Hello!

Thank you for the query.

Such symptoms usually appears if there is spine problem (herniated spinal disc). It causes nerves compression and gives back pain radiating to the legs with numbness and superficial sensation disturbance. Nausea can also appear due to urinary tract stones. This pain appears suddenly, radiates to the lower abdomen and one side groin. Frequent urinating and pain during urinating appears.
It is advisable for you to go to ER and have check if the spinal compression is urgent. MRI should be performed. Abdominal ultrasound and urine analysis is also advisable.

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

Hi, I have noticed in the last 6 months or so that after orgasm my heartbeat is very irregular, with gaps and then large thumps, lasts for about one minute. I haven't noticed any other irregular heatbeats. I sometimes get palpitations if I am very nervous, say before I speak up in a large room of people. I guess this isn't related but I have in the last 2 years seen consultants due to persistent pins and needles especially at night when I can only sleep on my back with my arms by my side, I have also suffered joint pains, MS, Lupus have all been ruled out (had an MRI scan and blood tests), but could the P&N's be related to a heart problem?

Hi, my name is Michelle. I am a 19 year old and I took an MRI for my back because I was having lower back nerve pain from a college soccer injury. But when I got the results back, they said that they found nothing wrong with my lower back but instead, the doctors found a dark shadow in my right kidney. So I took an Ultra sound for it and the dark shawdow was about as big as a quater maybe a little bigger right in the center of the kidney. What does this dark shadow mean?
