Urethra Pain

Thursday, December 4, 2014


Question

I haven't been feeling the best these last few days and have had GI symptoms Sunday-Tuesday. Today was the first day I had a normal bowel movement but my lower back pain and inguinal pain is still persistent. The pain is dull and achy almost like a muscle strain but I am now concerned because my urethra feels sensitive. I don't have any other UTI symptoms like frequency, urge or changes in urine characteristics. Should I be concerned about the pain or tenderness of my urethra?

Sores

Monday, October 13, 2014


Question

I first noticed an open sore on my inner right thigh about a week ago and since then it has multiplied and I thought it was just from my legs rubbing together from walking but now there are 2 on my stomach and one on my inner left thigh. I am not sexually active and those are the only places they are found. I did put Neosporin on and cover them with a band-aid but I stopped doing that because when I would take the band-aid off, skin on the adhesive part would peel off as well causing another sore. The Neosporin does seem to work but new sores keeping popping up. Any idea on what this could be and how to treat it?

Stomach Pain & Cramping

Friday, October 10, 2014


Question

Ever since this past Friday, I get these random stomach aches and cramping, and eventually go to the bathroom. Normally when I go to the bathroom, I never have gas and now that seems to be all it is. None of my stools have been solid either. It almost feels like I can't go. The stomach aches happen randomly, maybe 3-4 times a day, which is annoying. They even wake me up when I'm sleeping. I've never had any issues like this, so I don't know what to do.
