Discussions that mention tylenol

General Health board

Thanks for answering. I'm hoping it turns out to be something like you suggested. I know I have a history of endometriosis, too, so I guess anything is possible.

I'm still having pain in my lower left side, kind of like a cross between an ache and a squeezing-type feeling. I've been taking Extra Strength Tylenol and Extra Strength Excedrin, but it really doesn't seem to be helping. It's getting pretty hard to find a position that's comfortable, and it doesn't help having to sit at my computer desk all day.

They've scheduled my CT scan for Tuesday afternoon.
I saw that you're taking X-strength Tylenol and X-strength Excedrin. Please read the label if you're taking them at the same time. The active ingredient in tylenol is acetomenophen. If I'm not mistaken, excedrin has both aspirin and acetomenophen in it. Too much acetomenophen can cause liver damage. And please let us all know what they find when you have your other tests. Good luck!
Thanks everyone.... I'll definitely post back to let you know what I find out. My sister told me about another woman who had the same symptoms and findings on ultrasound, and it turned out that she had internal bleeding from the sites of endometriosis.

Last night, the pain seemed to be getting a bit worse, and my stomach felt very tight to the touch, almost hard. And now this morning the pain doesn't seem to be as bad, but it's still there, so I'm not sure what's going on.

And thanks for the heads-up on the Tylenol and Excedrin.... I read the labels and they both do contain acetaminophen. I'll be sure to space them out better from now on.

I guess the only thing I can do is wait until I get the CT done on Tuesday. I'll post back and let you guys know. Thanks again.
