Suggest treatment for chronic abdominal pain

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here...

I am a healthy 30 year old woman with chronic pelvic/abdominal pain for 4 months and recent blood work showed my WBC is 12,500 and my CRP level is 42. My next step is a ct scan of my abdomen and pelvis. What are they possibly looking for?

Thanks for your query.
They are possibly looking for the following:
-PID- Pelvic Inflammatory Disease.
-Problems related to the uterus, tubes and ovaries like Salpingitis, TO mass.
-Cystitis and UTI.
-Enteritis, pelvis peritonitis by say tuberculosis
-Appendicitis in pelvis position.
-Or any inflammatory disease that has raised your WBC and CRP.

Hope CT scan helps you and your Doctors to find the cause. and you get a proper treatment.
