STD? PID? UTI?: You're female, right? Are you referring to female "ejaculation" with orgasm? This probably is usually a squirt of urine, or maybe vaginal fluid. If urine, maybe you have a UTI. Vaginal bleeding plus pelvic pain is suspicious for pelvic inflammatory disease (PID, tube infection), usually due to gonorrhea or chlamydia -- obviously more or less likely depending on sexual risks. See a doctor ASAP. ...Read more

Fatty liver since 1999. Recent upper right side abdomen mild pain discomfort off on shifting position. US abdomen Feb 16. Advice, drugs, tests?

Reverse risk factors: Fatty liver is incredibly common, predominantly due to: high alcohol intake, diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity. The more of these risks you have, the greater the chance of fatty liver. Addressing these risks is an important step to correcting fatty liver.

Too complex for here: Many details will influence the diagnostic pursuit. T5 thoracic a little high to produce abdominal pain, but due to some anatomical features might be possible. "Severe pain attack" sounds like single episode. Were there more? If actual neuralgia ("neuritis") then pain pills won't work. But, best to get diagnosis. Chasing symptoms will probably not work well. Need MR of thoracic spine. ...Read more

I've had on/off pain in my stomach abdomen area for last few days. Also not been going to the bathroom normally. Is there a diet/drug I should try?

Miralax (polyethylene glycol): I recommend drinking lots of water and using miralax, (polyethylene glycol) this type of fiber works with your body and doesn't necessarily forces you to use the bathroom but lets you decide when you want to go. Each person has different reactions to fiber and some can cause bloating to some while others to have the same symptoms, so it is important to try a few to see which one works best for you. ...Read more

Please don't take it: Uncaringly. Even if this may sound harsh, I mean it in your best interests and w/ sympathy. Please think about what you're asking. If even intense treatment modalities like ECT and In-Patient stays were unable to relieve you and if the common range of powerful psychotropic drugs didn't either, what do you think we can write in 400 chars that will?
