There : There is a chance that you could be pregnant. The hormone of pregnancy (beta hcg) that is detected in over the counter home pregnancy test varies from test to test, meaning the amount it picks up varies. If you are in the early stages of pregnancy, then there is a chance that the level is too low for the test to pick it up so to speak. To be certain a blood test can be ordered by your familty doctor or ob/gyn to give you a definitive answer. The more pressing issue is the the burning and cramping you are feeling in your lower abdomen. This could be a sign that you may miscarry if you are pregnant, premenstrual cramps, or even a UTI (urinary tract infection). It is up to your doctor to figure this out.On the other hand, if in fact you are pregnant, serial blood tests can be done to determine if your pregnancy is progressing or not (inevitable miscarriage). Either way you need to be seen right away. Good luck to you.

Period : Pregnancy can cause breast to be sore . In early pregnancy , pregnancy test can be negative . Burning and cramping feeling with delayed period can be due to miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy. Please see your doctor for further examination, and bloods .

With all of those go: See your primary care doctor for a thorough workup. There are so many possibilities that 400 spaces here could not do them justice. If you are not getting answers from your current physician, there certainly no reason for not getting a second opinion and even several specialty opinions if necessary to clearly define the problems. Do that at the soonest possible date.

Urinary losses: Unless you have long standing diarrhea or take water pills, you abnormally lose potassium in urine. Need to see a nephrologist. It is possible that your adrenal gland secretes more of aldosterone hormone than normal. Lab tests would confirm this. There are other possibilities too that need to be ruled out by your doc. It may end up that you will need to take a potassium pill or two, long term.

See doctor...: You need to see your doctor asap so that your mouth, especially tongue and throat, can be examined. Is your tongue a different color than usual? Is it swollen? Any difficulty breathing? Any skin rashes? It is not possible to make this diagnosis without actually examining you so call your doctor today!
