I am new to this site. I came upon it when researching my symptoms in a search engine. I've had 4 children. I am 47 years old. I have rheumatoid arthritis; being treated with Remicade. I recently passed a kidney stone and have three small stones left in my left kidney. Last week, I began experiencing tremendous low-back pain. I thought this was a worsening of the arthritis in my spine. I then began to experience vaginal spotting. It is still occuring almost a week later, and the back pain is excruciating. I feel much better when lying down. Yesterday I began to feel very light-headed and nauseous. I am also very bloated - I can hardly button my pants. I saw my doctor last week when this first started. He recommended a CT scan if symptoms did not go away in a week. I will have that CT scan in a couple of days. My question is this: How likely is it that these could be symptoms of cancer? I have a maternal aunt who died last year of ovarian cancer. My mother had lung cancer, my father prostate cancer, my grandmother bladder cancer. It's just hard to wait for these tests and test results! Has anyone out there had symptoms like these?
