Have abdominal pain with indigestion. All tests done. Have been on antibiotics. What to do?

My daughter has had low abdominal pain with indigestion, we have been to the er a few times and they have done cat scans and ultrasounds. They said she has free fluid in the low peritoneal cavity and thought she had PID. None of her cultures came back positive and she has been on antibiotics for several days with no improvement

Dear Ma'am,

Sorry to hear about your daughter's problem. You should also get a urine culture done as PID is often associated with urinary infection and that is often neglected.
Also PID and UTI require a prolonged course of antibiotics (for at least 5-7 days).
If her pain is still persisting, she should also undergo an abdominal ultrasound, which will give information about the rest of the abdomen as well.

Hoping for the best.

low abdominal pain with indigestion, fluid in the low peritoneal cavity and cultures negative
thus the problem is not infectiuous but rather metabolic or inflammatory.

Diagnosis of crohn's disease, or other inflammatory disease disease or sick cell vaso occlusive crisis
Get differentiating work ups endoscopic biopsy, Hb electrophoresis, CRP and barium study

Management of the confirm diagnosis

Kind regards

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for calling H.C.M.Forum.
Your daughter had abdominal pain, and indigestion. C.T.scan showed fluid in low peritonial cavity. Cultures came positive. No improvement with antibiotics.
i advise you to consult a gynacologist for diagnosis and treatment. There could be yeast or trichomoniasis.
Other possibilities could be gastric irritation due to diet, lactose intolarance, urinary tract infection, etc.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery.
Best regards.
