Question: intestinal pain/ lower back pain/ low grade fever

 prlopez - Wed Aug 27, 2008 3:38 pm

Last week (Wednesday) I woke up with cramping in my stomach. Didn't hestiate - took Pepto. Worse the next day. The syptoms were exatly like those last year when I suffered from Yersinia - bacterial infection from food poisioning. Doctor that treated me last year gave an extra prescipt for Cipro. Started that last Friday. Seemed to be getting better. Still had pains, but were getting more bearable. Today pains were back - pains from the navel down to what would be like ovarian cramps. My lower back started feeling sore. My stomach is bloated a little. Low grade fever now - 99.2 (I usually am 98.0). Brief history: Hysterectomy 10 years ago due to severe endometriosis. He left both ovaries. Told me after surgery, couldn't get all of endemetriosis because there was some on my rectal tube. Two years ago, I was diagnosed with cysts on my ovary - nothing new I seem to always get them.
The two weeks prior to this cramping in intestines, I could have sworn had another cyst because the pain was the same as always.
So question....what's up with all of this stuff. Ready to get back to normal.

Please post: this IS NOT CERVICAL CANCER!!!!!!! Please use the term cancer not so loosely! I have been diagnosed with UTI - urinary tract infection. Please make sure you post this so that other patients searching for an answer do not see CANCER!!!!! Several nights with worry thanks to your forum of "cervical cancer".
