hello,
you have mentioned it happened after going to beach.have u met any truma or injury or any kind of insect bite. if its due to injury then you can take some analgesic tab like diclofenac 50 mg bd(please ensure that u r not allergic to diclofenac).you can give heat therapy to that area. again you have to meet a orthopedician.he will cmpletely examine that area and give u medications.ther may be some other pathology.

Gallstone problems Hi! I found out last year that I have gallstones and suffer from acid reflux. The doctor I went to put me on dicyclomine for the acid reflux but nothing for the gallstones.They only bother me once in a blue moon but when they do, it get s pretty bad. What are some things that I can do to prevent being in pain until I can have surgery to get them removed? Are there any over-the-counter meds I can take for the pain? I m 22, about 5 1, female, and weight about 200 lbs. I take pepogest to help with acid reflux but I need something for the gallstones. I heard you can pass them but as far as I know, I haven t passed any yet. What can I do about? Help please?!? Thank you

I have a 4 cm gallstone. Should it be taken out if I don t have many of the usual symptoms. I am 65 and my dr. says that I have probably had it a long time. I don t hurt when I eat a fatty meal or a big meal. Right now I keep having a pain just about the area of my right bottom rib cage. It has been there for about 4 months. I weigh 150 pounds and am female.

I have been suffering from diarrhea , stomach pain, severe chills, and hot flashes for more than a year now. I ve had virtually every test available, even had my gall bladder removed.

I had a c-section 10 months ago. About three months ago I was having weak, fatigue , constipation, severe bloating , nausea, and urge to urinate. Had cat scan and all blood work came back fine. However they took my gallbladder out just cause they saw stones. I was then sent to my OB and she did exam and ultra sound of uterus and all was fine. At that time I was put on Metronidazole and began to feel normal. Now two months later after my period ended a few days later I had they symptoms appear again. Some days are worse than others.This time I also formed thrush in my mouth, and I have had brown stringy discharge for 8 days. It may help to know that in the last 28 months I have had 2 c sections and a gallbladder removed. I am at a total loss. I have been healthy my entire life. I am also 41 years old. Thank you for your time.

I have white bumps in my butt crack at the top. I also have a burning sensation at the base of my spine . I just had a hida scan performed last Wednesday due to upper right pain to check gall bladder function. I had bowel movements on Saturday that were green indicating the radiation was expelled. It was in diarrhea form and I m concerned it may have splashed back on my skin. Could this be the cause of my symptoms? Can this be a form of radiation burn? I am stressed over the scan and the use of the radiation. I am concerned of impact of the radiation on my body in conjunction with other CT Scans I ve had in the past.
