I'm a 17 year old female, who has always been relatively healthy. I've had a past with getting awful migraines, but those have seemed to stop.
I've been in pain for about a month now. At first, the pain started in my abdomen. I'd describe it as somewhat bloated, perhaps swelling. That's when I noticed a sudden change in my bowel patterns. It became very watery, and mucus was also coming out. At first I thought maybe it would pass, and it would be no big deal. Well, it continued on for a week, before I finally went into the doctors. She ran a blood test for Celiac disease, and that came back normal. She ordered an ultrasound of my stomach, specifically my gallbladder and kidneys. Nothing was unusual or alarming about my visit, but I had higher blood pressure than I usually have. (Brushes off as nerves)
The ultrasound came back clear for gallbladder, but it did show kidney stones. I then took a urine sample, to see if I was passing/attempting to pass them, which came back negative. I'm not passing kidney stones, and my gallbladder is clear of anything..
I've pretty much lost my appetite, and I've lost a few pounds, because every time I eat, it hurts the entire right side of my stomach, and back. I'm a dancer as well, so everytime I dance, I am in extreme pain. I have recitals coming up this weekend, and next weekend, and I'm extremely worried. It's been a whole month, and no one can seem to pin point the pain.
Recently, I have become constipated, and the pain comes in bursts. I was given samples of Amitiza to see if that eases the strain, but it hasn't done much. I have Tylenol with Codeine, and it literally has done nothing for the pain.
As of right this moment, I have awful back pains, that started to occur today during dance. Its been 6 hours now, and it hurts to move even a little bit. I did take a Tylenol 3, but it hasn't helped at all. It's starting to worry me a lot. I can't breath in, get up, bend over, or do anything without pain shooting up my back. It feels very stiff, and I've never experienced pain like this before. I have not fallen or done anything strenuous that I know of.. I dance 3 times a week, for 4 hours, so my body is used to exercise.
If their is any additional information anyone needs to know, I will gladly provide. I'm just so frustrated, and sick of being in pain all of the time.
