30yr old f/m experiencin agonisin lower right back pain wit loss of appetite n shortnes of breathe hav been treated 4 UTI n no kidney stones on scan?

Complex: No short answer possible. With the long experience that I have, I would interpret it as a failure of cellular energy. Shortness of breath in the absence of lung disease suggests "oxygen hunger". I suggest that you read my blog "oxygen, the spark of life" that you can google it may change your mind about how medicine is supposed to work. ...Read more

UTI? PID? See MD now: This sounds like an internal infection. Pyelonephritis (urinary tract infection involving the kidneys) would fit, except wouldn't normally cause vaginal discharge. Pelvic inflammatory disease or PID -- fallopian tube infection -- may be possible, but usually causes abdominal more than back pain. The main thing is to see a doctor ASAP. Whatever the cause, it could be serious if not treated soon. ...Read more

Last week I have nausea and vomiting dizziness back pain loss of appetite low fever tired now my period is late 3 days took a htp and it's neg?

Symptoms of preg?: Are you pregnant or not? Home tests are not perfect, but they are pretty good. It's still pretty early. If you had negative home tests each day for the next two days, and no period, then it is a good time to be checked with the office preg test and maybe address some of these symptoms. Or at least, if the symptoms are bothering you a lot, skip that and go to the clinic sooner. ...Read more

Upper outer breasts pain, mid and lower abdominal pain, lower back pain, loss of appetite, and fatigue. I'm not starting my period soon. What is this?

Hormones: It sounds as if it could be hormonal. Breast pain and tenderness is typically due to progesterone, lower abdominal and pack pain could be due to hormones as well. You mentioned that you aren't pre-menstrual, which would be most common reason for all of these. Are you taking birth control pills? Do you have a lot of stress right now? Maybe gastrointestinal since you have loss appetite. ...Read more

For the past few days I have been feeling awful with headaches, cramps & vomiting, back/neck pain, loss of appetite and sleeplessness what do I do?

Not that usual: But if you have been in bed it could be. Any urinary discomfort or change in urine? Could be infection in kidneys. Some arthritis issues are brought out by diarrheal illness. Any blood in the stool? Any rash/pain on or your feet? If you don't get better fairly quickly you should probably be checked.
