Question: right lower quadrant abdominal pain


 tenshiblue - Sat Aug 13, 2005 8:26 am

I've been having right lower quadrant abdominal pain whenever I walk for an extended periods of time. I don't have s/s of fever, nausea, vomiting, anorexia, or abdominal swelling. This pain has been with me for a few month now, it only happens when I walk. Can someone give some recommendations as to what it is?

Hi
you did not mention the nature of your pain ,is it colicky or dull pain .you need to be investigated by ultasound of the abdomen and x-ray of the spine to exclude a referred pain from the spine so you need to consult your doctor.

I am a female, age 41 and usually have no health problems. The only surgeries I have had is a total hysterectomy about 7 years ago.

But, over the past several months, I have been having lower right abdominal pain. The last month it has gotten more intense and bothersome. At times, like a stabbing pain, other times a dull pulling ache. Now I have nausea on a daily basis. I feel really bad almost all of the time now. The lower right of my back hurts (sometimes to the point even when I take a breath) My bowels are unpredictable, loose one day and then nothing for two days, then constipated.

I had some blood in my stool a few weeks ago. So my physician had a colonoscopy, scope and ultrasound done. But they say all looks normal. Said they may do a CT Scan. I am to the point I do not know what is wrong, but I know my body and something is going on. Sometimes is hurts to lay on my stomach when I sleep. Tired of hurting and feeling bad. I do not want to take a lot of medication to hide the symptoms, I want to find out what is wrong.

Do you have any advise?
