I felt a pop in my left abdomen. No pain. Should I be worried its my spleen? I have been burping a lot so could it just be gas?
OK, but it would help to know exactly where it felt as though the pop were located.
I have several tender spots on my abdomen now. They're even up my ribs and my back shoulder blade is hurting and back is tight.
Well, first off it would be extremely rare to rupture the spleen unless there were a significant blow to the abdomen. As for symptoms, left upper quadrant of the abdomen severe pain, slowly distending (enlarging abdomen), rise in pulse rate and faint, chilly feeling from loss of blood, and sweating. I assure you this isn't a ruptured spleen.
Is my anxiety most likely making my symptoms seem worse? Like the more I think about them?
One more question. If it is an inflammation of the ribs, would it hurt worse with pressure? Now that I am laying down it hurts a little more.
