In the beginning of August i began to have pain in my vag/groin area, buttocks, and low back. I also had pain off and on in my mid-back and lower right pelvis. I also began to have pain in my left pelvis and stomach around the belly button area. I had several cat scans and they found an ovarian cyst that was removed Dec. 26th. I have been gradually get worse and more severe pain. The pain in the mid-back is now constant and varies in intensity from dull to very severe. My left pelvis, left side of my belly button. On Friday I had an episode that was the worst pain i have ever felt in my life. I went to the e.r. where they gave me a shot for pain (which worked) My blood pressure was 145/80 which is high for me usually 110/60. pulse was 130. I also have been getting a weird metallic taste in my mouth. The doctor at the e.r. said he would not do a cat scan because i have already had many. I told him maybe with that episode we could now see the stone but he refused. My blood work came back - white blood count - 15.40. My red blood cells were low - 3.97. Glucose was high at 111 and my calcium level was low at 8.4(barely low). Right now i have a lot of pain in my buttocks, left stomach and pelvis, Mid-back and left side around to the back. I think it is a kidney stone sounds just like it. I also have trace amounts of blood in my urine and have had 3 urinary tract infections since august, but do not have one now. I don't know if i should just go to a bigger and better hospital. Has anyone out there had kidney stones that did not show on cat scan????
