Resolved Question:

Should I see a Neurologist or Gastroenterologists?I have a severe constant pain whenever I'm sitting down, it's on the upper
left side of my abdomen, it's always in the same place. This place hurts when I'm using my laptop or when
I'm watching TV or when I'm sitting on the bus. Sometimes I get sharp stabbing pain on the left side of
my stomach. The pain seems to dissapear after I stand up.I did legal research on case reports where the claimant won their claim regarding the injury they suffered from as a result of Hepatitis B vaccine. 5 out of 11 case reports I found were Nerve or muscle related.

Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. I am Dr Uzair.
I am reviewing your post and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 8 months ago.

Since the pain is related to muscle movement and positional it is most like muscular and you should see a neurologist in this case.

Hope this helps.

I showed the location of the pain to my GP and he said it's the spleen. It's always the same place the location of the pain. Do you still think it's muscular or organ related?
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 8 months ago.

Since a good clinical examination can differentiate between muscular or organ pain, So according to the examination done by your GP you should see a gastroenterologist or medical specialist.

Best.

I haven't done an examination. I just showed my GP the area of the pain and he said it's where the spleen is.
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 8 months ago.

Thanks for the reply.

In that case it would be best to see gastroentrologist or medical specialist as he can address both type of pain either muscular or arising from internal organs.

But I know it's not my stomach because when I eat, I can feel the food go down my system normally but then I sometimes get the upper left abdominal pain, it is different I can feel the stomach processing food and the upper left abdominal pain both at the same time, and they are in two different locations.
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 8 months ago.

This can be from spleen, or colon or pancrease so a thorough examination is needed.

Best.

Do you think I should go see a Neurologist and it the test comes out normal, then go see a gastroentrologist?
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 8 months ago.

Yes, You can do that.

Best wishes.

I have a Ultrasound scan coming up, what tests would a gastroentrologist do?
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 7 months ago.

He would like to have ultrasound so see him after getting ultrasound. He might order blood test liver function tests.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I've had normal blood tests done and it all came out fine.
