about a week ago, I had some digestive trouble, fever, vomiting and diarreah.
this lasted through the night, and in the morning I was better, but a bit weak.
the second morning waking up I noticed I had nerve pain in my left rib which seemed to be "cold". it was not long before this spread to my back (near the left side of my spine in the muscle) and continued down the outside back part of my leg to my foot.

for about a week now I have had the feeling of a full abdomine, acute abdominal pain, (and also higher in the rib) back pain, which continues down the leg.

since then I've had trouble digesting food quickly, though I have not had any vomiting.

thank you very much for any help you would be able to offer.

  • Could be gallbladder though it's on the wrong side. But those are the symptoms... Maybe liver, but that would be kind of rare on that side. Usually these 2 things bother you on the right side.. Good luck

  • I had many of the same symptoms for almost two weeks and it was my spleen. It eventually ruptured and I had emergency surgery to remove it.
