BO under left armpit only. discomfort under both. left kidney pain comes and goes. green urine. sharp pain in lower left  abdomen. night sweats. what?

Green urine & sweats: This constellation of symptoms should be checked out by a doctor. I'm concerned u may have malaria and that green urine is actually broken up blood cells from the malaria parasites.

It could be other diseases too--but hope u get help as soon as possible. ...Read more

If ua clean other than red blood cells, might be a kidney stone. See a doctor for testing. ...Read more

I'm having very immense kidney pain from a cystoscopy with left retrograde. The percocets aren't working. If i go to the ER what would they do?

See below: They will probably check for UTI (urinalysis) and check blood work, as well as a renal us or possibly ct to see if your kidney is swollen (aka hydronephrosis). Transient ureteral obstruction related to internal swelling can occur from time to time after procedures such as the one you had. It typically improves within 24-48 hours with hydration and pain control. Good luck! ...Read more
