For how long have you had your symptoms?

Any change in appetite or weight?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
The abdominal swelling has been on and off for a year,the hip soreness for about 3months. Lower back pain is more recent...last couple of weeks. My kids have all been sick with colds this year so I assumed I caught a bug from them. Recent lack of appetite but no weight loss

Any other info necessary?
Expert:  Dr Singh replied 6 years ago.
Some likely causes for your symptoms are viral infection, osteoarthritis, liver disease and autoimmune disease. You will need some blood tests such as CBC, CMP, CRP, ANA and Rh factor. Lack of adequate nutrition especially proteins can also cause your symptoms including abdominal distension. So I would suggest eating a healthy well balanced diet, including proteins. Regular exercise should also help. I would also suggest taking a daily multivitamin supplement such as Centrum. And please see your doctor soon to get examined and tested.
