Maybe. Notify MD: Liver disorders can cause dark urine. Discolored urine can also be caused by certain foods, medication, and kidney infections. Also if you haven't been hydrating due to nausea, the next urine may come out darker than usual. The bottom line is, your physician should know about this so he/she can run more tests and get a better idea of what might be going on.

Tell Your Doctor: Any changes in urine color that have no distinct dietary association, reoccur or last longer than a couple days should be reported to a physician for assessment. Symptoms like abdominal pain and a sudden change in urine color to red or brown could prompt investigation into problems with the muscles, kidneys or liver as well as issues like porphyrias. Inform your physician of symptoms.

Yes: See your doctor, need urinalysis and blood work. Often liver products show up in urine, ask if you need a hida scan to check gallbladder function, pain is telling you something is wrong so get it checked out immediately.

Do not think so : I am not aware of any connection between celiac disease, which primarily involves gluten intolerance and causes diarrhea, and sciatica. Sciatica is usually caused by edema around this nerve or pinching of the nerve.

Can be normal: Some pain and swelling can be normal at this stage. May take close to 1 full year for complete resolution with good therapy. Signs of metal allergy include persistent pain and swelling, skin rashes, including hives , and x-ray findings of component loosening. A sample of the metal, provided by the implant company, can be taped to your arm to confirm. Ask your surgeon.

Return to your Docto: If pain is not better after few seats of antibiotics, you either have the wrong antibiotics or something else is causing the pain, so you better return to be checked.

A friend gets a severe pain on her lower right side of her abdomen and her tongue feels numb. What can this be? Her gallbladder was removed 3years ago

Probably unrelated: Abdominal pain and tongue numbness are likely unrelated. Many things can cause right sided abdominal pain, even after gallbladder removal. The most common things that cause tongue numbness is tongue swelling, most commonly due to allergies or poisonings.
