Hello, I am a 37 years old and have been experiencing a wide variety of symptoms for quite sometime now. It first started with irregular spotting in between periods, and pain after sex, which the dr was not at all concerned with. About a year and half ago, I started to feel just generally unwell, from there a variety of other symptoms started to emerge. Bloating, feeling of fullness, not being able to empty the bladder, always feeling constipated, but not. Chest pains, intermintent lower back ache and so on. About 3 weeks ago, I got a severe sudden onset of pain in my lower back that made me unable to move, was rushsed to emergency, where they druged me up and sent me home. The assumption was I had done something to my back, and was treated as such for about 3 weeks. Right from the start I didn't feel it was something in my back, as the pain was going right through my abdomen. And although that horrendous pain I had that day is gone, I have been left with a constant nagging lower back ache that goes right through to my abdomen. I cannot sit for longer than 30min at a time, wtihout being in great discomfort. So, now my dr is ordering some tests, and is starting to look at the issue being in my abdomen rather than my back. I am looking for anyone who has had similar symptoms and a recieved a diagnosis. Help please??View Thread
