Hey, so I’m currently suffering with severe abdominal pain but there seems to be no cause to it. It started in February with a water infection which I was treated for with trimethoprim for 3 days, but since then it has come back four times. There seemed to be no cause to this, but I presumed the infection had become resistant to that particular antibiotic as I was still having the pain.
At the start of this week I went back to my GP who said that I had a very slight water infection (5th time), so she treated me for a 7 day course on trimethoprim but after 3 days the pain hadn’t gone and was getting worse and I was feeling constantly sick.
I went to A&E and the doctor said there was no sign of a water infection in my sample but STILL gave me medication for a water infection as a precaution. HOWEVER, the symptoms subside for a while but when I eat they come back in unbareable spasms for around 10 minutes and the pain goes back to being constant and dull.
Today I had an ultrasound on my kidneys, stomach, bladder and ovaries and all came back clear. I have been given no further advice and I’m worried that the cause is much more serious, but for some reason the scan didn’t bring anything up.
I’d really love advice on what I could do next or who to speak to as I feel like I’m going in circles with a misdiagnosis each time. My A-levels started yesterday and I was nauseous the whole way through so lost all concentration.
Hope one of you can help! 😩 x
