Question: I HAVE BEEN HAVING SEVERE CRAMPS/SHARP PAINS IN MY PELVIS
FOR THE LAST 2 DAYS. IT IS SPORADIC BUT VERY UNCOMFORTABLE WHEN IT OCCURS. I CANT PINPOINT ANYTHING THAT I HAVE EATEN OR DONE THAT WOULD CONTRIBUTE TO THE ISSUE. I HAVE ALSO EXPERIENCED A SUDDEN WEIGHT GAIN OF ABOUT 5 POUNDS WITH THE PROBLEM

Hello dear ,

Warm welcome to Healthcaremagic.com

* There are vivid causes for this type of sharp pain in pelvis as intestine colic ,
ureter stone or others .
The differentiation of which requires more detailed inputs to answer the query

As a followup to your questions:

Bowel and urinary functions are normal.
Pain starts in center of pelvis/lower stomach and radiates to the sides.

There is no fever but I did have vomiting and diarrhea when this started 3 days ago.

Brief Answer:
Intestine infection more likely .

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the details .

* Seems more likely of intestine infection with colicky pain from intestine spasm .

* Guidelines for better recovery

- Drink more liquids as boiled water , lemon juice , coconut water , organic tea ,
coffee , butter milk .
- Prefer soft , vegan diet with avoidance of oily , spicy .
- Intake of PPI ( as omeprazole ) and anti spasmodic medicines ( as dicyclomine )
require prescription with your doctor . But still can wait for further 24 hours if
the sporadic pain does not bother that much .
- Later on if required may require ultrasound examination to rule out any other
possible cause depending upon the recovery .

Wishing you fine recovery .

Welcome for any further assistance .
Regards dear take care .

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.
