Urethral structure : since you know you have a urethral stricture I assume you have been seen by and evaluated by a urologist in the past. Any regimen involving self dilation of the urethra should certainly be guided by a urologist. ...Read more

What are symtoms of a urethra strictute my pee comes out slow 30 percent of the time but the other times fast no prostatis does this sound like 1?

Possible: If you have a stricture, the urine flow can still vary considerably. Did this just start or has it been happening for a long time? Is it painful or cloudy? If this is a new condition or if it is getting worse, I would consult with a urologist. If you do have a stricture there is often dribbling of urine and straining to urinate. The best person to consult is a urologist. ...Read more

I've had moderate to severe pain in my pelvis for a while now. Had ultra sound done but nothing looked abnormal. Docs don't want to do anything further?

Pelvic Pain: Some pain in the pelvis is due to pelvic muscle spasm and a physical therapist may help if trained in this. Just because your ultrasound is normal does not mean you don't have pain. Get back with your gyn and let him know you are bothered and need help. Do not do this over the phone but make an appointment. ...Read more

I have severe chronic anemia bone pain back pelvis esp. many fx. 2per year approx high IgM 417. Does this sound like more than anemia? I see hem onc d

Possibly: There are some conditions that can be associated with chronic anemia, back pain, and elevated blood markers; multiple myeloma being one. I think you are doing the right thing by seeing a heme/onc specialist. If they have not done it, sometimes they will recommend a bone marrow biopsy. ...Read more

A focal pain like a shard of glass is in my pelvis where the pectineus connects to the pelvis. Does this sound like a stress fracture? Or soft tissue?

A focal pain like a shard of glass is in my pelvis where the pectineus connects to the pelvis. Does this sound like a stress fracture? Or soft tissue?

Soft tissue: Pain felt at pectinus insertion on pubic bone in twenties female absent childbirth/mechanical injury suggests soft tissue. Pectinius tendonitis suspect if supine person hangs associated leg over bed edge arousing pain. Referred pain from subluxing pelvic girdle sacroiliac joint ; symphysis pubis torsion a consideration. Diagnostic block would sort out. Joint hypermobility also a consideration. ...Read more

Had low back pain for 3yrs now.Then,CT of ab/pelvis normal.Now, pain mostly at nt.I wake up every nt. once to pee.Does this sound like rectal cancer?

Cancer not likely: Jessica, Cancer is a very uncommon cause for lower back pain. A normal CT Abdomen/Pelvis is some evidence against any cancer. Pain at night or while laying down is a cause for concern, but there are some very common reasons. Pregnancy or recent injuries could explain SI joint pain. Arthritis of the spine and Disc issues could also present at night. A spinal examination & evaluation is recommended. ...Read more

Experiencing low back pain, low abdominal pain, and swollen inguinal lymph nodes. had an ultra sound done, fluid was found in my pelvis. Fatigued?

Sometimes it is: just premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PDD), formerly known as PMS). And sometimes, it is pregnancy - check a urine preg test and if not pregnant, check again in 1 week if you are not menstruating. Pelvic fluid can be very nonspecific. Sometimes, it can be an ovarian cyst that has ruptured. Or UTI, infection of the urinary tract. Go get yourself checked by family physician. ...Read more
