For the past 4 days, I have had severe pains inside of my stomach,in and around my belly button, The pains are so sharp that they acually are making me vomit.
I went to the emergency room to see what was going on but all the Doctor said was it sounds like a cyst in the "ovary" and did no tests or internals to acually see if thats what it was... and that was 4 days ago, and I am still feeling the excat same pains, and i have no appetite and am extremly weak. What could this possibly be????? please respond!!!!
I am 20 years old, in a 3 year commited relatioship and I have 1 child who is almost 2 and he was delivered by C section 6 weeks early.--- I am on birth control pills, and take precautions when needed, I feel as if pregnancy is not a factor, but there is always that chance.
I did/do not have constipation, but diarrehea on the other hand I did, slightly but not much. Also I forgot to menchion in my last post, that I had some bleeding/spotting,not much mostly just when i went to the bathroom, but it wasn't red period blood, it was more of a dark brown/black watery color and it lasted for about 3-4days.
I am making an APT with my family DOC in the AM, but i find it hard to get into him, so i wonder if i should go back to the ER if i do not get in, because this pain has been on-going for 5 days now, and it is getting harder to tolerate. I;ve been taking Advil extra strenght to see if it helps the pain but it does not, and I still am feeling nauseated.
This has been on-going with me, about 5 months ago, I had the same kind of pains in and around the belly button area, and I had a CT done and numerous of ultrasounds, and they all came back normal, Also my white blood cell count was high and I seen an blood doctor for that but he said he felt no concerns and that point. I am just so lost in this whole thing me nor the doctors have no idea whats going on with me and nothing much is being done about it, and I am hoping to get some more advice from you's, it helps a lot on your opinios and thoughts, thank ypu, Please respod back!!!!!
You should reconsult with your doctor; take a second opinion if you are not convinced.
Since you have been having the symptoms for quite some time now, it would be advisable to get yourself investigated to reach a confirmed diagnosis.
The further plan of management would involve -
'-Blood tests including full blood count, electrolytes, urea, creatinine, liver function tests, pregnancy test and lipase.
-Imaging including erect chest X-ray and plain films of the abdomen
-An electrocardiograph to rule out a heart attack which can occasionally present as abdominal pain
If diagnosis remains unclear after history, examination and basic investigations as above then more advanced investigations may reveal a diagnosis. These as such would include
-Computed Tomography of the abdomen/pelvis
-Abdominal or pelvic ultrasound
-Endoscopy and colonoscopy'
