Which tests?: How many and which tests did you have for ALL of them to come back negative? The only test needed to be done is a home pregnancy test (HPT) when your period was missed (4-5 days ago). You can wait 1 week & repeat the HPT. If that's negative then, see your OB/GYN. if 2 HPT's are negative (assuming they were done properly) the chance you're pregnant is very low. ...Read more

First : First of all let me say that i understand your frustration and concern. You want answers and you want your daughter's pain relieved. Based on your post it sounds like your daughter has some major issues going on and her doctors are trying to help but are currently unsuccessful at finding a diagnosis. However, tests are being done, so be reassured by this.I know you mentioned her insurance runs out in two weeks. I suggest you speak with a social worker and see if there is state or county insurance available to her. Once this is resolved i recommend getting your daughter in to see a pain specialist. There are many treatment options available to help alleviate her pain. As far as mri's go they can show: disc problems tumors arthritis infection nerve damage congenital spine problems now you also need to take into consideration the quality of the test, and even the positon of the patient during the test, which can affect the findings. Also the doctor interpreting the MRI may have missed something, simply human error. You can always request a second reading by a different radiologist. Give your daughter hope and encouragement always, and continue to seek care and push for a diagnosis and appropriate treatment. Good luck. ...Read more

I have had really bad back pain for 5 days now. Was constipated but pain subsided after BM last night , now have pain again though and am worried?

Acute back pain: Acute back pain can be caused by any number of issues, such as disc degeneration or herniated disc or muscle sprain. The good news is that the vast majority of acute back pain episodes will resolve with time and conservative treatment (i.e. NSAIDs) and progressive activity. The constipation probably just made the back pain worse. If you don't improve over time, then see your physician. ...Read more

Blood may be from...: Blood on toilet paper can be from hemorrhoids with or without constipation. Depending on the age of the patient, the doctor might also worry about polyps or colon cancer. Certain infectious "dysentery" diarrhea illnesses have bloody stools. If a constipated person drank a whole lot of apple juice, then his bowels upstream might strongly contract to push out the hard poop downstream. Ouch. Ouch. ...Read more
