I recently got a CT scan of my Pelvis and Abdomen because I kept feeling a weird sensation on my left side of torso.

The feeling is just like a slight pressure more towards the back then the front.

I have also had an ultrasound.

Everything came back 100 percent normal except that I had constipation. Seemed like there was food all throughout my colon and just not in the lower quadrant like it should be.

Other thing that came back was the “Calcified Nodule Cyst”. They said that I had two very tiny ones that where benign and not cancerous.

One was in my liver and one is on my left liver lobe.

My question is what is this all about? Is this common? They asked if I drunk a lot in the past and I said no because I didn’t. I do have heavy drinks once in a blue moon on special occasions but that is it.


+Can I still drink alcohol or should I stay away from it? Will my cyst increase do to Alcohol?

+What should I watch out for having a cyst in my Liver?

+I read something online saying that a calcified liver will heal itself and nothing special is required, is this

+I have a high IGA and an elevated IGM levels, does this have anything to do with that?


I have a five major complete work up blood tests drawn all from different Doctors saying that I am completely healthy.

I am 35 now, is this just a sign of getting old?

Other symptoms…

Only two symptoms I really have left are the weird sensation that I have on my left face on my upper chick and around my left eye. I watch an extremely large amount of TV and on the computer like 24/7 doing large amounts of school work.

I did go to an allergist and got a complete work up done to find out what I am allergic to and found out that I am extremely allergic to grass and ragweed.

My primary doctor said that my face sensation is nothing and that I should just take a hot shower and lean over to let my sinuses drain.

I read somewhere else that sometimes you could have a dry face and you just need to put lotion on it.

My second symptom is just the weird sensation that I feel around my left side torso. Feels like there is a slight pressure their mainly when I sit down for long periods of time.


Both of these symptoms have absolutely no pain. Nothing else has occurred and I have gotten completely better from everything else. I sleep absolutely great, I feel great, and I am happy. I would just like to finish up with these last few symptoms and move on with my life.


I did do a stool test 3 times which I did not obey the eating requirement all too well I think. But they did come back positive for “Fecal Occult Blood Test”, all three. But my Primary Doctor again said that was due to my bloating and they are not really reliable.

Basically at the end of the day I am just trying to figure out if I have IBS. I just want to know so I can move on with my life.

My dad has celiac and I have been tested 3 ways to Sunday saying I do not have Celiac. He has always had all kinds of abdominal pain and that is where I think I get this from.


I was told by my Doctor to take Metamucil and Probiotics which I have started and man let me tell you I feel much better on this stuff. I wish I knew why but I just do I guess. I have great bowl movements and no lower intestine pain right before going to the bathroom.

Final Notes:
I have the other two tests but they say about the same exact thing and are only on paper.

So what does everyone think about all this?

What should I do?

Am I essentially okay? Or do I have a possibly of developing cancer in the future more so then the next person? My family does not have a history of any major diseases that I know of.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You!

Ok I am not sure if this helps or not, but I no longer have the weird feeling in my left torso, that is gone.

The only feeling that I have left is the weird sensation right on the left side of my nose and possibly sometimes below my left eye.

It comes and go.

If I put an eye patch on my left eye I do not feel the sensation. So I am thinking it is eye strain or that it is just pressure from the patch distracting the other sensation.

I just went for a walk and I really didn’t feel it. So I think it might only come when I look down at the computer screen or watch TV.

I mean how are you suppose to know when you need glasses? I mean I can still read the words but is it just harder for me to do so now?

I recently moved a very heavy flat screen and put it on my shoulder/back, have been studying a lot by looking down and on the computer, and have been watching TV until like 4 in the morning sometimes.

I think this might be related to my Shoulders or middle back or upper neck but I am not sure. Can a pinched nerve affect facial muscles?
