Question: I have a swollen abdomen for 23 days now. I have had dizzy spells, lower right abdominal pain, chills, 3xs yellow eyes, fatigue, black tarry stools a few times, nausea, frequent urination and urgency, and the list goes on. I’ve had 2 ct-scans that have not detected anything. Tested positive for group b in urine but have taken 2 rounds of amoxicillin. Can anyone help me

Brief Answer:
Can be a possible urinary tract infction.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for query.
Fever with chills with pain in lower abdomen along with increase in frequency of urination can be suggestive of ongoing infection in urinary tract.Urinary tract infection is something very common in females.
Chills any where is body is suggestive of active infection(usually bacterial).
However black tarry stool can be suggestive of bleed in upper gastro intestinal tract.As per protocol a test called stool for occult blood should be done to make sure if tarry appearance is due to blood or not.
Yellowing of eye with swelling in stomach can be due to mild to moderate(Mild most likely as it is not reflected in ultrasound or CT scans) inflammation in liver termed as hepatitis.
Initially i would suggest you to go for following tests-
Complete blood count with Total and differencial leucocyte counts.
Urine microscopy.
HBsAg-To rule out hepatitis.
Stool for occult blood.
Stool routine and microscopy(Rule out cause of infection)
Direct and indirect bilirubin levels of blood.

Any further opinion can be given only after hoing through reports of these baseline tests.

By swollen abdomen you mean to say oedema?Please make clear.
Hope i was helpful.
Thanks!

39 asian female, menses Nov 6-12, abdominal pain LLQ goes away when supine, tender to touch, no fever, ate (stupidly) at Burger King Mon evening. Onset next morning, vomiting. No diarrhea. Some bloating, + flatulence and last BM Monday. At Disney world for the week. Seem to walk ok, occasional cramping. Nothing that brings me to my knees. Back pain because I am walking in flip flops, perhaps? Have one day left (today) and headed home tomorrow morning. Warrant an ER visit? Pain tolerable with Motrin.

I am on bio-identical hormones and my testosterone level has gone from 62 to 247 in the last 8mos. My GYN has finally told me to stop the testosterone for a while. I ve been having abdominal pain and now lower/upper back pain for the past 3mos. Had ultrasound last wk and it came back showing uterus is anteverted, small hypoechoic foci likely respresents fibroids measuring 8mm. As well as a 1.5cm right ovarian cyst containing some internal debris and a 1.3cm simple left ovarian cyst. Can this be a result of the high testosterone? And is this something to be concerned about? And will these go away on their own?

I am a 31 yo female who has been experiencing urinary urgency and incontinence for about 2 years with abdominal pain. Had gall bladder removed about 3 years ago. My recent labs show elevated AST and Alt with low red blood cell count but high MCV MCH.Are any of these things related?

Hi, i am writing on behalf of a friend. He had been diagnosed with having IBS when he was 13, without a colonoscopy, and now he is 25. He has been having abdominal pain and interchanges of diarrhea and constipation all these years but a month ago it suddenly got really worse (after having some fish, but even if it was bad, he had never experienced such excruciating pain again), as in one day he started to ache so much he couldn't get up off the floor. It was like stabbing and ripping him apart. He went to the hospital and had blood work done and an X-ray and they said it was normal but suggested a colonoscopy but he didn't go through with it. Ever since he has been having really severe abdominal pain and interchanges of diarrhea and constipation and he has been to several doctors, one prescribing him with amitriptyline and antibiotics for the intestine, and another after that giving him mebeverine hydrochloride alone. He took the antibiotics and amitriptyline for almost a month and it helped him a bit but in the evening he would none the less have the return of the severe pain in his entire abdomen, sometimes centering on the left upper side of it. Then he went to the other doctor who perscribed mebeverine hydrochloride, telling him it would instantly help, without that being the case when he tried it. He had extensive blood work done and everything was normal, no inflammation or anemia, and the doctor said he didn't need anything else and should just take the mebeverine. But he is still in pain and i was wondering if it could be something else with these symptoms. Should he have a colonoscopy or some other less painful test? He also has Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease.
