Regular bloating, enlarged belly, pain on left side during sex, under severe stress, chronic back pain. What could be wrong?

i suffer from extreme bloatedness, suffer all day everyday with it. no matter what weight i am/was i always look heavily pregnant. i sometimes have severe pain on my left side during sex, the pain is in the area over my hip and is a very internal pain. i have alot of stress in my life and go through stages of depression very regularly. my diet isnt super but it isnt over bad either, i am quite sedentary as i have had chronic back pain since i was 17 or so, it makes running/exercising very difficult. thought it might be IBS but i dont suffer from constipation or diarrhea . any ideas as to what is wrong with me as i know it is not normal, thanks.

General Surgeon 's  Response

I have read your query and here is my advise.

* As per my surgical experience, the deep pain over left after sex, include nerve compression via pelvic structures most likely.

* Regular bloating in absence of constipation or diarrhea, can be related to functional indigestion, irritable bowel syndrome, enzyme insufficiency or else.

* CT scan of the abdomen & pelvis would be my first choice if you were my OPD consultation patient.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I was referred to smoking medical marijuana for my chronic back pain but something bad happens when I smoke it. I am curious if it is some kind of allergy or something. Once I take a big hit my whole body feels cold under the skin and it feels like something is flowing thru my body. Then my mouth and eyes start to hurt.. my eyes burn and my mouth feels like the nerves become very sensitive to the touch. My tongue touching my teeth or gums is VERY VERY uncomfortable. My vision also becomes white and fuzzy. I can be around it when other people are smoking no problem... actually the contact high is awesome lol. Also I can get it on my skin without any reaction. There were 2 times I smoked and nothing bad happened and it really did work EXCELLENT for my back and my stress. What could be wrong?

I have a pain that started on my left side and has slowly moved into my hip and lower back. I have chronic back pain that has become hard to live with. It seems more like muscle pain than spinal pain. I also have chronic heartburn and loose stool. Could something be wrong?

I have never done this before? I have chronic back pain ever since 1998 when I was T-boned by a drunk driver when my family and I went to the air and sea show in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. I had really great insurance, unfortunately, my company went under when the economy went down in 2008. Needless to say, I was with my company for over 16 years and when they shut their doors my whole life took a turn for the worst! I had to work wherever the unemployment office would send me which were jobs that were paying nothing compared to what I was making and would eventually lay me off when it was time for the probation to be over so that they would not have to pay for my benefits! They actually can get away with that in Florida! I have been bounced around so many jobs that it s not even funny! At one job I fell in the rain on one step! Can you believe that, I slipped on one step and I saw god when the corner of that step hit my right side but I was being a trooper and eventually left at 3:00 p.m. cause I could not take the pain any longer! I ve been out of work since they eventually I got laid off and am in the process of applying for Social Security Benefits. I am 58 years old and I have been to a pain management doctor which only takes cash payments which are now up to $240 every 28 days (he doesn t give refills) I couldn t afford him anymore but I am going crazy with this pain. He would prescribe to me Lorcets 10/625 (which generic is hydrocodone/acetamin) then reduced it to 10/325, gabepentin, flexiral, valium, adderrall. I had to stop seeing him, his office was like something out of a weird movie where you see the zombies come out! Anyway, I couldn t afford him anymore but I still suffer from this pain, I have herniated, bulging discs in my back. I have the MRI that states such. I cannot take this pain anymore, I am truly suffering, sometimes I get really bad thoughts because of this pain! I take extra strength tylenols like candy and they make my stomach so sick and they don t do the job cause after taking the prescribed medication, this is like eating candy. Is there anything that you can do to help me with my pain? Like I mentioned before, I have never done anything like this on line and I so hope that one of you doctors can help me? Thank you. Oh by the way, would you be able to prescribe me with something for this horrible pain?
