I'm a 24 year old female and have been suffering from an inflamed bowel for some time now, I had cdiff twice and they're not sure if my bowel is inflamed bc of this or if it's chrons (I'm undergoing tests at the moment).
However about 4 days ago now I started getting a new sort of pain, it's goes from the right side of my abdomen round to the back (sort of between the bottom of my back and my rib cage) at first it was just annoying, it was a stabbing pain but not terribly sore, as the days are going by its getting worse, and for some reason it's worse at night. It makes me feel sick and aggrivates any tummy pains I get.
I don't have a fever, nor do I feel unwell. But the pain is just getting so terrible nothing is helping (I've taken pain relief, hot water bottles, baths etc).
My Dr phoned on Friday evening with test results, she said that my pH levels in my urine were 5.6 and that makes my urine more acidic, she said she was waiting something else coming back and that she'd phone later on that day if she could, but I'd imagine she never got what she was looking for. So I'll have to wait till Monday now to speak to someone.
Does anyone know what this may mean? Is 5.6 bad? Does it explain the symptoms I'm having right now? I don't really care what it is I just want to know if anyone has had something similar and can recommend something to ease the symptoms until I can see someone on Monday.
Hope you can help, thanks
