.. my doctor told me that my pain will go away once I go to the bathroom. Well, with stool sofenters helping and fiber tablets I've been going at least once a day. However, the pain on my lower left side near my pubic area has gotten much worse, and I have chills, fever, lower back pain sometimes, no appetite, and nausua that comes and goes. What could be wrong? If it's two seperate problems, what's wrong? There was mucus in my urine test also.

  • I think you need to go back to your doctor as it could be any one of a 1001 things. As you have had a urine test, your doctor should be able to rule some things out (e.g. kidney infection - this can sometimes cause displaced pain). The mucus might indicate an infection, but then again it might not. Only your doctor can really tell from your test results.

  • Cassie,An ultra sound of your uterus (you are female?), bladder and kidneys might be in order. You may have a cyst or growth of some kind or some type of inflammation if the pain is only in the one area. This may explain mucus in your urine. Check white blood cell count that would indicate if you have an infection of some kind. Bladder infection would definitely cause such rotten feelings.Agape,Searchingsam.

  • The pain started about three months ago, but only slight pain that would come and go. Now the pain never goes and it's on my upper left stomach as well. I started being constipated about 2 months ago, but with all the laxies and medicines I went a lot and now when I can eat I go with the help of stool softeners prescribed to me. For a 16 year old female, this is horriable pain. It's worse after I have sex with my boyfriend. I'm on the birth control yaz which my mother thinks might have caused it. I don't know for sure.

  • I have to agree. Your mother could be correct. The symptoms do appear to really be pointing to a gynecological problem. You may want your doctor to refer to the gynecologist. I had real similar problems, which started at the age of 13. I am now 38 and have since had several surgeries - and in 2000 had a total hysterectomy. During those several years, no doctor's could find a cause. They told me that I was much too young to also have endometriosis and by the time they found it, it was in the last stage, causing them to leave some of the endo on my organs. In any case, it does not sound like it could be that, although certainly could be a "female" issue. If it was a bladder or kidney infection, a family doctor could have easily diagnosed it with a urine sample in the office. I have had bladder, kidney and urinary tract infections since the age of 9, as well. Good luck on your next doctor's visit. :)
