I really would appreciate any feed back. I know doctors are very busy and don't seem to have the time for one patient, especially when you live in an area that have a shortage of doctors.
I have ulcerative colitis, on prednisone. Does colitis cause right upper quadrant, midline and side pain constantly, at times it radiates to my back and lower back. At times I get a heavy feeling in my vagina and rectum. I may go to the bathroom in 3-4 days. At times my vagina and rectum feel really irritated. No yeast infection. This may sound gross, but I wanted to to see if I could feel anything up inside my vagina, what I could feel was the shape of my feces.(only occurs when I haven't gone in a few days). My eyes even feel funny. I'm definetley not myself. I'm usually hyper, now I'm just pokey. Some days the pain is worse than other days. I find if I try to carry something on my right arm it bothers my right side of my abdomen. Morning time not to bad, it's when the day progresses. Just before my period the side pain is horrible. Blood work seems to be fine. I'm trying to convince myself that it's in my head. Please help me. Thank-you. Linda
The dominant symptom during ulcerative colitis is mucous-bloody diarrhea. Abdominal pain is also present. Pain in the upper right abdomen that radiates to your back can be also due to gallbladder stones so you must perform an abdominal ultrasound to confirm or deny this possibility. If the pain is provoked by physical effort when carrying something, then it could be a muscle pain, too. If you feel that you have something in your vagina, you can visit your gynecologist to check up.
