Suggest treatment for stomach complaint

Hi, I am a 22 year old female. I have been having sharp, stabbing pain a few inches in from my hip bones on both sides which is occupanied by a throbbing pain throughout my entire abdomen. This has been happening AT LEAST once a week for a few months. The pain is temporarily relieved by having a bowel movement (which is a watery diarrhea) and it is a urgent thing. I have also gained 10 lbs in a 1 and 1/2 months, and I have not changed my eating habits (I eat healthy). Thanks.

Hello,

Vomiting is a symptom that usually occurs secondary to a primary cause which in your sister's can be due to one of the following reasons as per the history that you have provided about her:
-Intestinal obstruction due to the ruptured ovarian cyst.
-Pathology related to inflammation like appendicitis, diverticulitis, inflamed lymph node masses and so on. It can be diagnosed by the following:
-Ultrasonography of the abdomen.
-X-ray of the abdomen in standing position.
-Tests of stool, blood, and urine.
-CT scan of abdomen if needed. An opinion of a gastroenterologist and other specialists as per the reports of investigations so that a proper diagnosis can be done for proper management.
-Surgical correction if a surgical cause is found.
-Medicines as per the final diagnosis to get a possible cure.
-If all the reports are within normal limits then the cause may be related to functional problems.
-Jaundice and renal disease need to be sought after as a cause of vomiting. Proper management of the urinary case must be done.


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


Regards,
Dr. T Chandrakant
