Conditions with symptom: 'abdomen'
Hi Im 23. 2 months ago I had intermittent Diarrhea and pain all over my abdomen. The diarrhea stopped, but since then the pain in my abdomen when I eat is unbearable at times, and I move my bowels between 2 and 5 times per day. I am extremely exhausted all the time, and my abdomen gets very distended and painful. Before this, I had gastritis and acid reflux in my stomach, and take acid inhibitors every day. My GP tried anti biotics at first, which didnt make a difference. He referred me then for a colonoscopy, but the waiting list is 8 months and I can barely function or go to work because of the pain, exhaustion, and frequesnt trips to the toilet. It doesnt seem to matter what I eat, whether its vegetable soup or a burger, the pain an need to go to the toilet seems the same. someone please help me!
this sounds very much like ibs to me?
Hello before it gets any worse i suggest you go get it seen by a doctor you may have ciatica which effects your lower abdomen
I'm 21 I got diagnosed with endometriosis 2 years ago. I have been seen by a gynaecologist and now on the mirena coil. However I still have a lot of symptoms I am worried about.. I have: very painful sex; irregular bleeding; a constant horrible discharge (not the normal female one); swelling to my abdomen; a very tender abdomen; constant pain. I constantly get checks for sti's even though I have been with my partner for 3 years, I keep getting refused when I ask for a smear even though I have more than one symptom for female cancers. I just want to be taken seriously and don't feel like I am because of my age and the fact I have a child
My boyfriend has been suffering from severe pain in his lower abdomen for quite a few months now. It is so bad that he can't move sometimes. He also has swelling in his penis and pain when ejaculating on occasion. He also complains about a pain in his right testicle. He is only 18 and every urine test and STI test has come back negative. Recently he also suffers the pain in his lower abdomen after drinking alcohol. I would just like to know if these sympotoms are common of prostitis. If anyone could give me any feedback I'd be grateful. Thanks

I suffered from heavy, irregular periods. Since going on the implant this has all stopped. I regularly get pain & have often been to the doctors. I was diagnosed with a cyst on each ovary 4cm each. I have experienced dull pain in the lower abdomen with a fullness feeling, frequent need to urinate, feeling very nauseous. I went to the doctor who thought it was a uti- this was negative, when I queried my cysts this was dismissed. Can cysts been diagnosed through simply feeling the abdomen? Why is it so difficult to be rescanned? Also I have been told I have scar tissue on my bowel, can this be linked to endemetreosis? And misdiagnosed as pcos?
Im 21 and since february this year ive had 10 utis, that, means i've pretty much always got one. they come back about a week our two after antibiotics. I.get pains in my lower back, lower abdomen and my side. hurts more on the left, the right is more an ache. I get the pains even when i havent got the other symptoms. I have been doubled over with pain in the left of my abdomen just below the rib cage before. I've been back abd forward to the doctors each time but no.one does anything, they just don't care. every urine test they do shows an infection and considerable amounts of blood but still I.just get sent away with 3 data antibiotics. I reallly can't live like this its ruining my life. someone please help me, what can I do? please

Hello. My probwm started more than a month ago. After eating supper I could still feel the feed in my tummy the next morning. After 2 weeks it stopped. But then I started having abdomen pains. For about 2-3 weeks now, I have 2 spots in my abdomen hat spams and pain, bloating and still have constant hunger. If I don't take medication to get the gut working (OTC meds) then I don't pass a stool. I can feel the stool there but can't pass it. For 4 days I could not pass a Stoll when I stopped the medication. Sometimes the stools are normal sometimes its really soft. Please help Kim
i am a 16 year old girl and generally i am quite happy with how i look and things and i like to go out partying etc, but i always have to be really careful with what i wear because i started shaving my abdomen and 'bits' when i was about 13ish, and now 3 years later they seem to be growing back muchhhhhh more and much quicker and courser, and it is especially on my abdomen that i am mortified by, because i know that it is quite a petty thing and meant to be 'natural' but i swear barely anyone else has it, and if they do they seem to have found a way to combat it? and literally it is so embarrassing, it is stopping me from ever going swimming and even when i am on holiday i am terrified to be in a bikini if i haven't shaved that morning because the hair is really noticeable. i also always have to be really careful about what i wear and its just always on my mind. and i cant think of any other way to permanently get rid of it other than laser hair removal? because shaving just seems to make it worse and barely does the job for more than a few hours and waxing hurts too much and i swear it grows back anyway within about 10 days (for me anyway) and getting it done professionally is too expensive. however laser hair removal is just ridiculously expensive, i'm very close with my mum and i asked for it for my birthday but i didnt realise how expensive it was and its just too much. does anyone have any ideas of what i could do or how laser hair removal could be helpful? i need help! And please dont say 'its natural don't worry about it' because i cant go out in a bikini with a hairy abdomen for the rest of my life, i need heeeeelllpppppp xxxx
im currently unwell,ive had previous drastic surgery on my abdomen&bowel&have many health problems.During the last 10 days i have lost a stone in weight too.It started when i had some pain in my hip&stomache,fever which went with paracetamol&seemed to last for only a day.The pain intensified with lots of gas,which then "settled" into a very tender abdomen which was very much like the feeling of just having had surgery eg tender tummy,difficulty in coughing,laughing&walking properly upright&a stiffness in walking/moving.As the days progressed(3rd day)i developed diarrhea which i still have,This is day 6 now but i feel im getting abit better generally.Im scared its cancer but know i wont even get a drs appointment for at least 3wks!Should i go to hospital or just wait until i can see a dr?I dont think ive im properly hydrated either.Thank you in anticipation of any help.
Am I normal? I went through early puberty and started my period at age 10, I am now almost 16 and although I'm a virgin and not sexually active I'm on the pill because my periods are completely irregular, very heavy and have lasted for weeks in the past and has caused me to have anemia. I also have acute abdominal pain whilst on my period which lasts for days too. Although I'm on the pill I have constant pain in my lower abdomen. I've had blood tests and an ultrasound scan which were clear and my doctor decided that I'm intolerant to wheat and gluten which stopped most of the pain but the pain in my lower abdomen is still there and I can't help but wondering if its something more because my mum, Nan, sisters and other members of my family have all had some problem like endometriosis or ovarian cysts. I would just like to get it sorted out because I don't want to be on the pill forever.
I have had a persistent right sided lower back pain,which I thought was from my job. Only just over a month ago I noticed the right hand size of my lower abdomen was swollen and I was in alot of pain and had unusual bleeding. I was taken to the local walk in centre and they thought it was a suspected appendicitis. I was taken to the hospital to be examined. It turns out I had a uti infection and suspected utereric stones, and I had to take time off work because of the pain. I had a ultrasound 2 days ago and nothing could be found. Although when the doctor pushed the scanner onto the swollen part of my stomach there was a sharp pain,and since then I have had the lower abdomen pain again along with the swelling and I have also started bleeding again. I don't have periods because I have the implant. I am currently waiting on an xray and the camera. I have not got any idea what it could be. I am worrying now because my sister has pcos,fibroids and also had to have an ovarian cyst removed that was 30cm big. If anyone could help I would be very greatful.
