Any ideas? This has been going on for over a month please any offer some thing.
It all started over 3 weeks ago. I was having flank pain on the right side. told UTI bevause there was blood in urine. Also been menstruating lightly for 5 weeks. (told b/c of new birth control) Was given antibiotics and told to see uroligist.
Went to him and had CT no stones but had something showing on lowerlobe of lung -told me pnemonia. Mean time nausea non stop (not pregnant). Also had light cough no phlem .
After stopped taking antibiotics I started to get pain right side under rib. Had sonogram and HEPA SCAN gall bladder normal . When I went to recheck lungs found enlarged lymph nodes ,1 measuring 1 cm.
Was placed on Cipro.
Now again after antibiotic are done getting pain back with buring sensation on rightside from front to back plus a feeling of a fist being stuck under my ribs ,nausea and belching. Now I was told to see a Gastroentroligist. I have been to so many doctors with no resolution. Does any one have some advice?

  • Does the pain, nausea, and belching come after eating something specific? Maybe you could do a track of what you've been eating and matching them up to they symptoms. I finally found out I was latose intolerant after a while of the same symptoms, and the only way they knew to look for that was to have me keep a food and symptom diary.Have they done a esophogeal scope? You could also have a hiatal hernia, which doesn't usually cause symptoms, but they sometimes do cause symptoms similar to yours.I do hope you get to feeling better soon, and I hope this gets worked out for you.Later,Ericka
