Abdominal pain and breathing difficulties (General Medicine)

Dr. Sandeep Singh., MBBS


Medical Case Details:

Hello doctors,

An 18 year old female patient came to me with hypotension, abdominal pain, and breathing difficulties. The symptoms were managed with fluids and painkillers. All her routine tests are all in the normal range. She does not have a mass in the abdomen and has no history of pain during menstruation. Her chest and abdomen x-rays are also normal. But, she is again complaining of abdominal pain. The patient does not have a fever, and test for typhoid is also negative. What can be the cause of this abdominal pain and breathing difficulty?

    Hello Dr.Sandeep Singh,
    If the test results and your clinical judgment doesn't find any medical condition, it is a strong indication towards psychosomatic complaints. If breathing difficulties are more like heavy breathing/palpitations/anxiety symptoms, it is a further clue towards psycho-somatic disorder. The patient can be referred to a clinical psychologist for her psychological treatment.

    If all tests are normal and no underlying pathology found, ask the patient if the pain is having an impact on quality of life. If no, just reassure the patient. However, hypotension of 60/40 needs to be looked into. Breathing diff may be due to an anxiety disorder.
