I have a burning pain in pelvic, lower abdomen & intestines?

Burning pain in pelvic, lower abdomen & intestines. No fever
I’m experiencing burning pain in the pelvic area for the last couple of months as well as in the very low abdomen area, and lower back, bladder and intestines. It improves when I’m up but gets worse when I’m sleeping. It also improves after a bowel movement or when I empty my bladder but I don’t have a sense of urgency to urinate. I had a hysterectomy (everything) removed years ago so can’t say it’s anything like that. It feels like fire in all the areas described. I’m having a hard time sleeping and feeling tired as a result I have not had a fever. I moved here about 4 months ago and have not found a doctor. 46 Female



I am facing breathing difficulties for last 1 year, my doctors can’t identify problem?

I am 27 years old boy. I am facing breathing difficulties for last 1 year. Pressure and tightness on left and middle chest. Discomfort on upper back and neck. If I sit on chair I can not keep my spine straight, feel very weak. Also after walking some distance feel breathing difficulty and chest pressure. I have visited chest specialist, cardiologist. I have done some test like chest xrays, ECG, ECHO Color, Blood test. All reports are ok. Done MRI of spine. Report comes with disk bulge in c4-c5 level. Others are ok. I also visited physical medicine specialist and he gave me Brufen SR tablets and some anti depression tablets. I have little chest pain not much. But discomfort on back and chest and breathing difficulty making my life very miserable. Sometimes I feel very awkward like 1 or 2 kicks(bits or vibration like for 1 or 2 seconds) on middle of my upper chest which feels like I am getting heart attack. When I hear any bad news and then feel very bad on my left chest.
I am a software engineer and I can not work effectively in my office. Please advice me what I have to do and what is causing this problems.
Thanks in advance.



I broke my collarbone back in 2009, my chest seems to have become a bit deformed since the incident?

Hi there, I broke my collarbone back in 2009 when a girl tackled me onto my side onto ice. I passed out so I’m not entirely sure how I fell, but I know I fell on my shoulder hard and must have hit my head as well. My collarbone broke in 3 spots on my right side. I was 13 at the time so doctors freaked me out a lot, but they still kind of do. Enough for me not to want to visit the doctors regarding this issue a least.

Anyways, my chest seems to have become a bit deformed since the incident. From my collarbone down to between my breast, the centre of my chest protrudes enough that it makes my breasts push downwards and outwards a bit. It’s not painful at all unless I lay on my stomach and have pressure on my chest for too long, but it’s definitely not something I’d like to deal with the rest of my life. I was wondering if anything could maybe be done without surgery, like a posture sling or compression on the chest of some sort… I tried to take a photo but without completely exposing myself, it’s very hard to show what I mean. It’s like a pigeon chest, but what I’ve noticed about pigeon chests is that it seems to be lower and not start by the collarbone, and that it then sinks in as well as protrude, which mine does not.



My husband is 42y/o Hx. of stroke 1 year ago. He awakened yesterday complaining of heaviness to his left arm?

My husband is 42y/o Hx. of stroke 1 year ago. He awakened yesterday complaining of heaviness to his left arm. As the day went his stated that he heaviness subsided. Since then stroke he still has weakness is his left arm and dexterity issues to his left hand. Today I noticed that his arm appeared more “flopping” just appeared to hang more. I asked him to open and close his hand and there were definite changes. But they would come and go. He is tired and sleepy. I know about stroke fatigue and I am an RN. I have assessed him head to toe and I cannot find any other symptoms indicating another stroke or TIA. It appears he is having a set back and that has not happened before. Is this a common occurrence or do I need to be worried? Please help.

I had my gallbladder removed in April of 2015, I am still having severe pain?

I am a 46 year old female. I had my gallbladder removed in April of 2015. The doctor said it was not working. I am still having severe pain, that I have to go to the ER. What is going on? Is there a medical term used for this type of condition? I had the scope done in February, and nothing showed up but two polyps and both were benign. I am really getting scared because nothing has been found. The last visit to the ER, they did blood work. Would the blood work have shown if I have cancer or not, or is there a certain test they have to do to check for cancer? Also my blood pressure was up and my heart rate was 138. Please help!

I was hospitalized a month ago for a severe kidney infection, nothing helped, What should I do next?

I am a female. I was hospitalized a month ago for a severe kidney infection for a week and a half. As soon as I got off the antibiotics I started having symptoms again except no fever. The pain is worse than the last time at my low back at my kidneys, upper left side of my tummy and at my bladder. It is very painful to use the bathroom worse than the last time and my urine is dark yellow and smelly. Every time I eat, my body rejects everything I put in my body such as foods and liquids and even medication. The vomiting is so severe that I will go on for 10 minutes straight. I went to my primary doctor and they said I had a UTI and she gave me antibiotics and because of the severe pain I was in, she ordered a CT scan of my kidneys and found something unknown was on my kidneys and they were afraid it was a cyst or a abscess and gave me a kidney ultrasound but when she sent me to the urologist at my local hospital the same day, they said I had no UTI and everything was fine on my kidneys. My kidneys looked the same as the last time I was in the hospital. He said my pain may be because of my digestive system and he didn’t know why I was in so much pain and it was out of his profession basically and sent me over to the emergency department for pain medication. But the nurse practitioner told me it was my muscles and gave me muscle relaxers. I was having severe vomiting and severe pain but they discharged me after giving me only basically tyneol. I tried telling them it didn’t help but they let me go regardless of my cries for help. I was still in agonizing pain and still having severe vomiting. I took a UTI test strip yesterday and I tested positive for a infection. The pain is getting worse by the day. What should I do next?

I received a urethral bulking procedure with the Coaptite injectable implant, now in constant pain, doctors don’t know why?

On February 8th, 2017, I received a urethral bulking procedure with the Coaptite injectable implant. That evening I could only drip pee, but not empty my bladder fully. I was screaming in pain overnight and the next morning my husband took me to the hospital where they drained 2 liters off the bladder. I was sent home and told that I would completely recover. Since then I have suffered from severe urgency, stinging, burning, frequency, pelvic pain and some incontinence. I have seen a urogynecologist, a gynecologist, a urologist, a pain specialist, an acupuncturist, and now I am seeing a pelvic floor physical therapist and receiving weekly treatments of percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation, PTNS. Over these 3 months, my condition has worsened, not improved. None of the doctors I have consulted understand why this happened to me, and do not know how to treat it. At 66, I am/was an elite athlete, extremely active, babysitting grandchildren, and had lots of energy. Today, I spend most of my time in bed due to the extreme discomfort of the pelvic floor pain and the severe urgency. I am taking myrbetriq for the pain, but do not think that it is helping and taking several antidepressants. I wonder what more can be done to alleviate these symptoms, if not get rid of them completely. I do not understand what could be causing these horrific sensations.



I had a lumbar laminectomy / discectomy on the L5-S1 around 8-9 months ago for some pretty painful sciatica?

I had a lumbar laminectomy / discectomy on the L5-S1 around 8-9 months ago for some pretty painful sciatica shooting down my left leg from my gluteal region. I was doing pretty well until last week, and noticed that I had some sensitivity behind my outer left knee. The sensitivity is not debilitating, but really notable. Could I have possibly re-herniated? or can this be corrected? I have not had any pain yet from my gluteal region nor my lower back.

I have just started my gabapentin treatment again, I also had an occurrence today when I coughed and my upper left gluteal region issued me some sharp pain. Am I experiencing a recurrence of a herniated disc again?



I have had spine problems since an accident in 1992?

I have had spine problems since an accident in 1992 when I hit my head on low door way twisted my head fell with my shoulders on hard floor and also broke my tibia and fibia.

The symptoms after that started were wide and varied I have been bedridden for last 3 years in chronic pain.

I beleive when I had the accident it caused problems around T1 possibly prolapsed disc. The symptoms from this pain down sides stomach and groin pain. My neck and upper back have basically ceased up. I get loud cracking in my head heard by me and if loud crack others in room. I have just been diagnosed with problem at C3 nothing about T1.
I assume when you have a prolapsed disc at this level T1 it is generally left.
I have just managed to sort the muscles out and pain downwards has stopped.. When you have sciatic pain it can stop and start again years later. I believe with thoracic referred pain the problem continues as this area does not move. I by any chance it moves and the pain stops is there any chance it will stay ok similar to when sciatica goes.



My 14 1/2 year old daughter has been getting a little bruise looking purplish rash on her earlobe for about a year?

Hello all. I am very worried. My 14 1/2 year old daughter has been getting a little bruise looking purplish rash on her earlobe for about a year. It lasts a few days then goes away completely. It returns every other week, sometimes once a month. I mentioned it to her doctor last year, and he did a cbc, and said it was normal, no need to worry. This week, she had a small one on her face, so I took her to the doctor. They ran a bunch of blood tests. CBC w/diffential, Metabolic panel, Bleeding time, PTT, antinuclear. The doctor said everything looks good, that it is idiopathic, but not ITP because her platelets are NOT low. I was worried about lieukemia. That is why I took her. I want to believe that these things just happen, can you please shed light on this? Please help me, I am so scared. during visit before bloodwork , doctors called it petechiae or purpura, on the internet it was all bad and scary reasons for these. Can these really happen for no reason? They told me no treatment needed.
