Question: hello, on October the 23rd my period was ment to start, I had the cramping like it was coming, I got a little bit of blood and every time I wiped brown discharge, it stopped 3 days later and I never got an actually period I didn't use a pad at all. I had been cramping every day some days worst than others, my lower back has been cramping. My tummy feels really tender and bloated. Im going to the toilet a lot more to do number 2 but have trouble some times. Im getting a lot of heartburn. Im still breast feeding my 16 month old baby. I have taken 2 pregnancy test and both negative. Not sure what is going on.

Brief Answer:
Hi and thanks for your question.your not pregnant

Detailed Answer:
Based on my experience your not pregnant.
I usually do other investigations like abdominal ultrasound for patients with similar complains to rule out pelvic inflammatory diseases.If ultrasound reveals PID i start my patients on antibiotics and they do well
I also do lab investigations like complete blood count.
If you are exclusively breast feeding chances are of getting pregnant are low.
Well do not worry, just have abdominal ultrasound and cbc done.
Hope i answered your question , will be happy to help you if you have other queries.

I do not have kidney stones yet I have severe pain my left side and so far a ct scan and ultrasound haven't shown much that would be causing my problems. I have nausea quite often and often times will throw up or have loose bowel movements. I also have to pee every 20 minutes to 30 minutes max. I don't sleep much at night because I'm up so may times to pee. I can't take this much longer. Any other ideas as to what may be causing this?

I have a 3yr old that sudden developed an area of neck swelling. He is prett much asymtomatic. No fever. Periodic umbilical pain for the last 2 weeks. We went to the ER and they discovered that he has multiple enlarged lymph nodes bilaterally on his neck. The did an abdominal ultrasound which showed borderline splenomegaly and an enlarged peripancreatic lymph node. Rountine blood work came back normal. The ER doctors had no answers for me--just told me to follow up with my pediatrician. Any ideas as to what could cause this?

I sometimes wake up with a headache, vomiting every 30 minutes or so that include deep burps, chills, sinuses running, loose bowels & belching. This episode lasts 8 to 10 hours and I am rendered unable to cope during this time. My body seems to be purging itself. I recently went for an abdominal ultrasound & was told that I was excessively gassy. Could this be a symptom of severe gas build up? I also suffer from heartburn but not extreme.
