Doc suggested I see gyn, and I have an appt on Tues am, but I am worried. Primary doc did not feel anything externally, but I am having bl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dder <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> (going at least once an hour or so) and pain on my lower right side in my pelvic area. Those are my only two symptoms, no an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gasan>, bloating, or other "classic" ovca signs. I am 39 yr old, no kids. My beautiful sis passed away one year ago after a 4-year battle. She was only 40. any reasurrance would help.
The worst pain/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> is around my lower abdomen (bl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dder, pelvic bones areas) and peri-rectal area. I used to have very normal periods before I went on bc, mild cramping, no spotting. Now I get spotting days before I start and for a few days after, and I have moderate cramping for up to a week before my P starts. are these normal? Is my cycle just changing bean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>causean> I'm older now, or should I be concerned?
I recently out of no where developed pain and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> in my stomach and felt <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my bl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dder. I was also getting up 4-6 times a night to urinate. I went to my OB/Gyn and he did a culture on my urine and there was no uti. He gave me antibiotics for 3 days any ways and it did not go away. I have a history of uti's and I was sure this was a uti but it wasn't. I than again went into my OB/Gyn again and he did some bladder tests that were very uncomfortable.
Nausea or queasiness, vomiting and <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>g<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>s</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> are frequent. There may or may not be belching or burping. The gall bl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dder, which sits just below the rib cage to the right of the stomach, is very tender to touch. It can be so painful that it takes your breath away. You may not be able to walk without bending over. Sometimes the pain radiates through to the back shoulder blade on the right side or in the middle between the shoulder blades.
I have had 3 children in the past and maybe it is worse when the bl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dder prolapses somewhat, putting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the uterus. I have bl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dder issues. When I laugh or cough, urine may escape. I went to the doctor and he said there was no fistula. I had a colonoscopy, and I'm fine. When I lay down on my back and change positions air escapes or when I get up from a chair after sitting a while, air escapes.

Currently i'm waiting as to what, when I need surgery to repair a fistula between the bl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dder/prostate and rectum. From reading up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> it, a fistula is an abnormal communication betwee the urinairy tract and the bowel or in my case the rectum. I early March this year I ended up in hospital after having been free of major infections for about 3 years. My hospital stay was the result of a kidney infection as well as pnumonia.
Hi Patrice 13, your prob sounds a lot like mine. Since I kept calling it a "an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gasan> bubble" or "ball stuck-in-there", I felt that the docs didn't believe it was anything more serious than an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gasan>. Ha! This "thing" was causing serious pain &amp; during a "flare-up" I'm not able to do much of anything - except suffer. Nothing helps. The "bubble or ball" is there all of the time, as if it's stuck. Sometimes it even seems to spasm.
all I can say is that whoever commented how they can't get an answer could have been me. I'm in the same bloat. Extensive bloating, <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>g<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>s</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>, belching has been going <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> for years and no-one has been able to get to the bottom of it. I've had gallbladder removed and things are no better or no worse than before I had it removed.

The pain in my middle side and mid and lower back got worse, went back to doctor, was given a urine test and was told I had a bl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dder and kidney infection. I was put <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my second antibiotic, the pain in lower back finally ceased, but I still have the pain in side and back. also, I have pain in both feet and legs, mostly tingling in legs, but feet hurt on top and especially my big toes. Did you have any of these symptoms? I feel sluggish and don't sleep very well at night, and sweats.

My OB said that can happen with a large cyst b/c it puts <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the top of your vaginal wall c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>using an intense pain and feeling like you need to pee.

Could this be activated by the Vagus nerve being irritated post surgery by the left over <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>g<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>s</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>, etc...? am i <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the right course by increasing my Paxil to address this? 2) since my gall bladder removal, i have felt bloated, have a lack of appetite (lost 25 lbs since initial symptoms 4 wks ago), diarreha is bad, and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gasan> feels like it is everywhere in my belly. I take Prevacid (30mg) and have for last 2 months, no effect for this though.
Then throughout the day, the <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>g<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>s</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span>/bloating builds and peaks (anywhere from 7-10 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the scale). It used to peak in the late afternoon, but now it happens sooner; I also feel my stomach get very tight immediately after eating meals as the day progresses. actually, for the past month or so, I have noticed it has been pretty bad in the mornings (4-5 on the scale). If I can pass some of this, it will slightly subside and then start to build as the day progresses.
also try drinking a lot of water, in between meals (not so in the evening as it puts <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the bl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dder/kidneys). Perhaps soy milk in your case, cheese/sour cream are causing it.. also not everyone can handle raw veggie/fruit juices and they get stomach pains (ex. raw carrot, apple etc - should be mix with water) and I heard eating garlic helps with bloating/an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gasan>. They sell garlic pills in almost every nutrition stores, pharmacies...
I lost 20 lbs which is great but now it seems like I'm more sensitive to certain foods c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>using stomach <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>g<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>s</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>. I just recently linked my heart palps to <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>g<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>s</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>/indigestion! I can predict when they are coming just by what I feel or hear from my stomach. I had a really scary episode last week that landed me back in the ER. I felt like my heart stopped- scared me to death so we went in. They hooked me up to the EKG for an hour or so and the heart palps happened while I was being monitored.
You could be creating an inflamation in your stomach and intestinal tract c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>using great discomfort. It can push up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the diaphram and or vagus nerve c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>using pressure and great discomfort which alone can an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>causean> anxiety but also possibly disrupt blood flow or nerve firing which possibly can lead to the afib. There could be many other factors involved as well. You ruled out ulcer but mentioned a metallic taste you get.
Hey PIB, i think I am the only one here who has something similar and mine weirdly is slightly better this week. But, I totally understand the sensation you are talking about and find it annoying. To give you background on my pain, it started in February when I was diagnosed with an ovarian cyst. Gyne thought the cyst was sitting on the bowel and causing pressure. Well, the pressure from that was more "pelvic" in nature.
I began having severe chest pains on the left side, sometimes pain in the left arm and increased <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>g<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>s</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> about 3 months ago. I even went into the ER it was so bad, I thought I was having heart problems. I am only 22 years old and in good shape, used to work out a lot, so I didn't know how this could be. I ended up finding out that I have gall bladder sludge, which I am told will eventually turn into stones.
extra beats for 6 wks afterwards. at the follow-up, the EP seemed to think that I should go <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> low-dose atenolol for some ventricular beats that showed up on an event monitor. He never addressed the chest pain, ongoing fatigue or breathing problems. Before you think I'm sending this to the wrong forum (!), here's where things get GI-oriented. I had a major episode of burning pain, ctr of chest, clavicle level 1 wk ago.
Sometimes the pain is so severe I feel I can't breathe and get nauseated. It takes a while for the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> to let up. I also get hiccups while this is going <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> which seem to alleviate some of the symptoms somehow. I also feel like food and drink get trapped in this area as I feel water moving around in the upper abdomen. Not sure if it's a sensation or actually happening but it concerns me as well.
If you start taking advil or aleve the day before your period starts, it'll cut down <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> prostaglandin production, and should reduce your symptoms. Taking <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>g<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>s</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>-X and/or a half-dose of Imodium aD may also help. Cutting back on your sodium and caffeine intake, and exercising are other self-care measures.
Don't know that this really helps but I had odd <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> it felt like my uterus was going to fall out &amp; if I'd sit down or lie down it would go away I never did this til after my son was born especially if I had went to the mall or just stood alot the day before it would really bother me &amp; if my period was fixing to start the pressure would startup.
