I previously had this pain I am having now and

I previously had this pain I am having now and I went to the hospital and they diagnosed me with gastritis. I was taking medication for the pain, then stopped. I started with the pain 2 days ago. Today its been a struggle. I am taking the medication again but its not helping. I suddenly got diarrhea this afternoon. When I breath it hurts that location. Its not abdominal pain to me. Its right under my rib cage to the left. If I sit my hand flat right under my breast that's where it hurts. Any suggestions on what I need to do next?

Hi, took Levonele one step morning after pill a week and a half ago. After nearly a week I started to bleed after the first time I had sex since I took the MAP. I also had abdominal pains for a couple of days. Since then it is quite painful when I urinate. I stopped bleeding after about five days. Is the abdominal pain and bleeding connected with the pain when I urinate? I was planning to get tested for STD s anyway-am worried it might be a symptom of herpes. Thank you. Rita, 26, 175 lb, 5 6 . No previous medical issues whatsoever.

Hi I constantly suffer from what I think is cystitis. I have lower abdominal and back pain, have pain when urinating. I have been tested for uti but the test this time is negative though I have suffered from uti s on previous occasions already in the last year. I have been to the doctor and have had a scan to check my bladder and kidneys. The scan results came back fine; that I am emptying my bladders normally. This problem is starting to effect and take over my life. I used to an energetic and bubbly person, but im getting tired, tearful and disheartened that I cant seem to sort this daily problem out. I have a good healthy diet and drink plenty of water a day. I have the urgency to get up in the night too. I drink cranberry juice, take actimel every day. What advice do you have.

I am a 150 lb. 50 yr. old woman with no previous gastro concerns, no daily meds, a daily antioxidant supplement with a multivite w/iron, daily diet with variety of fruits & veggies, milk, yogurt, chicken, fish, beef, whole grains, & beans with very little processed food, no food allergies. Lifelong exerciser, presently in pool 2x - 3x a week, but sedentary lifestyle past decade due to spinal injuries. Developed bouts of severe abdominal pain and GI distress with heartburn & reflux this year. Suspected two pain meds used occasionally for chronic back and neck pain (Percocet & Fiorinal) but discovered each time I eat pistachios, even just 10 or 12, I get the same horrible GI distress. No itching or hives or other allergic-type symptoms. Is this considered an allergy? Is there a name for it, the way that gluten intolerance is called Celiac Sprue Disease or wheat allergy ???
