Obesity, on strict diet, pain on right side of waist and inside arm, blood in stool

I have been on a very strict diet for the last two months. I went from 300 pounds to 269. (I take mega vitamins while I am dieting.)
I have been having a pain on the right side of my waist, below the waist, and it's a sharp pain.
It is NOT a back pain like sciatica....

I noticed blood in my stool/urine on Saturday evening and again this evening.
I have NEVER had any stone problems or health issues except for obesity.

I have also been having a pain in the inside portion of my arm, in front of the elbow.

I'm wondering if this is coincidental or something that I'm not familiar with ???

Hello .
Thsnks for your query . The pain that you are experiencing near your waist is probably suggestive of renal stones . I would suggest you to get a ultrasound abdomen done and depending on the size of the stone it can be treated conservatively or may require surgery .
The blood in stools is probably suggestive of acute / chronic anal fissure or Hemorrhoids . This can be evaluated by a proctoscope . I would suggest you to consult a surgeon and consume plenty of fluids , fibers in the diet and use xylocaine ointment along with sitz bath thrice a week after every motions for a week .
The pain below your arm could indicate a sprain . I would suggest you to get an X ray of the forearm involved and consult an orthopedician and use painkillers to relieve the pain .
Thank you
