Question: Hi, I'm a 26 year old female. I am getting a very sharp, stabbing pain in my
lower right abdomen just before and after urinating. No discomfort at any other
time. I started a juice fast two days ago and have been having headaches,
fatigue and alternating between very hot / sweating and cold / shivering - I am
unsure whether these symptoms are the result of the change in diet or an
illness. I do have a small ovarian cyst on my right ovary - could this be the
cause of the pain? I also wondered if it was a UTI as I have had UTIs before,
but there is no burning / frequent need to urinate - just a stabbing pain before and after relieving myself. My bowel movements have also been less frequent since commencing the fast - could this be causing the pain before urinating? Thank you in advance for any
help.

Hello,

Thanks for the query.

Causes of pain in right lower abdomen are kidney stone, appendicitis, colitis, ovarian cysts,ovarian torsion, ectopic pregnancy etc.

In view of symptoms like stabbing pain in lower right abdomen just before and after urinating, possibility of kidney stone stuck at lower ureter seems quiet likely.

Possibility of ovarian cyst causing pain is also likely , though comparatively it seems less likely.As it would have more of continuous pain and not much related to urination.

Ideal next step would be to get a sonography done, this will evaluate most of the cause of pain in this region.

Mean while you can take analgesic to relieve pain.

Hope this answers your question.Please feel free to ask if there are doubts.

Regards.

Recently I have developed a pain in my lower back with gas pain and bloating and pain on my lower right side. This increases before I urinate. I had a work-up a few days ago saw a gastro- xray showed alot of stool and maybe some liver swelling. I am in alot of pain that goes away throughout the day, but comes back about 1 hour after eating around belly button. Can you help? Coiuld this be an ovarian cyst? I am female 54 years old- had a hysterectomy and usually have good health except for a cervical disc & nerve problem and Hasimotos thyroiditis.

I am on bio-identical hormones and my testosterone level has gone from 62 to 247 in the last 8mos. My GYN has finally told me to stop the testosterone for a while. I ve been having abdominal pain and now lower/upper back pain for the past 3mos. Had ultrasound last wk and it came back showing uterus is anteverted, small hypoechoic foci likely respresents fibroids measuring 8mm. As well as a 1.5cm right ovarian cyst containing some internal debris and a 1.3cm simple left ovarian cyst. Can this be a result of the high testosterone? And is this something to be concerned about? And will these go away on their own?
