Abdominal pain

Nov 08, 2011 - 0 comments

I have been experiencing lower abdominal pain for the past year. i am a 16 year old female and 8 weeks ago had a laparoscopy to try to find out what the cause was. they didn't find anything but said that on the right side my bowel looked full and they said i was constipated but said they removed my appendix anyway whilst they were in there. since then i had severe stomach cramps with constipation and diarrhea for about 3 weeks and the doc gave me some stuff to try to calm it down. they said they thought i might have irritable bowel syndrome and prescribed me fybogel mebeverine and buscopan tablets which seemed to help a bit. i have also increased my fibre intake because they said this should help. my stomach eventually settled down but i was still experiencing the same abdominal pain from before. over the past few weeks this pain has got worse again and i have been feeling nauseous. last week i could hardly eat anything and have lost 10 pounds since this all started. i only weigh 6 stone 6 pounds and my height is 5ft 1inch. i have been getting pains all over my stomach area and on both sides of my lower abdomen but mostly in my right near my groin. i can't always tell if it is coming from my pelvic bones because it hurts there sometimes and i get a lot of back ache. it hurts under my right rib sometimes quite a bit.  i also started to get really bad heartburn and chest palpitations and pain a week ago so the docs prescribed me omeprazole capsules which also seemed to help a bit but the pains are still there a bit even though i had an ecg that proved normal and i get really sore pains in my stomach. it hurts to walk sometimes and my legs ache and i have also been getting cystitis like symptoms that once got so bad i ended up in a&e but they just gave me strong painkillers and sent me home after a urine test. i have also had smelly vaginal discharge and i have been sore down below but they have checked my urine and couldn't find anything so have prescribed me something for thrush. i have also had blood test for helicobacter pylori and celiacs disease but nothing came back. i have had really bad headaches for the past 2 weeks and don't know what to do. i really want them to find out whats wrong but they seem to be clueless. i am in my final year at school and my grades are dropping because i am having to have time off. i would be grateful if anyone has any ideas as to what this could be please
