Scary abdominal and back pain

In September I was suffering from stomach pain just underneath my left rib cage. It was a ongoing burning sensation. One day that suddenly changed. It felt like something was being torn off and then that area became very cold for awhile and I felt very sick and weak. Right after that I spent the next hour or so going to the bathroom. It felt like my whole body washed out. The ER doc did a CT scan which showed that my uterus was very enlarged which I didn't know. They sent me back to my doctor who put me on Prevacid but never addressed the back pain that comes with this non-stop. Now it is December/ the back pain and the abdominal pain is worse and has moved lower. It feels as if there is a lead weight in there and if it moves, I feel weak and sick and I wash out. I go from normal bowel movements and urinating to diarherra until I am really weak. I can feel my pulse on my abdomen. I thought maybe the back and the stomach were separate issues but I don't think so anyomre.

Anyway, these symptoms seems to be increasing and they are frightening. I was wondering if anyone knows what could be causing this and how serious it might be. The doctor thought it was acid reflux, but with back pain and so low? Can anyone help with this?
