Patient :Ive been having severe pain on the left side of my abdomen under the rib cage and towards my bellybutton which worsened when i urinated or had bowel movements. went to my GP and he perfomed a urine test and then told me that i have Cystitis. He injected the inflamed area and gave me some antibiotics, that was about two weeks ago. Of late Ive been having dull pains in the same area which go to the back (around the left kidney area if im not wrong), over my left pelvic bone and around the bladder area. I have no blood in my urine and the smell and colour is not strange, I drink a lot of water daily. It does get uncomfortablr to pee if my bladder is full so ive been urinating constantly and i have no other symptoms besides the pain. i had UTI twice in high school, is there a possibility thaat there could be something wrong with my left kidney or do i perhaps have endometriosis? my periods are normal and i have no abnoral discharge. i just dont know if i should consult a Gynae or a urologist.
Symptoms: Pain on the lower abdomen, constant urination.
