Burning sensation which started in left abdomen maybe ovaries after a very heavy period it has moved around my body to right side abdomen both breasts and front of calves what could be causing this i also have a lot of relatively large fibroids?

Could be fibroids: Fibroids are the most common cause of heavy periods. The pain you describe could also be due to fibroids. When large they can press on pelvic nerves to cause pain in the pelvis, hips, buttocks, thighs, and down the legs. Talk to your doctor. While many places would obtain a pelvic ultrasound, pelvic MRI would actually be better. It delineates the fibroids to see if they correlate with your pain. ...Read more

I just finished 7 days of cipro for a severe UTI. Was better 2 days after now having burning sensation in left flank and stomach area as well as when urinating. Doctor prescribed macrobid which I've used and doesn't seem to help. Found traces of blood in

Resistance : There is becoming a higher rate of resistance to meds used for UTIs, particularly with Cipro (ciprofloxacin) and especially with Macrobid. Keep track of your temperature and evaluate your flank pain throughout the day as you the infection could turning into pyelonephritis.
