Briefly in a nutshell I am having stomach cramps which move about at their own will, aching abdomen on both sides near kidneys, pain in buttocks & top of leg, no sickness but feeling of nausea & moderate diahorea.
I am currently on a weeks course of trimemothoprin for a water kidney infection & am constantly emptying my bladder with a bit of pain when I do & the stomach pain can only be described as dull, also quite a lot of flaulance & first thing in the morning dark coloured smelly urine which improves over the course of the day with 2 litres of water intake.
I am currently in 10 days time about to fly to Ibiza for 2 weeks for a well deserved holiday with my wife, daughters & grand children & always seem to get this ailment 3 to 4 weeks before I fly which always gets me down.
I don't know if its anxiety related at all but I think of things constantly like will I be to ill to fly ? How could I live with myself if the families holiday was cancelled because of me ? Will I be I'll at the airport or whilst I'm away on holiday ? Etc etc etc, sounds silly I know but I do wonder if if the pain & SYMPTOMS are real or just in my head through constant worrying of what COULD be wrong ?
I also get similar symptoms when driving long distances when I feel out of my comfort zone ?
4 years of taking Methotrexate for psoriasis I think has done something to me in terms of general health but did have the sense to stop taking it in February 2015.
I had these symptoms the last time I flew abroad & as soon as I was at my destination & knew that I couldn't ruin it for everybody by not getting there the stomach cramps, diarrhea & acid reflux cleared up completely, this is baffling me, I know its not a new problem & the pain & discomfort feels real but I'm sure I'm making things worse by thinking of what COULD happen, any help or advice on this from anybody with similar problems would be greatly appreciated, thank you for taking the time to read this post.
