DR HASAN :

HI, Thanks for your question. My name is***** and I am here to help you today. I will be happy to help you with your follow-up questions also.

DR HASAN :

You there?

DR HASAN :

What questions you have?

DR HASAN :

Please enter the chat to proceed.

Customer:

i have been having back pain in my upper left side of my back for about a week. it seems to really be hurt in the mornings when i first wake up. do you think that this is muscular or could this be pancreas related?

Customer:

i read somewhere that back pain is a symptom of panceaes problems

DR HASAN :

Do you feel any pain on movement or on pressing that area?

Customer:

not really. when im sitting down and i move to the side, i can really feel it.

Customer:

it seems to get better as the day goes on.

Customer:

i can barely feel it at night

DR HASAN :

For sure this cannot be pancreas related because in pancreas the pain has to progressive and severe with no relief and associated vomiting and nausea.

Customer:

u think im just sleeping wrong, since its worse in the morning and better as the day goes on?

DR HASAN :

Yes this is most likely cause because muscular pains can behave so.

DR HASAN :

Diseases like you are thinking or in anything serious pain is progressive.

DR HASAN :

Advil for few days can help.

DR HASAN :

Change your sleeping position or mattress.

Customer:

do you think that i would have abdominal pain as well if it were my pancreas?

DR HASAN :

Yes of course you should have abdominal pain on front in case of pancreas and vomiting, fever etc.

DR HASAN :

I am sure this is not pancreas.

DR HASAN :

You can't imagine that how severe is pancreas pain usually.

Customer:

is pnacreatic cancer rare?

DR HASAN :

Yes it's rare and not common at your age.

Customer:

ok doc

DR HASAN :

Above all there is not even a single symptom in your case that is persistent with pancreas disease.

DR HASAN :

So please just relax.

Customer:

i also was wondering if it is normal to not be able to feel my lymph nodes in my neck?

Customer:

i cant really feel them

DR HASAN :

No it's usually not normal but if you are thin person then yes you can feel it.

Customer:

im not thin. i am 6 ft 220lbs.

DR HASAN :

ok

Customer:

i cant feel my lymph nodes

Customer:

in my neck

DR HASAN :

oh ok.

Customer:

is that normal

DR HASAN :

Yes one cannot feel lymph nodes normally.

DR HASAN :

Only very thin people can.

DR HASAN :

That too is quite rare.

Customer:

but if i ever do feel them, it could just be from a infection. right?

DR HASAN :

If they are painful to touch then yes.

Customer:

ok.

Customer:

lastly, i had blood work done about a month ago and my wbc was 12.4. is that real bad and should that concern me?

DR HASAN :

Definitely not because it is just above normal and mostly associated with infection. If everything else was ok then for sure nothing to be concerned.

Customer:

the only things that were abnormal according to the normal range were glucose at 107 and wbc at 12.4

Customer:

oh and my gran# ***** 10.2

DR HASAN :

This has no association with anything serious.

DR HASAN :

and what was normal range of gran?

Customer:

2.0 to 8.0

DR HASAN :

again it's just above normal and sometime just due to a lab error.

DR HASAN :

overall nothing significant.

Customer:

i have no reason to think this, but no way hiv?

Customer:

i am a paranoid person. im sure you already no that. haha

DR HASAN :

HAHA

DR HASAN :

No i respect your concerns.

DR HASAN :

HIV. no way.

DR HASAN :

don't even think of.

Customer:

leukemia?

DR HASAN :

No way.

DR HASAN :

as i said nothing is likely except a simple infection.

Customer:

so cbc would have pointed to either on off those if i had them?

DR HASAN :

yes

DR HASAN :

most of them.

Customer:

well im getting more blood work done for life insurance and i am kinda nervous about my glucose being 107. do you think that is bad?

DR HASAN :

it was a fasting one?

Customer:

yes

DR HASAN :

what was upper range?

Customer:

105

Customer:

105 was the top # of normal

DR HASAN :

so it was normal.

DR HASAN :

doesn't matter.

DR HASAN :

even 110 was ok.

DR HASAN :

one such reading has no significance.

Customer:

so it would have to be really high to be diagnosed as a diabetic?

Customer:

like 130's

DR HASAN :

yes more than 125

DR HASAN :

anything else you want to ask?

Customer:

no sir. i think thats gonna cover it. thanks alot doc. i appreciate everything you've done for me.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
