See your doc.: These are combined symptoms and suggestive of about two things. The first is viral and may last a little longer than usual. The chest pain may well be pleurisy or related to the viral illness. The low vit d, mag and FE may be related to diet. Have the doc comment on weight loss and how to treat the other problems In the long run you should be fine.

It might: A gynecology condition like endometriosis can sometimes be found on an appendix. Check with surgical pathology report if endometriosis was found in the specimen. Endometriosis can be associated with some of your symptoms. However, given that are 50, you may be better served with a multidisciplinary approach--seeing your gyn, pcp and GI docs for counseling. Make sure you had a colonoscopy also.

See a new Dr.: There are really a thousand different tests which can be performed on the human body. I wouldn't begin to know which ones, but seeing a new dr sounds like the best hext move for you if you are disatisfied with your current dr. I would start with a board certified internist or internal medicine doctor. Good luck.

Not likey: It is not likely that any of these are related. Odorous urine is more likely related to some food that you are or not drinking enough water.

Bleeding : Bleeding when you have a bowel movement is concerning, and it sounds like your symptoms are ongoing. I am glad that you have had a medical evaluation and a scope. I am assuming you mean a colonoscopy (from the bottom), which would be a test you must have. Did your doctor check for an anal fissure or hemorrhoids? You could try taking a stool softener like colace, (docusate sodium) but as your symptoms have persisted please be rechecked. If you have pain, increased bleeding, feel light-headed, or vomiting, then you must be seen as an emergency.
