    What causes pain in abdomen accompanied by nausea and lack of appetite?

abdominal pain
I am a 24 year old female. I am 5'0" and weigh approx 122 pounds. I have pain and pressure in my right lower abdomen. This is accompanied by nausea, lack of appetite and problems passing a stool (which is the newest symptom). This is gone on for a few days and has not seemed to get better. On fact the pain and pressure have I only gotten worse. The pressure seems to get worse if I sit or walk up the stairs. I do make sure o am eating even though I don't feel like it. also am keeping hydrated. I do have asthma and am on pro air as needed. I am also on Mirena for birth control.

Hi ! Good evening. I am Dr Shareef answering your query.

The symptoms you have described could be due to a mild form of appendicitis, or a chronic ectopic (using birth control pills are never a 100 % guarantee against a pregnancy. If I were your doctor, I would advise you for a personal clinical examination, followed by some blood tests like complete blood count, a serum HCG, a urine test (both routine and culture sensitivity), followed possibly by an ultrasound of abdomen to rule out any pelvic disease/pregnancy/ureteric calculi. A gyneacological examination might also be advised if need be. Further treatment would depend on the results of the clinical examination and relevant investigations. However, I would advise you to visit the emergency room of your nearest hospital to avoid any further delay in treatment.

I hope this information would help you in discussing with your family physician/treating doctor in further management of your problem. Please do not hesitate to ask in case of any further doubts.
Thanks for choosing health care magic to clear doubts on your health problems. Wishing you an early recovery. Dr Shareef.
