Hi. I'm Sandra, and, I just joined the forum here. :) I was wondering if anyone can help me here. Around a month and a half ago, I began experiencing stomach cramps that especially bothered me when I laid on my stomach. I was taking Zinc at the time. My doctor said it could be from the Zinc, so, I stopped taking it. It seemed that the cramps gradually went away.
Roughly two weeks later, I begin experiencing a pain in the lower right quadrant of my abdomen. It's an aching pain. Then the cramping in my sides start up again, and then, on top of that, I was having lower back pain now! In addition to this, I was feeling nauseated. I've seen an OB/GYN, a GI, the family physician, I've been to the er twice, and the most that anyone can come up with is that I have a urinary tract infection, and, aside from that, nothing "appears" to be wrong. I'm about to start climbing the walls and foaming at the mouth here, I swear! Does this sound at all familiar to anyone on here?
