I am 40 y/o female with a hx of abd operations ending in 1998 with total hysto. I have a hepatic hemangiomia, medullary spone kidneys, Hep C (after serving in the morgue during ODS), interstitial cystitis and a body rash.I have been gradually becoming more ill with pain in my right abd for about 1.5 years. Pain in my center abd has increased 10 fold. I have had a new onset(6 months def no injury) of coccyx bone pain(goes away with antibiotic use yet,PCP didnt think it is an infection?), right groin pain down into leg and most alarming is my new blood pressure of 127/97 all the time for 6-8 months. I weigh 110 lbs and my pressure has also been 127/65. My cholesterol has increased as well to 230 majority LDL. What could be causing this? I feel very sick, please help. Respectfully, April Anderson
You distilled a very complex medical history into one paragraph.
Its quite concerning that you have had abdominal pain for 18months and bad coccyx pain for 6 months. The causes of abdominal pain are numerous and can range from adhesions (scar tissue) in some one who has had previous surgery to gall stones to diverticular disease of the colon. I think that you should continue to make your pcp and gyn doctor aware of what you describe as severe symptoms. At some point, they may consider a CAT scan which might shed some light on the origin of your discomfort. If I were you, I would not hesitate to report to the emergency department
