Go to doc STAT: Discuss obtaining testicular ultrasound and pelvic CT scan with contrast. My "worst case scenario" is testicular cancer. Men between ages of 17-35 are at greatest risk. Pelvic & back pain could be referred, but you have to look at the lymph nodes & inguinal canal (pathway gonads took as they traveled down the pelvis during embryogenesis). Treatment is very successful with excellent survival rate. ...Read more

No taper down?: You mean your doctor did not recommend a tapering down schedule of soda pop? I mean he just asked you to cold turkey the stuff? Geez! What are these kids learning in medical school these days? LOL! Sorry, couldn't resist. Your symptoms have nothing to do with the fact that you stopped pop. You did something good and now you have some other problem. Totally unrelated. Live long and POPser! ...Read more

Doctor can evaluate: For aches in the abdomen, with a negative pregnancy test, one should call the primary care doctor or the ob-gyn (sometimes the aches are not due to menstrual or pregnancy issues). The doctor can get the details and offer some advice. Since it has been about 15 days since a possible conception date, the pregnancy test could still turn positive this week, even though the first test was negative. ...Read more

See your doctor.: There are many things that can cause right lower sided abdominal pain in a young woman. Since it is worse with standing, however, it should be evaluated by your doctor. It is not likely, but always possible that you could have appendicitis, and that needs to be looked at. Good luck. ...Read more
