Upper right quadrant back pain radiating to front. Had UTI tests, blood tests and back X-ray.  Diagnosed arthritis.  Two weeks.  Is this possible?

Don't rely on them to necessarily provide a definitive diagnosis, as the role of the er is mostly to diagnose and treat life-threatening conditions.

Lower abdominal pain, lower back pain, fatigue, scheduled coposcopy for Friday morning, history of female issues. Extreme pain! What to do?

Low abdominal pain: Is this pain new or different from your previous pain experience? If it is, I would recommend seeing a physician as soon as possible. A few days is a long time to experience pain without relief. Also, if there is fever, nausea/vomiting, diarrhea and/or blood in the stool, I would recommend more urgent evaluation, such as in an ER type setting. Hope this helps!
