What causes abdominal pain and bloating?

My abdomen hurts ( aches) like I'm having my period...I'm not - I'm 72! Bloating - urine frequency, checked for UTI but no, Did not screen for a yeast infection. Had a CT to rule out that my breast cancer metastized to my bladder. What's wrong??? I go to the doctor again tomorrow.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

It is the urinary tract infection and it may not be anything else, because urinary tract (UTI) is very common in female and much challenging, the ideal way to treat this condition is to choose the sensitive antibiotic and it can only possible with the help of culture sensitivity test or urine, some time it may not be the infection but may cause the inflammatory condition of bladder wall and that may also cause the symptoms of pain, cystoscopy can be thought to rule out the this, till then I would suggest to try Disodium hydrogen citrate liquid, it need to be taken with lot of water it is nothing but the urine alkalizer, stop worrying it may not be any thing serious.

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

Last night I had a sever pain in my right abdomen right around my navel. I couldn t sit or stand there was no comfortable position to be in. The pain would be constant and unbearable for about 30 minutes and then it would get less intense. I could still tell there was pain there but I could walk and talk. At times I felt feverish, but never took my temperature. I experienced chills and sweating. I never vomited but sat over the toilet feeling like I was going to. The pain lasted for about 7 hours like this. When the pain wasn t unbearable I would fall asleep only to be woke back up 30 minutes to and hour later in tremendous pain. This also happened about a week ago, the pain was just as bad but it only lasted for an hour or two. Any idea what could be causing this?
