Hey everyone, I've just joined this forum and I really hope I can find out what's wrong... Thanks in advance. Uh.. Well I've been having weird problems.. I know this might not seem like a big deal but it's really been bothering me and it keeps getting gradually worse.

I have darker skin on my inner thighs. My skin seems grayish and light brown.. I don't know. Also, I have urinary incontinence with that.. Not the urgency kind of incontinence but the kind when your bladder empties itself sometimes after you peed and you don't even feel it. So I have to wear pads.. Ugh it's so horrible always having to go to school like that and I don't even go to public bathrooms because of that.

Other than that... A few months ago I'd experience these sharp pains under my breast on the left side, it'd be like knives stabbing me and I couldn't move or breathe normally for a bit then the pains would come and go. But now they're not there anymore, I don't know how they suddenly disappeared and never came back but I don't know if this was related so that's why I'm putting it anyways...

These past few days have been so much worse though, I'm getting just slight pains that aren't really huge in the abdomen since I've been used to gas pains for the past year, they've been consistent. And I don't know if it's constipation but I've been not being able to poo ? Lol but even when I did I felt like I still had a mass in my stomach. Uhh.. And gas pains have actually woken me up a lot of times some days that I couldn't sleep.

Also, I get really nauseous after showers.. I know that might not help a lot but it always happens. Then I feel like fainting and when I get up from bed I see dots in front of my eyes and I feel really weak.

Eh also to add to the urinary incontinence, sometimes it's like my discharge is clear and smells, I wouldn't know though... I haven't not worn pads in so long. Uhh also I get really really heavy periods if that helps. I go pee and the toilets always bloody from my period.

I'm don't wanna go to a doctor since it might not be serious.. Can someone please help? :(

Can someone please help? :(Hello Snow-Angel,I could only figure out some of the symptoms, like under your left breast is your left lung so I'm assuming that you've probably got an infection. I'm curious as to whether you smoke or drink? (I understand you're only 16 but I know of 14 year old children smoking and drinking so it is something I should ask). I also would like to know if you've gone to the doctor for coughing for more than 3 months, or if you've been told you have asthma, these may be the cause of the pain. If you're unable to use the restroom for number two, then that is called constipation and what I recommend for that would be high-in-fiber diets or supplements. (Shredded Wheat; Colon Cleanse respectively.) Are your periods irregular and have you had sex or what way do you wipe when using the bathroom? The later two for when you empty your bladder I believe you may have a urinary infection which should be gone to a doctor for. As for when you get up from bed the dots you see are a result from when the blood is rushing from your head as you get up. I recommend slowly getting up in the mornings, take your time and that should go away.Either way I recommend you see a doctor for your symptoms. What may seem "unimportant" to you may be signals that can be prevented in the future. A doctor is there for your questions no matter how ridiculous and it's important they know your discomfort so they can assist you. After all, that is what a doctor is for. :)I wish you the best of luck and I hope that these things are resolved soon so you can continue living a healthy life.-Tie

I tried using laxative and it didn't work. I think there's either nothing there or if there is I don't know what to do anymore. My periods are regular and no I haven't. I wipe myself from front to back.. Lol. Well I've had it for more than a year if it's an urinary infection, I'm wondering how do they treat that? I'm really clueless about anything.. But thanks for your help! I'm just really shy to go to the doctor.. It's kind of hard and really embarassing for me being only 16 and having these embarassing issues. Anyways, thanks for replying and trying to help. :o
