Customer Question
Hello, for about two...

Hello, for about two weeks, I have had symptoms of lower back pain, stomach pain and bloating. I have gone between having chills and sweating or feverish. I have diarrhea and sometimes have a headache. I feel fatigue most of the time. I'm a female 49 years, I'm 5"5 150 lbs. I don't want to keep taking IB profin, I'd just like to know what else I can do.

Doctor's Assistant: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?

Lately I tend to have one daily, and yes sometimes I feel nausea.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I do have Thyroid issues.

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Do you mean, have I been around other sick people? No, not really that I know of. The pain is in my stomach and kidney area, I'm bloated and feel like I can't eat. And pain radiates in my lower left back. And I'm feeling tired and gassy.
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 6 months ago

Ok. Have you had anything like this before?

do you have IBS?

do you have a gall bladder?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I've never been diagnosed with IBS and yes I have a gall bladder. I do have Thyroid disease and take levothoroxine for it. I've only sort of felt this way when having my period, but I have an IUD and don't bleed or have a period.
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 6 months ago

You could have something like endometriosis

This commonly causes GI issues

has this been checked?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
No, I have 4 children, 4 C sections and it was never an issue. My youngest is 15.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
One of the pains starts just under my rib cage, in the center, and that's where the bloating goes up to. My gall blatter is on the right and my pain is on the left.
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 6 months ago

You may have developed it now.

I would get an ultrasound.

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Would endometrosis radiate up under my rib cage? Would I just go to my general practictioner and request an ultrasound?
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
What about a colonoscopy?
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 6 months ago
I would do an ultrasound or cat scan first then a colonoscopy. And yes the pain from endometriosis can be all over the abdomen and pelvis

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
