I currently have 3 things going on that may or may not be related at all.

1) I had a c-section 5 + months ago and ever since I get a dull throbbing in my left side that seems really random.. I may have it most of the day one day and then not at all the next or for minutes or hours at a time. It's very sporadic.

2) I'm breastfeeding and currently have an infection and am on Dicloxacillin for it- my breasts are horribly horribly itchy to the extent it keeps me up at night- that's been the past week or so.

3) Randomly I get a wave of tingling- almost what I would call a burning/really cold sensation (it's kinda a confusing feeling) up my back.... last night it was up the right side and then the left side started. This has been randomly happening for the past month and a half or so.

I'm not sure if I should keep pestering the doctor... I've asked about #1 several times and got basically blown off and told to let him know if it gets really painful- that it may be kidney stones (i just find it odd it started RIGHT after the c-section)

Number 2 I'm assuming is either caused by the infection or the medication?

Number 3 I have no clue- I've had no back injury or anything recently, but it feels really creepy.

Any ideas?
