Hi Pablo. So before this morning you were fine and never had any of this before? And you're saying you have no pain now? Where exactly was the stomach pain when you had it?

I understand your concern. Any burning with your urination?

not,just red color
OK--there are a few possibilities here. This could have been a kidney stone that you were lucky enough to pass quickly, although it could still be stuck in your ureter and once it starts moving again, you'll have the pain come back. Second, you may have a prostate gland infection that could also cause the back pain that you had. As for the sweating and nearly fainting, that was probably a vasovagal reaction to the pain--the vagus nerve slows down the heart rate and lowers the blood pressure. While none of this is dangerous, you need to see a doctor and get a urinalysis and a ct of the abdomen as well as a digital (finger) exam of your prostate gland.

what it's ct of the abdomen?also do you think a prostate gland infection could be cause bad erection function and don't have to much wish to have sex?
A CAT scan--a special type of x-ray that looks at all the organs in the abdomen and it can pick up a kidney stone. And, yes, a prostate infection can cause erection problems and loss of the desire to have sex.

finally ,in your experience you don't think this could be a mayor or serious problem??that could be need a emergency atention?
Not so major that you need the ER today, but I would like you to see a doctor tomorrow and let me know what he says and does.

ok but i don't have chance to visit the dr. til next week i mean next friday that's it's ok?

and thanks for your help!!

If you feel fine from now on--no more severe pain or dizziness or fainting feeling, Friday will be fine. That said, if this happens again--the severe pain and the sweats and the faint feeling--then you need to be seen right away.
