I'm 5 mos PP and for the past 5 weeks I've had vaginal bleeding. Sometimes it's heavy, sometimes it's light spotting. I brought it up to my OB and she told me it's not technically unusual bleeding. She pretty much chalked it up to being an irregular period. Which I can't really argue with because I haven't had a "normal period" in almost 4 years. I've also been having problems urinating (going often, it feels urgent out of the blue, sometimes it feels like a spasm afterwards).
And now my new symptoms are this really sharp pain in my right side. Starting in my lower rib cage, down to my hip, in the front and back. I've also had a terrible headache since then. I haven't been able to get up without crying all day, I've been taking ibu 800mg every 6 hours or so and it's no help.
Should I go in to the ER tonight? Or should I try to wait it out?
Also do any of these symptoms sound like anything. I have no idea what it could be.
I'd go in because it sounds like you could possibly have a kidney infection :?
Sounds like an UTI or something like that with the urination problems and pain.
Possible Kidney infection, or maybe a kidney stone?
Quoting Bettinas:" I'd go in because it sounds like you could possibly have a kidney infection :?"
Either infection or kidney stone.
