welcome to health care magic,
hope that you are hale and hearty. this no specific abdominal cramp may be due to changes in food habit,mild gastroenteritis,constipation and so is some sorts of functional disorder. you shouldn"t be worry too much.have you any some problems? I cite some symptoms that demands carefull attention like unprovoked bleeding per rectum,any lump in abdomen associated pain,changing in bowel habit such as early morning diarrhoea,racent marked weight loss,unexplained should not apprehend unless these symptoms. and fopr symptomatic relief you may use laxatives and mild medication like tablet amytrityline 2-3 times daily for a few weeks.

A friend of mine used to use Crystal Meth , this was a few years ago, but now she had a terrible digestive tract disease with many bloody stools, fistulas, a lot of pain,a rash I think the spots drain like maybe surface fistulas abdominal bloating , she cannot eat without having immediate diarrhea , is in a lot of pain. It all sounds like Crohn s disease but it isn t. She has had non stop changing diagnoses, IBS , is one -something to do with the pancreas is another, this has been going on for about 7 years, she is receiving no medications, She is super stressed out, was taken to a hospital after a seizure recently, the ambulance took her to the wrong one, where she was giving narcotics that turned up in a test, and she couldn t get the paper work from the other hospital to proove that she was misusing narcotics, another instance her potassium was so low that she could not be woken up, and with narcotics and xanex in her system they thought it was an over does, But it happens to her when her potassium gets low, this was also a different hospital she was taken to, so now she can not get any pain medicines or stress relievers that she needs badly - she lost her husband in the summer and they have a 11 year old child together and she remains curled up in a ball of pain, crying most of the time. I try to do internet research and come up with nothing although it does represent the most severe case of IBS I have ever heard of, and closely to crohn s disease which I believe runs in her family. So, I believe she has been red-flagged, and I don t know how long this 40 year old may go on with such a life. It is awful to witness. I am just a friend on disability , I do not have the money to pay for any advise, I am helping (trying) at no cost - will any body be willing to also help without reiceiving payment? I am a big humanitarian, - anyone else out there that might be one to? if so, I will leave this page and hopefully might get some kind of lead in my email, like a present!? :) It would be very kind.

I am still dealing with mid to lower abdominal pain which started in June 2012. I have seen doctors and had lots of tests, but so far no diagnosis. The pain was sporadic until December 2013. Then it became more intense - more painful and more often. Now it s almost constant. I have had issues with constipation for years due to my need to take narcotic medication for chronic pain (reflex sympathetic dystrophy, lymphedema, arthritis, etc.) In 12/13 my medication was changed and the pain in my abdomen became my new chronic pain, overtaking the other pain, which while still there, is not as prominent. My pain medication has been adjusted, but the pain remains. While I was being tested to find what was causing the stomach/abdomen pain I was diagnosed with leukemia (CCL) which apparently is not related. The question is what is causing my pain? Stress makes it worse, and while constipation may be an issue, the pain became worse after my colonoscopy & endoscopy. I have also had a CT Scan, PET Scan, intestine scan, can t have a MRI due to a spinal cord implant. So far these things have also been ruled out, IBS, hernia, no vaginal issues, gastritis. My doctor thinks it might be muscle spasms. I have been keeping a food diary and I have not found any discernible patterns or any clues. Could it be some sort of food or substance allergy? HELP

Hello. I have had lower abdominal pain for the past few days and I am not sure why. It feels like period cramps. I had unprotected sex about five days ago but I am on contraceptives so chances of pregnancy are quite low. I am known to have stomach problems, possibly IBS. I am not sure if I should go to the doctor or wait until this pain goes away on its own. Thank you

Dear Sir,

My mother has been suffering from Kidney disease. She never had any problem with BP or Blood Sugar but he has been declared to have bilateral renal parenchyma disease since 2005.

She is taking a calculated diet limiting the salt content in the food to 3 gm/day. The recent blood test conducted (2 months back) has reported bad results and the details are listed below:-

Creatinine - 7.5

Hemoglobin - 8.1

Blood Sugar (Fasting) 88 mg/DL

Urea - 150

Sodium - 131

Potassium - 4.2

What should be the next step? Is kidney transplantation the only choice? When/where should it be done? Is it getting very worse or we still have some time to go for the transplantation?

Please help.

Thanks, Kunal

Hello, about 13 days ago I drank alot of alcochol and I have been dizzy with a slight headache since then. I have been to the doctor he said it is probably liver intoxication, that it will go away, that was a week ago. I did a bunch of blood tests everything seems normal accept my hep B anti hps was 93. This happened about 2 months ago as well, the doc gave me, b6 dramin (portuguese), which I took for a week and the dizzyness went away. Any clue what it could be? Is this normal because of alcohol consumption? I have drank alot in the past years, never had this happen before.
