Hi XXXXXXX,

It seems like you are in acute pain, going by the nature of your symptoms.

Is your pain on the upper abdomen or lower abdomen? You say it is more on the left side. Left sided upper abdominal pain is most commonly due to acute gastritis. This can be treated easily with an antacid like Omeprazole.

If it is in the left lower abdomen then it could be due to colitis, salpingitis (in females).

I am sorry, you have not mentioned your age and gender. Please do mention them. Also, I would like to know if this is the first time you are experiencing this symptom or if it is present for some time now.

Please write a bit more about your concern.

However, going by your present query it seems like an acute problem, which may want you to go to the Emergency room at the earliest.

I am awaiting your response to help you quicker.

Regards,

Hi XXXXXXX,

Thanks for reverting with the details.

Acute pain abdomen in a young woman in reproductive age group as you should not be neglected.

You will benefit maximum by getting an ultrasound scan of the abdomen at the earliest to find out the cause of your pain. In my interpretation, it mostly is Appendicitis or salpigitis.

Please fix an appointment at the doctor's office at the earliest and get evaluated.

My concern is that you get better soon and that we do not create complications from the existing condition.

I hope you agree with me. Get well soon.

Regards,

Hi,

Thanks for the further inputs.

Lower abdominal pain in the suprapubic region can also be due to Pelvic Inflammatory Diseases (PID).

Please get an ultrasound done as I said in my earlier reply. Additionally, get an urine routine test done.

Regards,

Hi,I have a history of kidney stones but prior to this time I never had pain in my belly button. This time I starting having pain in belly button then lower right side now it has moved into back. It is now dull pain in lower rt and back. Sharp pain when I touch my belly button or bend over. My doctor says it is not appendicitis and has checked liver, pancreas, and other organs in abdominal area. I have naseau but have not thrown up. Any ideas? Could this be another stone?

Hello, My wife had cold and cough for the last 4 days and I visited a Pulmonologist. He prescribed some tablets and also a nasal spray. She takes nebulization for 3-4 times a day(duolin ). She was an Astma patient in childhood.
Since yesterday, she is having unbearable stomach ache and pain around the umbilical cord region on abdomen and we rushed her to hospital. They conducted a Chest X Ray and Scan on the pelvic region. Both came out as normal. No specialist were available yesterday and hence we had to come back.
She had about 3-4 instances of vomitting in the last 2 days.

She was operated earlier for appendicitis and stones in the gall bladder.

She will be visiting an Gasteroenterologist today or tomm.
Do you have any advise on the next course of action.

Hi,

I am 19 year old caucasin female, 68inches, 161 lbs. In the last two years I have gotten sick often and think there has to be a conncetion between some of it. I am a college student from poverty level familys so I don't really have insuracne to get testing done.



In Nov 2009 (1.5 years ago) I got pneumonia, Jan 2010, an appendicitis, diagnosed with March 2010 H. pylori. In June I went to Arizona and California I did not tan at all. I went for a walk with a Caribbean, African and Native American Friend. They all got much darker but I didn't even though I didn't use sunscreen. July 2010, bad sinus infection, concussion (injury caused). Aug stomach virus? In Sept blood work was done and I was extremely Vit D deficient. So started taking Vit D and a Multi Vit. In Sept they diagnosed me with a kidney infection



Since November 2010, I have had colitis. There is pretty regularly blood in my stool which is normal texture. There is colon and abdominal pain associated with this. After an excretion it is worse. Especially during my periods the pain seems to be worse. I am often naseua or at least lack an appetite.

I am not anemic, C. Diff, parasites and an inflammatory blood test were negative. They suggested I tried going gluten free but it didnt seem to help

Since February Ive been getting chills, night sweats and occasionally fevers.

In March I fainted. We were talking about phlebotomy but Ive always found blood intersting. The next few days I know my bp was low like 95/60.

In april I started having heart palpations. My resting heart rate would range 120-58 but typically 100+. My bp range anywhere 144/103 to 120/56 to 112/82. My ekg look fine

The beginning of May my urine would be sometimes a burnt color but then an hour later it may be clear or sometimes it would be a greenish color. I typically drink 2 L of water per day. my eating habits havent changed. Three weeks later, I started getting intermediate flank pain. There was blood in the urine but everything else was fine. The doctors are assuming I have kidney stones.

I am waiting to hear from a free/probono specialist to have a colonoscopy done to hopefully determine the colitis source. But ive been waiting since march.

If you could think of anything that might possibly help me figure out what the heck is wrong with me I would be grateful.

Thanks have a great day!
