    i had undergone appendectomy 8 yrs ago. my appendix had burst at that time, but the surgery went OK. but about year ago, i started experiencing constipation and diarrhoea and i had have a terrible pain right at the surgery scar that refuses to go away. it increases while walking or running at a stretch, coughing, sneezing, laughing, stretching my hands upwards. I also get it when sat down and i also suffer from frequent bloating of stomach with no proper reason. i also have difficulty passing gas as it increases the pain at the scar region. i had undergone ultrasound, abdominal x-ray, endoscopy with video and colonoscopy but they revealed nothing. but a tenderness remains at the scar region and i feel as if something just under the skin has got a bit inflamed or that something is wrong. i have this pain most of the time and it feels as if i have pulled a muscle or ligament. what is wrong with me?

    Hi , I'm 18 & my tonsils have been in pain for about a week. Including the fact that I've been sick since Mardi gras. I see all these symptoms, (pus, coughing, headaches, sore throat, trouble sleeping, etc), I have all these symptoms but it's also hard to breathe while sleeping, constant siliva, being lightheaded, stomach pains as I drink/try to eat & throwing up. I haven't ate an actual meal in about 3-4 days. I'm not sure if this is something bigger than tonsilitis, but it's very painful. Plus I have the ACT this weekend so I would really appreciate it if it went away by then. HELP!

    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.

    Hi there.. I have experienced, not often, but when I do have it, it's whilst I am asleep normally early hours of the morning, When it happens I end up coughing and getting the bad acidic taste in my mouth, and an uncomfortable tender throat, it takes me a while to try and control the coughing eventually the coughing stops. I am 46 6ft tall and 280lbs, I have never taken tablets for it.

    For the past 7 weeks, I have been waking up with a dry mouth, that feels like sandpaper. In the past week I have had a sore throat that is producing a lot of mucas, and in the last four days, I have had a pain in my ear that either feels like I have something in it/or like my ear popping kind of pain. However the ear pain lasts for about 5-10 mins at a time, comes and goes, esp if I put my finger in my ear. For about a month I was coughing at least twice a day and pains in my throat. I had a coughing fit one day about 2 weeks ago, an must have dislodged something, as I have stopped coughing since. I have been the doctor twice ( last one 2 weeks ago). First doctor said its because Im snoring in bed with my mouth open. Second doctor said after I told her I think I dislodged something, that I should keep watch of it and to come back in a month if the throat hasnt heeled. Im no longer getting pain in my throat, just ears and back of mouth that feels like a stingy pain. I can swallow ok and there is no lumps. Should I be worried?

    2 years I was coughing & sneezing a lot! Went through all the med doctors gave. I even tried homeopathic with no success. Then I remembered that several years ago I had the same chronic coughing. During my break at work I use sleep on a couch & wake up with severe coughing, I stopped sleeping on it as it was covered with dust mites. 2 years ago It happened again, went through extensive tests with no results, it is then I remembered the sette with mites! I immediately replaced all my beddings & the sette (not made of material). Chants to wooden floors! My coughing & sneezing is gone! Please try it, it could be this! Now I replace my pillows & quilt every 3 months. Hope this helps!

    that sounds like an inguinal hernia part of your intestine comes through your abdominal wall and will eventually protrude where your groin meets your legs, in some cases it can drop down into the sack also!

But, I am a 39yr.old female so it may possibly have started sometime before you started noticing the Testicular Problem, but i like to keep an open mind about most subject's. My initial hunches tell me it maybe the Sexual Transmitted Disease - Clamyidia. The Symtoms of the Aches and Pains you are feeling is the Diease spreading and becoming more dangerous for you to Carry on Having in your Bodies'Symtoms.

    I have been ill since the Tuesday before the Royal Wedding. Initially started with a sore throat, then started coughing and felt lethargic. Had antibiotics - Doxycycline. Didn't clear up. I lost my voice about 2 days in and it didn't come back for almost 6 weeks, by which time I was given a second dose of antibiotics - Trimethoprim. Finally got my voice back, but still, any exertion, even making the bed, sets off coughing and throat is still sore. Third dose of antibiotics given - Clarythromycin. Finished these 2 days ago, no change at all. Feel very fed up, and throat constantly feels as though I have something stuck in it, especially at the left hand side. Please help???

    Get tested for mono / glandular fever:-)

    Since having my daughter nearly 3 years ago, I have never enjoyed sex as i did before. I don't have internal sensatioin, but do feel regular pain. I feel there is something which is there that shouldn't be. Whenever I have sex, I feel like my partner is banging on something and it is excruciating. Clitoral stimulation is a no no.. It for some reason is rather painful also. I quite regularly wet myself, not huge amounts, unless I have a cold and can't stop coughing. Also, I am just 21. I read somewhere and thought I could have a prolapsed bladder and urethra..

    Hello everyone, I'm 28 years old and have had three vaginal deliveries, my youngest child is two. About two wks ago, I got an extremely bad cold which made me have a lot of heavy coughing.. now there is something protruding from my vagina! It's about th size of an egg.. Before this, my sex life was amazing and I had no genital problems, now sex is painful, I cannot get wet and my husband goes unsatisfied as well... I also have incontinence when I cough and my vicks aches as well as lower back pain.. These symptoms seem to point to a vaginal prolapse but without insurance I have no doctor :( Any advice??
