I have a lot of abdominal pain one side,up near the ribs and lower down in the pelvic region?

I have a lot of abdominal pain one side,up near the ribs and lower down in the pelvic region,especially when I pass urine,this is very painful.
I had a operation to repair a prolapse 5 weeks ago.
I had a catheter in for 5 days after
After it was taken out I had a water infection,I was given some antibiotics,they didn’t work,so they prescribed some others as there were high white blood cells in the urine.before the abiotic were finished I went back to the doctors as I still did not feel right,there were still high white blood cells in the urine.bloods were done,nothing was found.i was still in pain so contacted them again,still had high white blood cells in urine,but still wasn’t given anything,bloods were repeated again,but said no sign of infection,although I was still in pain when urinating. I am now getting throbbing pain the other side of my abdomen,just under my ribs and getting pain on the backs of my legs

Concerned about my daughter’s recent blood work?

Concerned about my daughter’s recent blood work. My daughter is Caucasian, 7 years old, about 50″ tall, and 54 lbs. She is taking Vyvanse 20mg for ADHD and Zarontin for CAE. She just started the Zarontin early February. Recently she hasn’t been sleeping well. She has swollen lymph nodes on her neck (one has been there for a while, and she is due for an Ultra Sound of neck soon). Her PCP did some blood work yesterday, and some of the results make me wonder what is going on with me baby? Today she was sleepy most of the day.
The numbers that have me the most concerned are:
ANC (absolute Neutrophil count) – 1.0 Low
WBC (White Blood Cell) – 2.6 Low [yet was 4.8 three weeks ago] -what can cause this drop?
Globulin 1.9 Low
Monocyte 19.0% High

What can cause this deviation from the normal ranges? and the big drop in WBC?

I had a minor heart attack/myocardial infarction?

Hi, I am a 25 year old male. I have been very fatigued for about a week and having numbness in my left arm and chest pain and shortness of breath. About three days ago I felt like I was going to pass out. I had time to go to a urgent care today and they advised going to the ER. The ER did a EKG and said they think I had a minor heart attack/myocardial infarction. My chest X-ray and cardiac enzymes were normal so they said I am stable now and can return to normal activity but to follow up with a cardiologist. Is this correct or is the EKG just affected by being nervous about being in the ER
