Hi i'm Angela, I'm only 20 years old and I have an unknown problem that I need help with. I have gone multiple times to my family doctor, the obgyn, and to the hospital once, they did not help me what so ever, and I don't have he money to keep going. I know their is something really wrong, I know i'm not crazy, I just think they are not looking at the things they need to. My family doctor says it's just "girl problems" but that's not where the pain is coming from and he does not understand that. He just gave me pain pills and told me to go to my gynocologist, so i did. She found nothing wrong. So here's my story of the problem I'm experiencing. About a year ago I started to have these pains in my abdominal area. The pain woke me up one night from my sleep. It was so severe i was crying and shouting in pain. All I could do is curl myself up into a ball, but the pain was still horrendous. The pain came on suddenly, and it goes in pulses, it will severely hurt, get dull and achy, then get severe again. After a couple hours it stopped and i was able to sleep, the next day it came back throughout the day every couple of hours. And that night it was so sever I was vomiting and my parents took me to the hospital. At the hospital they thought maybe my appendix burst, or i had kidney stones, things along those lines. They said the only thing they were certain of is I had an infection and so they treated that with antibiotics. My ultrasound of my uterus apparently showed some sort of blobs so they thought I had ovarian cyst. My family doctor said they will go away in time so he gave me the pain pills I have been using for a year now. But none of that has been helping, my pain feels like it is coming from my intestines, something they did not check. When I have these pains its really hard to make a bowl movement, it brings me so much pain I cry and sometimes even throw up. Also sometimes I find i have bloody stools, which is really scary. My pains used to come about once a month randomly, their was no pattern, but now they are only weeks apart. I had one 2 weeks ago, and I had another episode just on Friday which lasted 3 whole days. It seems to be getting more frequent and more painful. I threw up a lot, and I haven't ate much in a while since it irritates the pain. I still even feel sick today. These are my symptoms that go along with my unknown condition: Severe pain in my abdominal Painful and sometimes bloody stools Nausea and Vomiting Diarrhea and Constipation Headache and dizziness Fever and Irritability And dull pain around the areas where my kidneys are. Please I really need help! Next time I go to the doctor I want an idea of what it is so I can stop wasting money on useless test . I need to know soon, I don;t know how much more of this I can take. Thank you.View Thread
