Pain with sneeze may be due to inflammation associated with the respiratory illness -- pleuritis is inflammation between the lung and chest wall ...it can cause pain with deep breath / cough / sneeze
Where in left abdomen do you hurt ?
Near the ribs / or to the side( flank) or lower abdomen ??
Any nausea or diarrhea or fever ??
Pleuritic type pain may benefit from an anti-inflammatory such as Aleve 1 or 2 tablets twice a day with meals ...
Yes if under left ribs it could be spleen ...mono is common to cause upper respiratory illness and enlarged spleen
You may consider having your doc to check tomorrow ...
CBC / EBV titers (= test for mono) / doctor to examine you may be the best I think to your case ...
It sounds moderate in severity as best I might judge from this online discussion ....
Ok if epigastric then hold off on Aleve
Tylenol is fine
Try My pants to see if that helps epigastric pain...
If helps then I advise more of bland diet for next week at least
Possible benefit from acid lowering medication...( Zantac/ Pepcid/ Proposed / Prevacid / Nexium )
Epigastric discomfort is more suggestive of stomach lining irritation as most likely culprit ...gastritis is a likely underlying condition based on best estimate from your history ...
Follow up advised if pain worsens / increased nausea or vomiting develop / fails to improve within a few days
Let me know if you have further questions or concerns
I will be happy to get back with you
Well make up your mind!! Lol :)
If left lower costal margin then it could relate to spleen enlargment
With cold symptoms here in same time6 frame I would consider checking for mono ...at least then you know ...
