Hello! Just adding to the pile of confused people here. Last July I started getting really bad anxiety and panic attacks, those led to be being constipated quite often around October through very recently. My doctor had prescribed Colace which I took off and on, it did help but wasn't a cure.
Just after Christmas I had a severe pain inside my right shoulder blade that led me to the ER because I was vomiting. They didn't find anything wrong and sent me home but I still have pain there on an off but it has not been as severe as that one time. Maybe a month ago I noticed my pelvic area felt a little weird but wrote it off as just nearing my period. About 2 weeks ago I started feeling like I had a stitch in each of my sides. This did go with constipation a bit but it wasn't as bad. I saw my doctor about it last Wednesday and she ordered an ultrasound for gallstones which I did the next day. I've yet to see those results.
My pain is largely the lower right side of my abdomen/pelvic area but sometimes in my lower right rib too and it's always a stabbing pain. I never get a cramping pain, just stabbing/stitch pain. Not super severe but it's not comfortable at all and it reaches around to my sides, not really to my back though. Sometimes it will lessen with ibuprofen or just the right position. I also get this pain in my lower left abdomen but not as frequently, though I was awoken a few nights ago with lower left abdomen pain and nausea. I have not vomited since my ER visit but there have been several days where I've been nauseous all day. I have still been able to eat okay most of the days but some of them I've felt bloated easily. I haven't gained or lost any weight, no fever, and I haven't had diarrhea per say but I have had a few looser stools, the last 2 have been fairly normal and easy.
Yesterday I felt sort of okay, enough to walk around more than usual, so we walked to the grocery store and when we got back I had the stabbing/stitch feeling again on both sides. I still have pelvic pain too but I'm unsure if it's gyno related or related to my abdomen pain. (I have a gyno appointment for the 31st).
So while I'm waiting around for my ultrasound results does anyone have any insight?
