Colonoscopy: Often after colonoscopy distention and cramping may occur. During the procedure air is used to inflate the colon for better visualization. This may cause the symptoms you describe.

Here are some ...: What you described suggests your voiding symptoms have quietly emerged over many years so you might have increasingly & more often felt so as years pass by. Did backache add more problem? May be. To sort out what have been happening to you, see urologist for analyzing detailed symptoms & their sequence of event timely, conducting physicals, testing UA / residual urine, etc. so to deduce Dx for Rx. ...Read more

"Just" stress?: Even stress needs care and attention, if this is what's happening with your daughter. You and her doctor need to gently ask about the pains and situations in which it arises. Things can happen that we'd never know about otherwise. Has she been hurt or injured? Please accompany her to her doctor for assessment and help with this. Good luck to you both. ...Read more

Unllikely: The major side effects of metformin are stomach cramps, bloating, and loose stools which usually resolve after 1-2 weeks but may persist. If you have lower back and side pain in addition to stomach complaints it might be the metformin but unlikely if it is just back and side pain ...Read more

Not if urine is neg: A urine pregnancy test will tell you, since they are very sensitive, generally at about a week from your missed menses. Although these symptoms are often associated with pregnancy, they are very nonspecific, and some, such as headaches and stuffiness, generally don't occur early in the pregnancy. Symptoms of abd/pelvic pain could = an abnormal pregnancy, so if your preg test is +, see a doctor. ...Read more
