As you have not been clinically examined., only Differential Diagnosis can be given at this stage.,
A) Dyspepsia;-Due to consumption of Non Fibre containing sticky and soft diet

C)Urolithiasis;-Demonstration of Oxalaturia /RBCs in Urine/ USG confirmation will ascertain the Diagnosis.
D)Spasmodic Dysmenorhoea;-During menses in unmarried girls Uterine congestion leads to Spasmodic Dismenorrhoea. USG Pelvis will reveal the exact reason.
