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.

You may have: SPINAL STENOSIS (depending upon your age which is not stated with your question! This is a narrowing of your spinal canal due to degenerative arthritis of the lumbosacral spine! Check this possibility out with your PCP...BTW if you are under 40 years of age get a Gynecological check up!

What do you advise if I stopped the pop 11days ago and for the passed 4 days have had back pain and a dull ache in my lower abdomen.?

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!

Sounds like it: It could be. There are other things in that area that could account for it. Time will tell if the pain subsides, than likely it was.

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.

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.

Re accruing dull ache centre of my Lower abdomen makes me walk leaning what could this be?

Re accruing dull ache centre of my Lower abdomen makes me walk leaning what could this be?

Could be anything: It could so many things from just gas pains to bladder infection or a gynecological issue. I would need a lot more history to start including or excluding certain conditions. From what you're describing it appears to be severe so I suggest seeing a doctor today if possible.

Right lower abdomen, side, and lower right back sore but never at same time. Is this due to posture? Or could it be something else?

Right lower abdomen, side, and lower right back sore but never at same time. Is this due to posture? Or could it be something else?

Could be many things: And you really should be examined to be sure. Kidneys and bladder are in this typical pain pattern. However, the posture idea is also worth investigating. Women with certain types of low back pain (in certain of the parts that link the spine---facets and iliolumbar ligament) can have referred pain to the ovary area. But only an exam and urinalysis could begin to sort this out. Good luck!

Ovarian, bladder: The severe, dull, aching pain and cramping pains in the abdomen are often associated with bladder infections.

Very small chance...: ...Given that you're 20 years old, but nothing's impossible. You may want to review the many healthtap answers regarding causes ; cures for lower abdominal discomfort, but your best reassurance will come from your doctor after appropriate exam ; tests prove unremarkable. Be well--.

No, not normal: With your heavy bleeding and shortness of breath, you need to be seen to insure you have not become anemic. Call your OB and get a checkup done. If the SOB becomes worse today then go to the ER
