Tenderness/swelling of the spleen can be a sympton of ARS, but as a primary sympton it's low on the list. Again, I think you should let a doctor check and see if it's really your spleen. Your spleen is located in your upper left abdomen underneath the lower part of the rib cage and more under your arm than towards the front. It is VERY hard to diagnose tenderness and/or swelling in the spleen if you are not a doctor. It is said that it is one of the harder organs to check for inexperienced med students. Given this, I wouldn't jump to conclusions. Remeber that your large colon runs in that area too, so it could be that you are stressing yourself and causing problems with that intestine which is causing your discomfort/tenderness. I've had this "sympton" myself, but I'm finally believing what I just told you. Stress is a horrible thing and it can make you think all sorts pains are something that they might not be. Again, please check with your doctor and get an expert opinion to be sure.
