It started in June with some pain in my lower

It started in June with some pain in my lower right jaw that started out as mind and gradually progressed. In July I got into my dentist where they xrayed and determined that I needed three filings in three teeth. After these were done the dentist thought that perhaps if symptoms didn't improve that one tooth might require a root canal. After a couple of weeks the jaw pain became very intense and I returned to the dentist. I took a course of antibiotics as I was having sinus issues as well. Upon inspection it appeared as if the root canal would need to be done on a tooth other than the one the dentist had thought prior. I had the root canal done (extremely painful). (Oh, after the initial fillings, I started having pain in my top right bicuspid as well) The pain subsided for only a day or so and returned. I returned to the dentist where she adjusted the bite on the right side after taking xrays of both upper and lower spots. This was two days ago. This morning I woke with no jaw or tooth pain but as I drove into work I had stabbing pain in both upper and lower jaw/teeth. This has continued throughout the day (eating or drinking only slightly affected this). I have been having a slight cloudy discharge and heaviness in the right face and ear. Help, please!

Hello. I m 16 years old, female, 5 6 , and 210lb. I ve been having pain in my right, lower back since June 3, 2014 and it feels like it s getting worse. Back pain has never happened to me before. That was when I noticed it was really hurting and that was the first time it s hurt that badly. I ve never had back pain like this before and I fully understand that my weight may be a factor. I ve been taking over the counter pain killers like ibuprofen for about a month every night and they don t feel like they re working. Recently, I ve been feeling the ache in my right leg and I m starting to get really worried. If you, have an idea to why this might be happening, please let me know so I can see my family doctor.

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
