chronic abdominal wall pain - UNC School of Medicine

Chronic abdominal wall pain (CAWP) refers to the pain originating from the abdominal wall which is often misdiagnosed as arising from a source inside the abdominal cavity, often resulting in inappropriate diagnostic investigations, unsatisfactory treatment, and considerable costs. In spite of being implicated in as many as 10% of patients with chronic abdominal pain of unknown cause seen by gastroenterologists, this condition has received little research and clinical attention (1). Thompson et al estimated that about 1% of all referrals for chronic abdominal pain made to a general surgeon were eventually considered to be CAWP (2). In a study of patient referrals to gastroenterologists over a 5-year period, Costanza et al showed that CAWP comprised 7.8% (133 of 1708) patients referred with abdominal pain. Referring physicians were able to suspect CAWP in only 3% of their patients, which suggests the relative unawareness of this condition (3). By contrast, physicians aware of this condition have reported seeing between one to two such patients in a week to three per day (4). Even in 1926, when Carnett first described the examination process to differentiate pain of abdominal wall origin from intra abdominal pain, he commented on CAWP being a frequently missed diagnosis (5). What is within the abdominal wall? The most important cause of CAWP is entrapment of a branch (anterior cutaneous) of one of the lower thoracic (T 7-T 12) intercostal (rib cage) nerves in its tortuous course through the abdominal wall muscle. After turning at a 90º angle, the nerve passes from the posterior sheath of the abdominal wall muscle (rectus abdominis) through a fibrous opening and then branches at right angles while passing through its anterior sheath. It has been thought that the underlying problem is nerve compression with resulting ischemia or lack of blood supply, explained by the nerve's course through the muscle. Applegate termed the condition as "anterior cutaneous nerve entrapment syndrome" and suggested the entrapped nerve may also be pushed by intra- or extra-abdominal pressure or pulled by a scar causing pain in the abdominal wall (6). Other diseases affecting the nerves such as diabetes, herpes zoster, trauma, and rarely cancer may also cause symptoms of CAWP (1). Occasionally abdominal wall hematomas (blood filled collections), hernias and painful rib ("slipped rib") may account for abdominal wall pain (7). How is abdominal wall pain diagnosed? CAWP is most commonly diagnosed on the basis of a patient's history and a physical examination. CAWP more commonly involves right side of the abdomen and may be at or close to an old surgical scar or, in the absence of a scar, it is frequently at the outer edge of the abdominal muscle (rectus abdominis). The pain experienced is usually sharp and there is often extreme tenderness upon gentle stroking or pinching in that area of the skin. The patient may guard the area from light touch, sometimes by seizing the examiner's hand. The pain may extend backwards and up to the vertebral body if its origin is related to nerve root in the spinal cord. An important finding is that...

Don't Take a Chance With a Heart Attack: Know the Facts and Act Fast

One evening I felt pressure in my chest and tingling down both arms. I just didn’t think I could be having a heart attack. I didn’t expect it to happen to me. The next morning, I still had a strange sensation in my chest. I called the doctor and was sent to the hospital. Considering how many first heart attacks are fatal, I was lucky to be alive the following morning to seek medical help. ” Ann Steigler’s Story M ore than 1 million people in the United States have heart attacks each year. Many of them don’t act quickly enough to make it to the hospital on time for help. When a heart attack happens, delay in treatment can be deadly. Learn the warning symptoms of a heart attack, and know the single most important thing you can do to save a life: call 9–1–1 immediately for emergency medical care. What Is a Heart Attack and Who Is At Risk? A heart attack happens when blood flow to the heart suddenly becomes blocked and the heart can’t get oxygen. If not treated quickly, the heart muscle fails to pump and begins to die. Heart attacks most often occur as a result of coronary heart disease (CHD), also called coronary artery disease. Certain risk factors make it more likely that you will develop CHD and Of the people who die from heart attacks, about half die within an hour of their first symptoms and before they reach the hospital. have a heart attack. Major risk factors for a heart attack that you can control include smoking, overweight and obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, an unhealthy diet, and lack of physical activity. Risk factors that you can’t control include a family history of early heart disease and increasing age. Talk to your health care provider to find out whether you are at risk for a heart attack. 1 Know the Symptoms of a Heart Attack Many people aren’t sure what’s wrong when they are having symptoms of a heart attack. Some of the most common warning symptoms of a heart attack for men and women are: ◆◆ Chest pain or discomfort. Most heart attacks involve discomfort in the center or left side of the chest. The discomfort usually lasts for more than a few minutes or goes away and comes back. It can feel like pressure, squeezing, fullness, or pain. It also can feel like heartburn or indigestion. ◆◆ Upper body discomfort. You may feel pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, shoulders, neck, jaw, or upper part of the stomach (above the belly button)....

HEART ATTACK What are the symptoms? Did you know that men ...

What are the symptoms? Did you know that men and women often experience different symptoms? MEN….. often, but not always, experience the classic warning signs of a heart attack: •Pressure, fullness, squeezing or pain in the center of the chest that goes away and comes back • •Pain that spreads to the shoulders, neck or arms STROKE What are the symptoms? •Face is uneven •One Arm drifts down •Speech coming out strangely •Then it's Time to call 911 Call 9-1-1 at any sign of stroke ACT FAST - Time is Brain • •Chest discomfort with lightheadedness, fainting, sweating, nausea, or shortness of breath • Trigger: Men most often report physical exertion prior to heart attacks. WOMEN….. may experience the classic symptoms, but they are often milder. Women may also have other symptoms like: •Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing • •Nausea, vomiting or dizziness • •Back or jaw pain • •Unexplained anxiety, weakness or fatigue Stroke is a medical emergency. Another way of looking for warning signs of stroke is to look for: •Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg, especially on one side of the body •Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding •Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes •Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination •Sudden, severe headache with no known cause • •Palpitations, cold sweats or paleness • •Mild, flu-like symptoms Trigger: Women most often report emotional stress prior to heart attacks. What is a heart attack? A heart attack occurs when a vessel supplying the heart muscle with oxygen and nutrients becomes completely blocked. This blocks the supply of blood to the heart muscle. That part of the muscle will begin to die if the individual does not immediately seek medical attention. Call 9-1-1 for any signs of a heart attack What causes it? (Risk Factors) Uncontrollable: Age, gender and family history Controllable: Tobacco use, high cholesterol, hypertension, sedentary lifestyle, overweight, diabetes and stress What is a stroke? A stroke occurs when a blood vessel that carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain is either blocked by a clot or bursts. When that happens, part of the brain cannot get the blood (and oxygen) it needs, so it starts to die. What causes it? (Risk Factors) •Hypertension •Previous stroke •Heart disease •Diabetes •Tobacco use •Irregular heart beat (Atrial Fibrillation) •Obesity •High cholesterol •Heavy alcohol use...
