Question: I am 41 with pregnancy symptoms, I have taken a hp and it was negative awaiting the bloodwork - i am also a diabetic, but controlled. Constant nausea in the morning and night, but eating fine, dizziness, slight headache, lower abdominal cramping for the past two days - could this be something else other than pregnancy?

Hello!

Thank you for the query.

Nausea, dizziness, headache can be caused by impeded blood flow through the brain. It happens when the vessels (most commonly cervical arteries) are narrow so the blood amount is not enough. Such symptoms can be also caused by heart problems, like heart failure, heart ischemia, arrhythmia.
Lower abdominal cramping can be due to intestine problems(constipations, bloating, blood in stool appears), ovarian or uterus diseases (strange bleedings can appear).
Depending of which symptoms are similar to your, you should have diagnostics.
Heart ECG, stress test, cervical arteries Ultrasound, abdominal ultrasound, trans-vaginal ultrasound, full blood work, urine analysis should be performed.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
Regards.

I am a 29 year old male and for the past couple of weeks I've been having issues when I urinate and it's starting to worry me. I constantly have to push, or strain, in order to urinate. If I don't push when attempting to urinate then my urine just trickles out or doesn't come out at all plus it takes a really long time for me to start urinating and when I finally do start to urinate for some reason it will stop then go then stop again. Also it feels like I was not able to empty my bladder completely. I'm also suffering from the constant urge to urinate and urinary frequency. It feels like I always have the urge to urinate. I have to get up and urinate 3 or 4 times at night. My urine looks a little darker than normal, but it's not cloudy nor does it smell. It kinda burns when I urinate. It's like an odd feeling. When I urinate I feel this burning, tingling, pins and needles sensation. I don't know how to explain it. All of these urinary issues that I'm having is driving me crazy. I never had a bladder or urinary tract infection before. I passed kidney stones about a year ago and they were small. I was wondering what might be the cause of all these urinary problems. Why do I have to strain all the time and why do I have this constant urge to urinate? Do I have a a UTI or some other type of infection?

Sharp intermittent right side groin pain. Lasts approx 2 secs. Started for first time 2 months ago. History kidney infection, and because of this scar tissue in right kidney with small calcifications. Also had urinary tract infection a month ago. Doesn't seem to be related to movement. Seems to becoming more regular and sharper. Can't feel any signs of hernia. Doctor thought it might be nerve related but I'm not sure, thinking it might beva kidney stone?
