Stomach pain that only hurts occasionally

I have a pain in my lower right abdomen that only hurts occasionally. It hurts when I go to sit down or when I first stand up. Sometimes the pain feels like it moves to my side and lower back. It is not a constant pain, and it is not a severe pain. Its more like a twinge, when moving a certain way. I have no nausea or fever or any other symptom. I have felt this pain since Sunday. Just wondering if I pulled something, or if its somethin else.

There are two possibilities of your pain.
You may have acute or sub acute appendicitis.

Hi! For the past few months I have had some stomach problems. Every time I eat, I can NOT make it through a meal. My stomach starts cramping very bad, and I have to rush to a bathroom. I have only been eating when I get home b/c I don t want it to interrupt my work. I have recently just stopped taking the prescription drug Phentermine (37.8) and even during those few months occasionally I would experience these symptoms. But for the last few days it has been NON STOP. And I am miserable, and nervous about becoming dehydrated. I am sure I already am, b/c EVERYTHING upsets my stomach. Can you help me?

I don t know what I ate but my stomach hurts in a weird pattern. This happen just 3-2 days ago. After I finish going to the washroom my pee has some weird looking brown dots. I only get that problem after my stomach hurts, usually when I pee nothing comes out. Am I peeing out something important in my body?

Hello, My wife had cold and cough for the last 4 days and I visited a Pulmonologist. He prescribed some tablets and also a nasal spray. She takes nebulization for 3-4 times a day(duolin ). She was an Astma patient in childhood.
Since yesterday, she is having unbearable stomach ache and pain around the umbilical cord region on abdomen and we rushed her to hospital. They conducted a Chest X Ray and Scan on the pelvic region. Both came out as normal. No specialist were available yesterday and hence we had to come back.
She had about 3-4 instances of vomitting in the last 2 days.

She was operated earlier for appendicitis and stones in the gall bladder.

She will be visiting an Gasteroenterologist today or tomm.
Do you have any advise on the next course of action.

Hi,

I am 19 year old caucasin female, 68inches, 161 lbs. In the last two years I have gotten sick often and think there has to be a conncetion between some of it. I am a college student from poverty level familys so I don't really have insuracne to get testing done.



In Nov 2009 (1.5 years ago) I got pneumonia, Jan 2010, an appendicitis, diagnosed with March 2010 H. pylori. In June I went to Arizona and California I did not tan at all. I went for a walk with a Caribbean, African and Native American Friend. They all got much darker but I didn't even though I didn't use sunscreen. July 2010, bad sinus infection, concussion (injury caused). Aug stomach virus? In Sept blood work was done and I was extremely Vit D deficient. So started taking Vit D and a Multi Vit. In Sept they diagnosed me with a kidney infection



Since November 2010, I have had colitis. There is pretty regularly blood in my stool which is normal texture. There is colon and abdominal pain associated with this. After an excretion it is worse. Especially during my periods the pain seems to be worse. I am often naseua or at least lack an appetite.

I am not anemic, C. Diff, parasites and an inflammatory blood test were negative. They suggested I tried going gluten free but it didnt seem to help

Since February Ive been getting chills, night sweats and occasionally fevers.

In March I fainted. We were talking about phlebotomy but Ive always found blood intersting. The next few days I know my bp was low like 95/60.

In april I started having heart palpations. My resting heart rate would range 120-58 but typically 100+. My bp range anywhere 144/103 to 120/56 to 112/82. My ekg look fine

The beginning of May my urine would be sometimes a burnt color but then an hour later it may be clear or sometimes it would be a greenish color. I typically drink 2 L of water per day. my eating habits havent changed. Three weeks later, I started getting intermediate flank pain. There was blood in the urine but everything else was fine. The doctors are assuming I have kidney stones.

I am waiting to hear from a free/probono specialist to have a colonoscopy done to hopefully determine the colitis source. But ive been waiting since march.

If you could think of anything that might possibly help me figure out what the heck is wrong with me I would be grateful.

Thanks have a great day!
