Brief Answer:
You should be investigated.

Detailed Answer:
Severe pain in lower abdomen cannot be due to herniated discs.
It can be due to Uterine problem, Ovarian issue,Appendicitis, Urinary bladder problem. Ultrasound abdomen will give a clue.
Till investigation, I prescribe Antispasmodic tablet containing Dicyclomine to my patients with similar complaints.
Please consult your doctor and proceed further.

hi my boyfriend had undergone a turp last month. he was sent home with a catheter as he was unsuccessful to trial a void at hosp.they made an appt about for ten days later to do another trial of void and he was successful.but ever since then he was having little trouble to urinate but only urinating about 100mls every two hrs. about a week ago he had passed some clots then after that he couldnt urinate well and had stinging and pain in his penis and sharp pains in his rectum. i took him to the emergency and he had retained urine in his bladder.the doctors catherised him and had blood in his urine and some clots. hes been in hospital ever since. his urine in the bag is clear now but he has noticed some pus around the tip of his penis coming out from the inside of the head of the penis. aswell just below the head of the penis is quite inflammed around the skin. he is really scared and worried that he may not be able to urinate and experience agony pain when he does trial of void. i am worried for him.

I am 48 year old male. My wight is 60 kgs. I have no sugar or BP problem. recntly about a month back, I experienced pain in lower abdomine and pain in testicles after I passed urin. I could not pass urine that day for almost 6 hours and when I passed it was under pressure. The pain started after I passed urine. Though I suffered the pain for about an hour or so later it did not relapse. However I had some discomfor in my lower back and hip. I consulted a doc who suspected kidney stone. I took the medicine (homeo) prescribedby him. I also followed hios suggestion of drinking good amunt of water. Though the pain has completely dissapeared i some time do have a dull pain in the back and just above the testicles on the sides. It does not in any way affect my regualr work, but definitely a bit discomfortable. My question to you is 1. Does retaining urine under pressure in bladder cause renal stones. 2. What care shopuld I take ?
