I understand your concern..

Breast tenderness and pain occurring during periods is normal and is due to hormonal chances. I would suggest to take a self examination of the breast. If there is a palpable mass you need to get a mammography done to rule out any lesion.
If there is no mass palpable a simple ultrasound of breast would be sufficient.

Is the pain on the naval associated with gastritis or is there a pustule over the umbilicus.. If it's just gastritis an antacid would be sufficient.

For constipation take fibre rich diet and loud of water. Dulcolax tablet also helps to relieve constipation.

Hope I have answered your query. Feel free to ask any doubts. Good day.

Actually a proper examination of breast is required if you are not on periods.. Also get an ultrasound breast and forward me the report. With pictures it's difficult to reach a diagnosis. Take dulcolax tablet at night today along with cyclopam which will help to relieve pain. For UTI get a urine routine.. If there is pus cells you can start on taxim. Also get a urine culture sensitivity.

Hope i have answered your query. Good day.

Hi. I have been having extreme stomach pains. (I am going to the doctor's this weekend if I can get an appointment but it is so painful that I would like some advice now. I eat a VERY healthy plant-based diet. No milk, no refined carbs, etc. I either run 7 miles or go to the gym and work out on machines everyday (one rest day per week) and I do pilates and yoga. For about a week and a half though, I have been having UNBEARABLE bloating (and gas!) It has been cutting my work outs short and making my life a living hell. It is a "gurgling" pain (I don't know how else to put it) in my lower stomach and happens right after I eat and even just randomly when I haven't eaten in a while. What could it be?
