Causes Of Abdominal Pain 2 Fingers Above The Navel?
I am a housewife 3 days ago I was hospitalized at one clinic. When examined from blood to urine, only leukocytes were high at 19,300 while abdominal pain was not found for what reason. The doctor said that pain in that area was unusual. I’m curious, what really hurts in my stomach. Lever, stomach and urinary tract are normal. Please help with a solution.
Hello good night Neli.
Leukocytes or white blood cells are blood cells that have a role in the immune system. Normal leukocyte levels range from 4,000/µL to 11,000/µL in adults. High levels of leukocytes (also known as leukocytosis) can indicate an ongoing infection in any part of the body from head to toe. For example, throat infections, lung infections, gastrointestinal infections, urinary tract infections, reproductive tract infections, and so on. Apart from infection, leukocytosis can also be caused by diseases of the immune system or malignancies in blood cells (but in this disease the leukocyte level will be greatly increased), drug reactions, or spinal cord disorders, but these conditions are not more common than the process conditions. infection. Although infection is identical to leukocytosis, in certain infections or very severe infections, the opposite condition can occur, namely low levels of leukocytes, or referred to as leukopenia.
Abdominal pain 2 fingers above the navel can be caused by several possibilities, including:
inflammation of the stomach (gastritis) inflammation of the gallbladder (cholecystitis) or gallstones (cholelithiasis) fatty liver (fatty liver) hepatitis (inflammation of the liver tissue / liver) etc. In some diseases, routine blood laboratory tests alone are not enough. In digestive problems there are usually additional examinations, for example there is hepatitis there is an examination of HBsAg in the blood, in fatty liver and inflammation / gallbladder stones a urine laboratory examination is required. In cases of urinary tract infection or urinary tract stones, a urine lab examination, ultrasound of the urinary tract, or x-rays may be necessary. And so forth.
We cannot confirm the condition / diagnosis that you are experiencing only from a brief complaint of abdominal pain and increased leukocyte results. We recommend that you consult again with the doctor who treats you, because he is the one who knows the history of your journey and the development of your disease. If you are not satisfied with the doctor's explanation, you can also ask for another opinion (second opinion) to another doctor who is an expert in his field (eg a specialist in internal medicine).
That's all, hope it helps.
