Question: Hello:
I have been experiencing very sharp pain in my back in the general area of my hip/pelvic area that seems to be getting worse over the past 3 weeks. When I first get up in the morning, I am fine for about 15 minutes; but when the pain starts it doesn't go away...in fact, it moves from one hip area to the other. Also, once it starts I can't hardly standup. If I am cooking, I have to keep shifting my weight. Also, lately (last couple of days) I am experiencing nausea.

The reasons for joint and muscle pains at your age commonly are:
1. Rheumatoid arthritis-
2. Gout
3. Vitamin B12 defi
4. Vitamin D defi
5. Calcium deficiency
6. Osteoporosis.
Ideal person to consult for this is orthopedic surgeon or rheumatologist.

Please discuss this with your family doctor and ask for a proper referral.

Most of the cases respond satisfactorily to the treatment.

After examination the doctor may advise some investigations like

In mean time, this should help.

1. Do take more of fruits, vegetables soups etc.
2. Maintain healthy routine, keep walking till you have pain, and just stop before pain starts
3. Apply some analgesic oint over the site of pain
4. Milk and milk products are good source of calcium

Two days ago I started getting occasional sharp pain inside my right ear and occasional shooting pains in my head, also on the right side. My head feels a little tender in that spot. I also noticed some small, painless lumps on my jaw line under my right ear. I have no idea if they re related to the other symptoms. Any ideas what this could be?

My period is now 16 days late, and it is very regular...I use a menstruation tracker. I have been feeling sick to my stomach, getting headaches, severe backaches, and feeling dizzy. I did take a pregnancy test, but it was negative, so I wasn't too worried because I am on the pill (although there were probably a few times where I forgot to take it and then doubled up the next night). Suddenly today, I started getting severe sharp pains in my lower abdomen (mostly on the left side, but radiating to both sides) and severe pains in my upper abdomen, like I was going to throw up...I feel weak and started to have bright red bleeding, although it isn't heavy. all day today before the pain, I was having brown discharge that had stringy clots in it. I am debating on visiting the ER and wanted to ask your opinion.
