Question: Burning Pains/Ache, Gas Feeling, etc.


 louisjosephtripp - Sun Apr 01, 2007 10:31 pm

Hello, I am an 18 year old female. No current meds, no surgeries. No family history of abdominal problems that I know of.

I am having some strange pains in my mid-to-lower abdomen. They are burning sensations. They have started in the past several days and gotten more intense. I was scared it was pregnancy, but I got my period today and it's a normal period. But this does not feel like my normal period pain--it isn't. This started before my period and has continued. I have been feeling discomfort in my abdomen for about a week but it has not been feeling burning until recently. I also have lower back pain, which I usually have around this time of the month. No urinating problems. Sometimes it feels like I have gas. But the burning sensation is really strange and disturbing.
A couple of other things--I've been feeling kind of warm/feverish sometimes, and a little woozy.

I currently struggle with anxiety, depression, insomnia, OCD behavior and occasional stress.

Thank you

User avatar There are a few possibilities off hand. You may have a urinary tract infection. While a little less likely, you may also be experiencing symptoms of endometriosis. You may also have a mild infection of the GI tract with a virus.

If your symptoms persist I would recommend that you see your doctor for evaluation.

Best wishes.
