I m really worried. I;m a 15 year old female. I have exercise induced asthma . Recently I ve haven;t been able to go to the toilet properly, I can pee fine but I think I may be constipated. However I worried because I also have lower back pain and stomach pain. I also have Urinary incontinence . I get headaches more often even though I drink quite a lot of water and I feel extremely tired, all the time. I m wondering what is wrong with me :)

Hello Dr Samuel I have been diagonosed with a anterier and posterior prolapse (mild) but have been having urinary incontinence problems and following tests have a small significant over active bladder .

I am a usually healthy 33 yr old mother of three. Lately I ve had several medical issues bothering me. I have blood in my stools , wbc s in my urine (with no infection), urinary incontinence (to the point of bed wetting ), high blood pressure and swelling in my hands, feet and face. I was diagnosed with narcolepsy a few yrs ago so the fatigue isn t new but it s become a lot worse. I m getting scheduled for a CT tomorrow I m just worried what they re gonna find. Could all these symptoms be related? If so, does it sound like cancer?

Hi wooks. I dont think you should worry because you are young and every of your symptoms in most cases has benign cause.
First, blood in stool usually means that you have hemmorhoids, anal fissurae, poylps or angiodysplasie. It can be sign of colon cancer but this is not the first thing to think...
