appendagitis" came into existence in 1956. Knowledge of the condition, however, stretches to about a century before then, when German physician Rudolf Ludwig Karl Virchow studied the results of defective epiploic appendices.. The epiploic appendices, also known as appendices epiploicae, epiploic appendages or omental appendices, are fat-filled pouches of the peritoneum, which line the body`s abdomen. They are located externally along the colon, particularly in its transverse and sigmoid sections. Their name is derived from the Greek word "epipleein." They are so named because of the part of the peritoneum where they can be found, called the greater omentum, which...

Q: 

A: Hi, Welcome to the forum and I am really glad to help you out. From the description of the symptoms, it seems that you maybe suffering from inflammation/infection of one of the organs of abdomen. If the pain is in the upper right abdomen, it could possibly be an acute inflammation of the gall bladder (acute cholecystitis). If the pain is in the right lower abdomen, it could be acute appendicitis. If the pain is more or less generalized, it could be acute colitis.
