Lower abdominal pain. Frequent urination. Hurts to pass gas feels like it's being trapped. What could this be?

Many things: Lower abdominal pain in a woman could be from the bowels (e.g. constipation, irritable bowel, diverticulitis), the urinary tract (infection, kidney stones), ovaries (cysts, menstrual pain), uterus (pregnancy-related, menstruation related, endometriosis, sexually transmitted infections). A detailed history + examination + urinary test can help diagnose the majority of these possibilities.

After eating mcdonalds, I have severe lower abdominal pain. I figured it was gas and I have had a bowel movement, but it hurts to stand/move. Help!

Abdominal Pain: Could be several things in your age group. It's possibly unrelated to the mcdonalds food specifically. Appendicitis, ovarian cyst, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, viral colitis are among a few. Difficult to tell with short history. If you develop fevers, chills and persistent pain, you should go to the er. Health tip: don't eat mcdonalds....Ever! :).

For the past couple of days I've had major headaches, gas, bloating, and slight lower abdominal pain. (i recently had my gardasil vaccine too) thanks!

Call pediatrician: Since you recently had your Gardasil vaccine, it's best to contact your pediatrician, who gave you the vaccine, so that s/he can document your effects from it. It's good to also ask if you can be seen for follow-up, so that they can advise you what you can do to feel better. Always start with your doctor first.
