I've been having upper abdominal pain, either in the center of my chest or to the left or sometimes right side of my chest. This is often accompanied by nausea, fatigue and indigestion, especially belching.
I take aciphex for heartburn, but, it's not helping get rid of this pain. I'm, also, having pain in my under arms, neck and sometimes upperback.
I went to the ER about 1 month ago because this pain was terrible and accompanied by severe vomiting at that time. The ER did a CT Scan with contrast looking for an intestinal obstruction, however they said they didn't see an obstruction, but I had mesecentric adenitis, which they described as inflammation of the lymph nodes throughout my abdomen.
I googled, "mesecentric adenitis" and the info I read said it's mainly seen in kids or teens, but very rare in adults. I'm 36 and I had my appendix out 6 years ago, so it's not my appendix causing the enlarged lymph nodes.
Any ideas?? I thought maybe a bad gall bladder, but shouldn't the CT scan show that??
