I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

Delayed periods. Feeling sick, headache, backache and dizzy. Taking pill. Having brown discharge. Concerned?

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.

Hi dear user, thanks for your query.
As per your history, you missed your pills some times, got your period late, having sharp pain and dizziness. In my opinion, I will like to rule out some early pregnancy or ectopic pregnancy( pregnancy outside uterine cavity). Pregnancy test can be negative or faintly positive in these two cases. I used to advise serum beta HCG levels with a repeat level after 48 hrs and a TVS(transvaginal scan) to rule out these.
Hope this helps.

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?
