Hi, I had a one day period with normal flow then it stoped and I've gone to spotting just a little with horrible back pain onlu on the left side and low abdominal cramps. Is this normal?

What your normal?: When patients have abnormal periods I always want to know what their normal pattern is. If most periods are normal then one abnormal one (late, early, short, long) is not usually a cause for concern. The cycles tend to regulate and get back to normal quickly. The left sided pain should be evaluated by your doctor. Many things could cause this but an ovarian cyst would be high on my list. ...Read more

I have missed my period. Having abdominal bloating and back pain. I didn't have sex since past one year. What could be the reason?

I have missed my period. Having abdominal bloating and back pain. I didn't have sex since past one year. What could be the reason?

Hormonal imbalance: Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

Could up middle back pain be from cervical stenosis. And could it cause any burning in right abdominal flank? Present one year. Ct ok

Could up middle back pain be from cervical stenosis. And could it cause any burning in right abdominal flank? Present one year. Ct ok

Not likely: Cervical stenosis would be more suspect to cause weakness and/or pain in the arms. Some degenerative neck disease can refer some pain to the upper back, but stenosis is less likely. The abdomen and flank burning would more likely come from the thoracic spine if it is nerve related. Sounds like you need a definitive diagnosis. May be time to see a specialist if not already seeing one. ...Read more

No period since November one day of bleed end of dec, abdominal cramps lower back pain nausea right hip hurts hpt negative?

Irregular menses: A negative pregnancy test rules out pregnancy. If you have been having unprotected intercourse and even after a negative test you are still worried, a serum preg test can be obtained from your doctor. You do not necessarily ovulate every cycle and can have a skipped or light bleed as you described. Keeping a menstrual calendar would help here. ...Read more

I'm taking mopeloxicam ones daily for 2 years now for chronic back pain. What measures should I do to continue usng it without harming liver or kidney?

First, take a break.: You should stop taking it for a while. Meloxicam is an anti-inflammatory and has the potential to affect the kidneys more than the liver. I'm actually worried about the fact that you're so young and your back has been hurting daily for two years. Has the issue involved been diagnosed? Have you had any imaging studies? Two years is a long time to have an undiagnosed source of pain. ...Read more

Can taking Percocet for back pain cause liver and kidney damage? Been taking for almost a year. Less than prescribed but at least one a day.

Highly unlikely: The oxycodone is Percocet is not the cause of the problem - it is the tylenol (acetaminophen). One tablet contains 325 mg of tylenol, and that is not enough, even daily, to cause harm in someone who is otherwise healthy and not on other medications or substances (like alcohol in excess) that can damage liver or kidney. Look into non-opiate ways to treat pain:physical therapy, weight loss, exercise. ...Read more

Bad stomach and back pain. Stomach feels hard almost like a cramp or contraction that will not go away. Had this pain before and no one knows what is.

See doctor: Pain is your body's way of telling you something is wrong. You need to be seen for a full history, physical exam, and testing to find out what is the problem. If your doctor hasn't found the answer, you might need to see some one else or go to a university medical center for more expertise. Hope this helps and you feel better fast. ...Read more

1st x this yr happened previously 3 times I fill up with so much gas that my stomach is distended, back pain due 2 gas belching severe gas pains A LOT of over-the-counter gas meds 4 24 hr to fl bt?

Gas and acid reflux: These symptoms seem related to stomach and intestinal gas with acid reflux. You may also be relatively constipated. I recommend adding much more fiber to your diet, like high fiber cereal, oatmeal, apple, pear, celery and avoiding banana and greasy meat and pasta and sauce. Eat smaller amounts. Drink 2-3 liters of fluid per day in small sips. Do not gulp. Take simethicone. ...Read more

Aortic anuerysm? Extreme upper and middle back pain, small stomach discomfort, I'm very scared please help can I have one at 16

Very rare: Highly unlikely unless you have some familial connective tissue disorder or some significant chest/back trauma or a congenital heart defect. More likely some back or neck issue. Might be a good idea to get checked out just to relieve your anxiety and find a more likely cause. Or rule out some of the aforementioned problems if you have never been checked before. ...Read more
