Gallbladder: You are very young and I don't have the benefit of seeing and examining you in person. Based on the whole constellation of symptoms though, I would think that you are having problems with you gallbladder. The symptom of the pain getting worse after eating, is what tips me to thinking it is your gallbladder, Especially if you are eating greasy and / or spicy food frequently.

Pelvic and side pain - urinalysis came back negative for uti. Also abdominal pain near navel and under ribcage out toward side pain. What could it be?

Other causes: Could be problem with your appendix, (can cause umbilical pain, but usually causes fever, decreased appetite, severe pain), could be signs of a sexually transmitted infection, or an ovarian cyst. Could be gastrointestinal (enteritis). Would watch for fever, or any worsening of pain - will need to be evaluated by your doctor. ...Read more

Blood in urine, CT normal, blood work normal, no pain while 'going' but a constant urge to go. Also doc. Unsure about uti. Also abdominal pain.??

Further evaluation: A direct inspection of the bladder called cystoscopy should be considered if an infection has been ruled out. Start with seeing your family physician and obtaining a UA and urine culture. Would see a urologist for the cystoscopy. If the CT was performed with IV contrast only, it may have missed a small ureteral or renal stone. Some bladder inflammatory conditions like IC should be assessed for. ...Read more

Did you have sex?: If you had unprotected sex since your last period, you could be pregnant with or without UTI. Do a home pregnancy test. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

I'm having nausea, heartburn, bitter / sour taste, stomach ache, pain in lower right abdomen, feeling like to pee. UTI or acid reflux?

I find it: Hard to find a "single" explanation for your symptoms. Therefore suggest you may have BOTH reflux and a UTI aand you can add Gallbladder problem as another possibility!
Hands on Examination strongly suggested!
Hope this helps!

I have had a UTI and finished the antibiotics on saturday. I am still having uncomfortable lower flank or abdominal pain. Is this normal?

Not normal: Need to have urinalysis + urine culture if urinalysis is abnormal because the antibiotic may either have been ineffective against bacteria causing the uti, or the bacteria became resistant to the antibiotic taken. You will need to go on an effective antibiotic, if this is the case. Giood luck. ...Read more

I've been having severe abdominal pain off and on for 3 weeks, I started thinking I had a UTI and now today my lower back on the left side aches?

Tested: Did you get tested for a UTI when you thought you had one? Did you take antibiotics? Severe abdominal pain could be a lot of things, but definitely should be evaluated, given that it's severe. Typically flank pain, as you describe is often associated with UTI or kidney stone. See a clinic or doctor though to get evaluated. Good luck! ...Read more

18 Y/O girl. Treated for uti earlier this year, symptoms still there. Night time urination and abdominal pain when waking. Possible alternatives?

UTI symptoms: How long since you were treated? Have you been seen since? A more in depth history, physical exam, and testing is needed. Please see your PCP for a work up. You likely need a urinalysis and possibly an ultrasound. Sexually active? STDs also need to be ruled out. ...Read more

What could be causing this? I am a female, who recently became sexually active. Since then, I have experienced pain during urination, which only lasted a few days and I thought it might just be a uti. But then I started getting abdominal pain, and now I h

Hello,: Hello, first, I need to advise you that I cannot diagnose the cause of your symptoms. The friction of the penis could irritate the urethra which would cause pain with urination. However, that would not explain abdominal pain. You could have a urinary tract infection which is effecting the bladder. If you have had a regular period since you last had unprotected sex, then you should not be pregnant. But if what you are trying to describe by "bleeding between periods" is spotting since you had unprotected sex, which is before the anticipated date of your period, that could be a different matter. In that situation there could be spotting from implantation with some mild associated cramping. But that usually would only be a for few days. If you are sexually active without protection that leaves you vulnerable to sexually transmitted diseases. Suggest that may want to discuss this with your doctor. ...Read more

Can a UTI or bladder infection cause lower back and abdominal pain that is pretty bad?

Can a UTI or bladder infection cause lower back and abdominal pain that is pretty bad?

Maybe not UTI: A urinary tract infection could do this, but several other potentially serious problems also are possible and perhaps more likely, depending on details (lower vs upper abdomen, vaginal discharge, fever, diarrhea, other symptoms. STDs may be possible if you are sexually active, and can cause urine abnormalities similar to UTI. So don't mess around with this -- see your doctor ASAP. ...Read more

Have UTI been treating 2 days. Now I have severe left side pain around my hip and goes into my leg, abdominal pain and sometimes pain on right too?

See doctor ASAP: If the diagnosis of UTI is correct, it is possible the bacteria causing it is not susceptible to the antibiotic and has spread into the kidney. Or the diagnosis may have been wrong: certain genital and abdominal infections can also cause UTI-like symptoms, especially STDs if at risk -- and your symptoms could be a fallopian tube infection (PID). Maybe this isn't serious, but don't take the chance ...Read more

I have confirmed UTI from doctor and just now am experiencing EXTREME abdominal pain and really bad bloating...is that normal? I am on Azythromiacin,

Uti: Simple urinary bladder infections usually don't include those complaints and I wonder if you're experiencing side effects from the antibiotic. Azithromycin is best taken with food to avoid this. It is not usually prescribed to treat UTI's as the common bacteria causing them are not sensitive to azithromycin in my experience although I don't know your urine culture and sensitivity results. ...Read more

Recently, found 2 kidney stones in my (L) kidney up to 6mm from ongoing abdominal pain and reoccurring UTIs. What can I do until I see Urologist?

See urologist today: 1) Get urine culture to identify organism causing UTI & start treatment. 2) Go to ER now if pain is severe & urologist can't see U today. 3) UTIs in presence of stones can not be eliminated until some have been removed because bacteria remain "hiding" in stone. 4) Stones > 6 mm will not pass spontaneously. 5) risk of obstruction. 6)Could respond to min. Invasive antibiotics & Shockwave lithotripsy ...Read more
