    Suggest treatment for diarrhea and occasional dizziness

Posted on Tue, 17 Oct 2017 in Medicines and Side Effects
Question: All my symptoms:

Recent: Pain/tenderness in right side toward back under top rib, dull, not relieved or worsened with movement or change in position, but very stiff when waking x 3 wks
Severe diarrhea after eating
N&V occasionally after eating
Hematuria in latest UA
Occasional dizziness and sweats
Warm flashes, no fever
Severely itchy hands, particularly right palm every day
*Sudden blurry vision/inability to read even if my glasses are on.

Going on  for about 1 yr now:

Swollen ankles always
Severe cramps in feet/legs especially at night, *getting much worse lately causing me to jump put of bed in extreme pain!
Occasional loss of circulation to extremities

Although No frequency/urgency/pain peeing and normal tests After the ER except RBCs in urine. Last CMP all normal exception of low protein.  Prior CMP showed low sodium and other electrolyte imbalances I don't remember.

I don't know if any of this stuff can be linked together. Maybe some of it maybe not any of it but this is everything that I can think of that I've been experiencing

Thanks for query,

Pin in Rt side of abdomen just below Rib cage could be either due to either stone in kidney or gallbladder and needs to be investigated.

Consult qualified Urologist or General Surgeon for clinical examination and get following basic tests done to confirm the diagnosis.
1) Urine routine and culture.
2) Ultrasound scanning of abdomen and pelvis
3) Liver Function tests.

Further treatment will depend upon the result of these tests and final diagnosis.
