I'm in so much discomfort and pain, it's really ridicules. I don't have any pain medication and I'm strictly against me taking any over the counter drugs for pain management, in less it's prescribed to me in small quantities.

Okay so last night I had went to the hospital due to this constant pain and throbbing pain in my right back and stomach area. They did a urine testing and a pelvic exam. I almost want to go back to the hospital, it's just it's getting hard to manage the pain and discomfort. They found an infection in my urine, and now I'm taking Apo-Doxy 100mg for a week twice daily. I know I just started it and should give it a change to work, I hate pain, pain that I can not handle bugs me the most.

They did testing on me and I have to go back tomorrow to find out the results of the tests. But, they never said anything about the pregnancy test on me or at least I don't recall them telling me. My breasts kill as well, I've never had breast pain before, I've had slight breast pain but it wasn't like days, it was mild and went away a few minutes after it started, this pain is staying like the pain my stomach and back. I have never had a infection in my urine before, I've been misdiagnosed for a urine infection but it was something totally different that mimicked it that was years ago. Odd thing they never told me what infection it was. From what the Pharmacy said, it has to do with inflammation of the vaginal area or something.

I know no one is medical professionals, maybe if I understood this better it would help. I'm going to go to bed and hope for the best tomorrow when I find out my test results.

I am sorry you are in so much pain, Alergnon.

You are right, there is not much we can tell you, since we are not doctors. But since you are going back again tomorrow, you can ask them about pain management then, and also ask any other questions you might have (such as about your breast pain, or the pregnancy test).

You can also ask them to explain to you what kind of an infection this is. From what you say, it sounds like you were diagnosed with a urinary tract infection, but if you are not sure and would like some more information, your doctor is the person to ask.
