Question: 58 years old, 10 days in: abdominal pain( radiating, often in lower right ), fatigue, headache, hot and cold sweats. No constipation, no diarrhea, no blood in urine or stool. No problem passing uring/stool/gas.
Symptoms ebb-and flow through the day, it's disabling me.

I had a similar episode 3 months ago, it did go away on it's own after about a week. This time it seems to be here for good. 4 Ibuprofen and a 3 hour nap usually make me feel kind of normal, but the abdominal pain is fairly constant now.

I am quite sure both events are the same thing.

I also had a hernia mesh put in 10 years ago.
